There's a new trend on the streets and these pages are our favorite – the Executive Summary

The growing concern about sustainability in the fashion industry has given rise to a growing trend: thrift stores specializing in luxury brands. These stores, both online and physical, provide a more accessible and environmentally friendly alternative to purchasing high-quality fashion, without contributing to the overproduction of textiles that characterizes the industry, says La Vanguardia.

Luxury thrift stores, such as Vestiaire Collective, Farfetch Second Life, Sellier, Reluxe, and Hardly Ever Worn It, have become a reference for this new way of consuming fashion. These platforms not only offer a wide range of spare parts and accessories from sought-after brands but also prioritize the authenticity and quality of the products through stringent verification processes.

For example, Vestiaire Collective banned the sale of ultra-fast fashion brands on its platform and set strict criteria for selecting acceptable brands. On the other hand, Farfetch Second Life is part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Make Fashion Circular initiative, which is committed to promoting circularity in luxury fashion.

Sellier, a British platform, is characterized by its rapid growth and focus on exclusive brands. Founded by fashion designer Claire Richardson, Reluxe seeks to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible and offers a wide range of brands, including exclusive collaborations. Finally, UK-based Hardly Ever Worn It has become a powerhouse in the pre-owned luxury market, offering a range of products from over 1,300 brands.

Not only do these stores offer a sustainable alternative to purchasing luxury fashion, but they are also committed to initiatives that promote environmental stewardship and social responsibility. From charitable partnerships to recycling programs, these platforms are leading the way toward a more sustainable future in the fashion industry.
