Since its inception in 2009, Parisian vintage clothing company Vestiaire Collective has developed a reputation for stocking the best high-end pre-owned fashion at 30 to 70 percent off the original retail price. Out of all the designer-consignment stores online, Vestiaire is one of the few retailers where fashion insiders routinely find deals on things like impossibly hard-to-find Céline sandals or circa-2000 Margiela pieces straight off the runway. “The Vestiaire Collective community is special because you can find that coveted current-season item and the museum-quality vintage piece that inspired it, side by side on the site,” says stylist and creative consultant Kate Foley, Vestiare’s contributing fashion director.
While vintage shopping typically entails rummaging through bins or slogging through pages of shoes that aren’t your size on eBay, Vestiaire has made it even easier by introducing a new curated selection, edited by the effortlessly cool Chloë Sevigny. As an original vintage icon, Sevigny handpicked items from the Saint Laurent archives, to iconic French brands like Thierry Mugler and Hermès from Vestiaire’s catalog collection that are innovative and interesting pieces that will never go out of style.
Prices range from $75 for a Giorgio Armani silk top to $5,685 for iconic Maison Margiela heels. Scroll ahead for nine of the best picks to shop before they’re gone.

A silk shirt like this will never go out of style, and because it’s 100 percent silk by Gucci, you can wear it for the rest of your life.
