If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been going on on the runways this season, chances are you’re aware that vintage is in. While we’re all for pre-loved luxury items – we’re talking one level up. Think: iconic archival pieces that have played a role in shaping fashion and pop culture as we know it today. And while Versace’s Spring/Summer 2020 J.Lo moment spurred a viral social media moment, it’s also brought to light a newfound appreciation for longevity, timelessness and history amongst fashion followers.
Honouring British designer Alexander McQueen’s extensive archive ten years on from his death is pre-owned luxury goods reseller Vestiaire Collective. Collaborating with Love Magazine editor Harriet Verney (niece of iconic fashion editor and long-time friend of McQueen’s, Isabella Blow) Vestiaire Collective will be selling a specially curated selection of his pieces. One can expect highlights such as The Tiger Dress – which was worn by British model Stella Tennant in McQueen’s ’96 show and of which there were only two pieces ever made – as well a pair of low-rise bumper trousers worn by none other than Madonna herself.
Below, browse the avant garde vintage edit of the year – in our humble opinion – that will have you owning a piece of history (if you decide to splurge big, of course).
