For several years now, trends have fluctuated between the style of the 90s and 80s. Dior revived a saddle bag from that period, Gucci in the FW’20-21 collection showed an accessory from the 2000s on the catwalk . Given this trend, it is not necessary to buy new things “antique”. In addition, in the light of recent events, everyone concludes that we produce too much clothing. And while some brands are abandoning the seasons , other platforms are starting to sell vintage things. In addition, to become a happy owner of a vintage item from Chanel at half price, or even less, is always pleasant.
There are more and more vintage stores with selected and cleaned items every year. The resale market is growing twice as fast as retail. And this is another small victory in the struggle for sustainability.
It is worth remembering that a vintage thing can be called if it is not less than 20 years old. When buying vintage items, you need to take into account several nuances in order to enjoy wearing things with history.
