Alexander McQueen partners with Vestiaire Collective
As part of Vestiaire Collective's new Brand Approved program (available in the U.K. and France for now), Alexander McQueen will work with select clients to sell authenticated pieces from the brand — like a Fall 2006 tartan skirt by Lee McQueen and a Spring 2011 tuxedo jacket from Sarah Burton's first collection for the house — on the platform. In exchange, shoppers receive a store credit from Alexander McQueen. "Alexander McQueen is committed to a move towards circular practice, both in the design studio and in the development of new business models," CEO Emmanuel Gintzburger said, in a statement. "We are delighted to be the first house in the world to collaborate with Vestiaire Collective on its Brand Approved program and to give beautifully crafted pieces a new story." {Fashionista Inbox}
