Marie Blanchet joined VestiaireCollective.com, the French go-to site for ‘pre-loved’ luxury fashion two years ago, and has been making Paris a bit chicer everBeloved by Parisian fashion girls since day one, Vestiaire is the place to buy key items you may have missed from a few seasons ago. Now, thanks to Blanchet, it is also the place to buy amazing quality pieces from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. As their head of vintage, she curates a selection of pieces, from the timeless, to the ‘originals’ of what is currently on the runways. She’s drawn to anything Victorian; the 30s, as that was truly when society started to go from covering up the woman’s body to showing it; and the 60s and 70s, especially the heyday of master himself, Yves Saint Laurent. Here, a look at Blanchet’s own, covetable style.
