Susan Caplan is a globally renowned luxury vintage jewellery brand known for finding some of the most covetable and special pre-loved designer pieces.
In a special Susan Caplan x HURR collaboration, Susan Caplan herself has spent months curating a magical collection of statement earrings, logo pieces, and covetable collectables from Chanel and Givenchy for the HURR community. In doing so she has made accessible some of her most exclusive pieces—including the iconic and rare Chanel birdcage earrings.
We were thrilled to speak to Susan about how she carved out her impressive career in vintage jewellery, and why she chose the selection of pieces for our HURR community.
I'm a Londoner born and bred but I spent 25 years in Glasgow raising my children before we all moved back down here. I love spending time with my family and travelling—my swimsuit is already packed for when we're allowed to travel again!
I grew up in a family of design enthusiasts and they instilled in me a passion for art and antiques from a young age. When I worked as a beauty therapist on board the QEII and travelled the world, I would pick up trinkets, objects and jewellery everywhere I went. I still have some of them today. I became an antiques dealer and for 30 years travelled all over the country to fairs. In 2008 I introduced vintage jewellery to luxury UK department stores and the rest, as they say, is history.
Without giving too much away I will say that my love for travelling doesn't just extend to holidays. I travel the world for my collections and have spent the last 40 years building my supplier networks.
A breathtaking and eclectic range of luxury jewels including Dior and Chanel—all from different eras and all showing extraordinary attention to detail. Timeless, classic, quirky and unique. There is something quite magical about these pieces with a past.
Sustainability has, rightly so, increasingly dominated the fashion landscape. HURR are at the forefront of the rental sphere, leading the way for others to follow. It's the perfect fit for my collections which have always challenged the status quo of the second hand resale market.
I have no favourite - Love them all!
Yes, you read that right. In a bid to become a completely circular and climate-positive business by 2030, the mega Swedish furniture retailer are stepping into notions of sustainability just in time for Black Friday – offering to buy back customers' unwanted IKEA pieces for up to 50% of the original price.
