In support of Oxfam.
Second Hand September is officially underway and Vestiaire Collective is giving consumers even more reasons to buy used goods this month with the launch of its second charity sale.
The idea is to encourage people to buy only second-hand clothes throughout the month of September in order to raise awareness of the importance of circular fashion. According to the company, more than 13 million items of clothing go to landfill every week. So, to encourage second-hand shopping, the site has teamed up with some of the world’s most stylish people who have donated pieces from their own wardrobes for sale (which takes place in partnership with Oxfam).
To be won: an Yves Saint Laurent blazer by Kate Moss, a Miu Miu skirt by Naomie Harris, a Prada dress by Carey Mulligan, an Isabel Marant jumpsuit by Thandie Newton, an APC suit by Maisie Williams, a Rixo dress by Erin O ‘ Connor and more.
Commenting on the initiative, Harris said in a statement, “Circular fashion isn’t just about fashion, it’s about protecting the environment and it’s important that we do whatever we can to make it happen. Reducing the impact of our wardrobes on the environment can bring long-term changes towards a more sustainable future. It is important that everyone plays their part.
The charity sale is available exclusively through the Vestiaire Collective app and will run from today until September 23. Shop here.
