The ‘pre-loved’ market is booming and Re-SEE is at the top of it's game, truffling out old treasures as modern wardrobe gems. Co-founder Sofia Bernardin talks authentication, styling and discovering future collectibles.
"How would you wear it today? Everything starts from there," says Sofia Bernardin, co-founder of online vintage emporium Re-SEE. Founded in Paris in 2013, Re-SEE's mission is to change the way we view vintage, and it's all in the curation. Think Hermès bags from the ‘60s through to the ‘90s, when the quality of the leather and hardware was at its finest; Karl Lagerfeld's ‘90s-era Chanel; and Phoebe Philo's Céline - timeless, cherry-on-top items, authenticated, restored and restyled in a contemporary way. Behind this treasure trove is an expert team led by Sofia and her co-founder Sabrina Marshall, who are providing Luminaire clients with an exclusive Closet Evaluation service, including product valuation and identifying key pieces to invest in.
