Vintage fashion, which has become widely popular, has been booming in recent years. Whether it is for the sake of more responsible and environmentally conscious consumption, because it offers an economical alternative to fast-fashion, or because of the craze for retro style, the vintage sector continues to gain ground. Numerous e-shops dedicated to second-hand clothes have been created and are full of little marvels in noble materials at affordable prices. 

Acumen Galerie Joseph offers you its list of favorite online shops where vintage is king!

The most streetwear 

GOAT 

Backed by Foot Locker, GOAT is the “safest” marketplace for sneakers, clothing and accessories. The authenticity of the pieces is verified with the dealer network. 

What do we like about GOAT? A combination of data, artificial intelligence and hand inspections. We don’t hesitate a little less to put the price on rare editions of sneakers that we missed the official sale.

STOCKX

StockX is really the reference for streetwear. You can buy and sell sneakers, handbags, watches and streetwear in new condition. The system works according to a specific modality: buyers place an offer on the model they want while sellers ask for a price. When the offer meets the demand, the transaction is validated. The seller sends the item to StockX (in Detroit or London), which, after checking its authenticity, sends it to the buyer.

The most luxurious

Vintage Paris

This is the ideal website for luxury vintage accessories: the selection presented is sharp and the site well laid out. The blog, as well as the e-shop, keeps us up to date with the latest discoveries, which are proposed directly. 

From Chanel handbags to Hermès scarves, from Gucci belts to Saint Laurent sunglasses and umbrellas by Hugo Boss. Vintage Paris is one of the best vintage e-shop.

Vestiaire Collective 

Vestiaire Collective is no longer to be presented: Founded in 2009 by six French co-founders, this platform is the pioneer of luxury deposit-sales. This website has succeeded in transposing the concept of the online deposit-sale and offers total control over the authenticity of the pieces. 

What can you find there? Collector’s items, gold items ranging from ready-to-wear to accessories with the Celine, Louis Vuitton, Chanel logos: earrings or a Yves Saint Laurent brooch, a Hermès square, all at unbeatable prices.

Vintage Couture   

We are seduced by the diversity of the pieces brought together by Vintage Couture. Designed by Lynda Larner and her daughter, the website offers unique vintage clothing and accessories often not found elsewhere, from iconic brands such as Gucci, Balenciaga, Celine, Chloé, Hermès, and even vintage haute couture wonders. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as well as Michelle Williams are regular customers. 

Archived 

Managed by men’s fashion archivists, Archived is a highly specialized platform that brings together a wide range of brands, including pieces that are often impossible to find. Their online store is teeming with cult pieces whose value is well known.
