As more shoppers gain awareness of the environmental impacts of fast fashion, many of them are turning to buying second-hand or vintage items as a more sustainable way of shopping.
Vintage items are not necessarily old and outdated items. In fact, many of the vintage items are kept in great condition. They are not only fashionable, but they’ve also withstood the test of time, making them highly sought after these days. And since these clothes and accessories are vintage, they’re often quite unique, so you won’t see others donning the same look as you as you walk down the streets.
If you’re also looking to get yourself one of these vintage luxury items, take a look at our round-up of 17 stores in Singapore that you can purchase them from!
