132: This is the first pair of Céline Pirates I've seen for sale in months
Jean’s Paul Gaultier at Maj Kiosk, Miu Miu men's on eBay, and Rimowa from Grailed.
Named for the large, vertical newspaper format, think of this weekly supplement as a shopping cheat sheet cribbed from far-reaching corners of the internet.
I’m going off-format again this week because having too many parameters is a drag and frankly I’m doing the most browsing on resale lately anyway, as with JPG’s self-knockoff line “Jean’s Paul Gaultier”—the same that Chloe Sevigny sold me thinking it was a fake—is priced quite nicely at under $300 for this linen bustier dress from Maj Kiosk; somber summer deserves a wardrobe as elegant and easy as this crochet Chanel tunic from SS08 (very aspirational Hamptons gloom); the Phoebe-era Céline Pirate shoes come around online only once every six months or so, and always around this price, though these are in particularly enviable condition; two sheer Comme universe blouses that are among the few conceivable “well-dressed” items to wear in this heat, starting with a white Tricot shirt from SS17 with impossibly darling little mesh rosettes that’s just $182; and there’s this main line FW95 top, the kind of thing every self-declaring Fashion type should have in their closet along with their Pleats Please separates and Tabi boots.
Currently at Club Vintage, a Dolce dress from Leandra Medine’s closet that doesn’t hold back on Italo-romantic motifs stacked up to leave you looking like a tin of olive oil (wistful); we’re not quite in the season yet, but here’s a great army-green parka from Miu Miu SS99, the men’s collection from those pictures of Cillian Murphy and Josh Hartnett going around…sext; OK not “old” per se, but this Miu Miu SS22 sheer number is a snapper-upper (if my loyalty to my sheer orange Dries skirt is any indication, you know this to be true), however if you want something with a bit of wisdom over the years, this Prada from SS06 has more real-life applications; the most expensive Hermes bag on resale currently is this croc Birkin with diamond hardware for $475k, so there’s an urgency bell going off inside of me that this flirty Hermes Bombay is only $1,000; and my ongoing trawl for good vintage Donna Karan has led me to believe this delicate sequined top from Lucia Zolea is the best piece of her’s that money (but not too much of it) can buy right now.
Just to say this collage is the dream travel fit, starting with a vintage Halson solid perfume, whose Elsa Peretti-designed compact also holds a small mirror and is threaded on a skinny chain for easy, neck-dangling access; Rimowa, though its competitors occasionally nip at its heels with coveted features, remains the big boss of luxury travel gear—this carry-on is the best deal you’ll find on resale or otherwise right now; as much as I appreciate the democratic stance of the usually $100 Nike Air Rift that gets rediscovered only to sell out again each summer, I still get caught up obsessing over archive styles like this this svelte rubber sandal version or these contrast-stitch sneakers; a well-weathered pair of vintage Levi’s now apparently costs upward of $300, which is honestly crazy when you can find pairs like this from Marithe Francois Girbaud that are just $80 and a lot more storied among vehement brand collectors; and I’ll leave you with this Lemaire bag that I mentioned last week and should probably just shut up about seeing as how I’m trying to buy it in the next week or two when some invoices get paid up, but I mean just LOOK at her!!!
