2023 Resale Report: In With The Old


Culture is increasingly about new takes on old things, whether that’s a beloved childhood toy (Barbie) or a forgotten legacy brand (Ferragamo). Just as the high-low mix defined what it meant to be thoughtfully dressed in the 2010s, pairing things from different eras and aesthetics functions as its own language now, especially among young fashion disciples. For these shoppers, being able to discover, access, and afford authentic designer and vintage pieces is a powerful tool for self-expression – one that keeps them coming back to resale. 


6 Brands Defining the Cultural Zeitgeist 

As more shoppers fill their wardrobes with resale, they’re seeking items that allow them to express their personal style and unique takes on mass market trends. This means increased interest in brands that can provide Barbiecore, stealth wealth, or celebrity-inspired looks.


Loro Piana 

The quiet luxury darling was a favorite of Succession character Kendall Roy, and is now equally popular among men and women – searches are up 36% – looking to emulate the show’s monied style. 


St. John

Long beloved by those seeking the Chanel look for (slightly) less, a partnership with celebrity stylist Karla Welch has reinvigorated this formerly stuffy brand, with searches for the brand’s classic suits and sets up 32%.



The announcement of new creative director Maxmillian Davis sparked interest in the Italian house, reminding shoppers of its iconic status and sending searches for crossbody bags up 38%.



We’re all Barbie girls in a Barbie world now, and no brand has capitalized on this more than Valentino. Sales of the brand’s signature hot pink shade are up 264% (that’s more than three times!).



A capsule collection of “pixelated” clothing plus more instantly memeable pieces like Minnie Mouse-inspired heels help explain why searches are up 59% for this once under-the-radar brand.


Miu Miu

Prada’s baby sister has gone from cool girl secret to full-blown phenomenon – searches are up 22% – thanks to 2022’s micro-mini moment and this season’s sheer skirts


How 3 Jewelers Staged a Comeback 

What does it take to make a legacy jewelry brand interesting to a new generation? Iconic designs, mass nostalgia, and a few boldface names did the trick for these three. 



Often featured in the OG SATC, this celeb-favorite brand’s beloved Serpenti style turned 75 this year, while searches for vintage pendant necklaces climbed 154%.


David Yurman 

Y2K revival shows no sign of slowing – hence why searches for Yurman’s signature silver signet rings are up 81% – but just in case, a partnership with Shawn Mendes never hurts.
