As fast fashion goes out of style, secondhand fashion is steadily making its way in. For proof, look no further than Zalora, which now boasts over 5,000 luxury offerings from Vestiaire Collective.

For those not in the loop, Vestiaire Collective is one of the world’s biggest online luxury resale platforms. It offers rare gems like vintage Dior Saddle bags, Tabi boots actually designed by Martin Margiela and even pieces from the legendary Louis Vuitton x Supreme collection.

Thanks to Zalora’s new partnership with Vestiaire Collective, you can now get your hands on these treasured designer goods with just a few clicks. Under the “Pre-Loved” section on Zalora’s app and website, you’ll find clothing, bags, shoes and other accessories for both men and women from past seasons.

Among the mix are secondhand Hermes Birkin bags, Gucci sweaters, quilted purses from Chanel and an array of old Celine pieces. Even newer labels like Jacquemus and Off-White are featured. The best part? You don’t have to worry about sifting out the fakes or knock-offs. Each item listed has already been authenticated and inspected for quality by Vestiaire Collective’s team of luxury fashion experts.

Zalora’s partnership with Vestiaire Collective is a big deal: it showcases the online fashion retailer’s commitment to promoting a circular fashion movement in Asia, which is ultimately better for the environment than a steady stream of new fashion products.

“Sustainability is one of the founding pillars of our business and we’re thrilled to open the doors of pre-loved fashion to more users in new markets, allowing more people to embrace circularity in their daily lives,” say Zalora’s Chief Regional Officer of APAC, Pierre Everling.

This isn’t Zalora’s efforts towards shaping a sustainable fashion future, either. Last year, it announced a partnership with StyleTribute, a Singapore-based vintage luxury fashion marketplace.

The rise of resale and pre-loved fashion couldn’t have come at a better time, now that fashion production is at a standstill and brands are configuring the way they operate altogether. If you haven’t quite embraced the world of vintage designer fashion yet, Zalora is a convenient place to start.
