Louis Vuitton collaborations have been around for decades. Missed one from a few years ago? Vestiaire Collective is a great platform to hunt for missed opportunities, like this boxing bag inspired monogram piece by Karl Lagerfeld for Louis Vuitton.
Off White x Converse Trainers
Don’t want to wait in line for the latest sneaker? Neither do we. But these Off White x Converse high tops are as covetable as they are collectable. Shopping tip—you can refine your search to styles available in your size to save time (and disappointment).
It’s a safe bet that savvy Philophiles are scouring the internet to buy up the last of Phoebe Philo’s Céline, and there is plenty to sort through on Vestiaire Collective. Understated knits, boxy tailoring and jewellery seem to be the first things to go. This wrap-around sweater from her final collection tops our wishlist for Fall.
Christian Dior Saddle Bag
Christian Dior’s iconic saddle bag has come back in a big way in recent seasons. It's made its way from the back of closets to front and centre on some of the most fashionable women around the world. The Return of the IT Bag? Most definitely. Earn style points by toting a Galliano archive, like this monogramed version with Rasta detailing.
Chanel Paris Shanghai Jacket
For those in the know, Chanel Metiers d'Art Collection archives pieces make for great collector's items. From Dallas to Rome, Shanghai to Salzburg, Karl Lagerfeld has hosted shows against some of the most iconic city backdrops. Paris-Shanghai from Pre-Fall 2010 is a personal favourite, and this olive green Lesage tweed jacket with sequins, gold leather camellia appliqués is sure to be a statement jacket that can be worn with just about anything for years to come.
Maison Martin Margiela Coat
For those who visited the Maison Martin Margiela exhibition in Paris’ Palais Galliera, this collectable one-of-a-kind duvet long coat may look familiar. It’s from his 1999 artisanal collection, which features a concealed front fastening, long sleeves, full length and asymmetrical lapels.
Customised Hermès Kelly Handbag
In search of some unique and hard to find Hermès colourways? Vestiaire Collective is a platform that offers plenty. This Kelly 32 is customised with pearl white handles, gold detailing and white spots on blue leather, mirroring a bright night sky.
Jean Paul Gaultier Cowboy Boots
Arguably one of the biggest boot trends of the season is the return of the cowboy shape, so why not saddle up in these vintage Jean Paul Gaultier boots. Pair them with blouse and mid-calf pleated skirt, or rock them with denim.
Alaia Python Biker Jacket
There are very few things that never go out of style, and anything by Azzedine Alaia is certainly one of them. The original King of Cling has made a name for himself for his inimitable way of cutting dresses to flatter the woman’s body. Not to mention python is arguably the animal print and skin for FW18.
Céline Dot Pearl Earrings
Insider intel: Céline jewellery pieces have been some of the fastest-selling accessories on various second-hand platforms since the annoucement of Pheobe Philo's departure, so score these while you can. The minimalist design will complement everything from modern tailoring to cocktail attire.
