Rental isn't exclusive to new(ish) clothes and as big believers in a circular economy, there's nothing that brings us more joy than seeing pieces that have stood the test of time being worn again, and again, and again. This Second Hand September, we're bringing decades of timeless or re-worked joy to your wardrobes by heroing some of our favourite vintage and pre-loved lenders.
Globally renowned curator in luxury vintage jewellery, Susan Caplan and her eponymous pre-loved label is synonymous with exclusivity and authenticity. With much-coveted pieces from Chanel, Gucci, Givenchy and more, there's plenty to make any outfit just that bit more special - with a story to tell as well.
Full to the brim of whimsical and romantic dresses from eras past, Narrations LDN Vintage are rare timeless gems that really put the 'special' in special occasion dressing. This black and white polka dot dress is a firm favourite among HURR renters and it's easy to see why.
As well as a curated edit of second-hand and vintage garments, Revive also breathes new life into your own pre-loved pieces with embroidery and other reworking techniques. With a roster of rentals that includes a line-up of 50s dresses and 80s power shoulders, there's a piece for every vintage lover.
Saluto London prides itself on its edit of globally sourced treasures that belong to decades between the 1930s and 1990s. All diverted from landfill, those that have stood the test of time are left in their (perfect) existing state and those that aren't are upcycled for a second chance at life.
With over a decade of vintage curation under its belt, Magpie Vintage has long been a pioneer of a circular economy. As well as selling vintage pieces, the team creates garments from unwanted antique and vintage textiles, all remade in their East London studio, and is designed to be seasonless meaning you can enjoy them for years to come.
The surprising smash hit of 2020 is undoubtedly above-the-keyboard dressing – making ‘nice tops’ all we want to wear right now. We challenged London-based blogger and account director, India Sehmi, to curate her favourites – just add jeans (or joggers, let’s be real).
