Secondhand is an attitude towards fashion that I have always been drawn towards. Since I was a teenager I used to pillage my mom’s wardrobe for the best pieces that got back into fashion as well as timeless classics and still do so today. I admire my mom’s senses for fashion and that she funnily always kept those pieces that magically came back into style a few decades after their 1st appearance in her closet.
Secondhand is also a way of doing fashion that I practice quite heavily cooperating with places like SuperBrands Secondhand with stores in Zug, Switzerland and Frankfurt as well as Düsseldorf/Germany as well as a profound online assortment. SuperBrands Secondhand sets new standards when it comes to shopping secondhand by being absolute experts in both timeless classics and latest it pieces and have the outstanding ability to very thoroughly curate these contrasts to perfection. Shopping secondhand and cooperating with places like SuperBrands Secondhand when clearing your closet does also establish a new understanding of sustainability in the luxury segment and makes sure that your pre-loved treasures get the chance to become someone else’ new ones. I personally think it’s amazing how the assortment of secondhand boutiques has developed over time and how they offer the possibility to find exactly what you’re looking for without even knowing before you find it. It’s great to be able to stroll through an assortment that reflects many decades of fashion as well as timeless pieces and latest trends. The offer of secondhand boutiques is very wide these days with clothing as well as bags and accessories like shoes and jewelry. I love strolling through secondhand boutiques and get inspired by what I see, combine pieces from different labels and even decades and curate something unique and unseen.
I want to take the opportunity to show you a few styles which SuperBrands Secondhand curated for me and I count as true hidden gems. The perfect business dress to impress? For me, a business look is based on a mix of top brands to create a chic yet eye-catching ensemble. This business look, based on pieces by CHANEL, HERMÈS and DIOR I think for sure is a one of a kind compilation.
I was really happy when I found the lovely 70s spirited look with its mix of patterns that simply feel like the perfect match. I think it would be a perfect St. Tropez style and will keep this vintage MAISON VALENTINO look it in my closet for exactly that happening.
I am a firm believer of the fact that looking classy never goes out of style! A timeless CHANEL coat is an investment for life and one of those pieces that get more charming over time. Pieces like these can often be found in secondhand boutiques and I love that it seems like every single one tells a story and carries history. Best of both worlds is what is combined in this outstanding CHANEL cardigan in popping pink as it is cozy but also super chic and stylish. And from my point of you an absolute all time classic that suits every woman and most occasions.
