Shopping for preloved items are not longer just about saving money or scoring a limited edition item you missed out on. It’s also driven by a desire to shop more ethically and to become more sustainable.
“People are much more aware of their role in the circular economy,” says Hanushka Toni, who owns Sellier Knightsbridge, a luxury consignment store in London. “Of course fast fashion will always have its place, but there is a certain responsibility that comes with being a consumer and more people are realising how collectively, we as individuals can make a hugely positive change for our environment.”
In that spirit, we’ve rounded up eight online stores for the best preloved, authentic designer finds.
