How Covid-19 changed the resale market
Resale platforms like Depop and Poshmark are reporting an increase in sales during the global pandemic. The market was already positioned and expected to grow, but amid worldwide lockdowns, an economic slowdown and changing consumer habits, secondhand shopping is becoming more appealing to both shoppers looking for more affordable alternatives and brands wanting to offload unsold inventory. {Business of Fashion}

Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli talks designing couture from quarantine
For Vogue's June/July portfolio, Hamish Bowles spoke to Pierpaolo Piccioli about how his life and workflow have shifted while he and his team self-isolate. The designer revealed he's still working on Valentino's upcoming Haute Couture collection, but that it might take a different form once it's unveiled. "I am working on couture, of course, and I hope that I'll be able to do the collection," Piccioli said. "But I'm thinking of presenting in a different way, and so I'll also work in a different way. Now, of course, the runway is not going to be possible, but I don't want to skip the collection; I want to do it with a different medium." {Vogue}
