I Asked 6 Fashion Insiders to Find Share Their Ultimate Pre-Loved Wish Lists—This Is What They Sent Me


Some of my best buys in recent years have been pre-loved. I bought my Prada Cleo on eBay (using the authenticity guarantee feature), brand-new Prada sandals from Vestiaire Collective and an Arket blazer from Vinted. Growing up, buying secondhand wasn’t “cool”, but now with a shift in our shopping habits to be more sustainably minded and so many pre-loved sites, apps and shops around, it’s a brilliant way to add to your wardrobe whilst doing your bit for the planet.

I love that you can track down an item that may have previously sold out, find a vintage piece no one else will have or score a designer buy for a lot less. The only thing is, it can take a bit of searching, which is why I’ve called in the experts. Sharing their secondhand spring wish lists below are three Who What Wear UK editors, joined by the founders of pre-loved sites Sign of the Times, Curate & Rotate and Rites. And they’ve found a Saint Laurent blazer, Loewe bag, Bottega Veneta trench and Maison Margiela flats, to name a few.
