Ever wanted to steal Olivia Palermo’s style? You can stop scouring Zara for super-chic separates; instead, shop straight from the wardrobes of Olivia and nine other global style icons, including Emma Watson, Lupita Nyong’o and Keira Knightley, all thanks to VestiaireCollective.com.
The celebrities have set up shop on the designer re-sale site (if you’re not addicted already, think eBay meets Selfridges) in aid of Wardrobes for Women, a charity which helps women in war-torn countries rebuild their lives. Shop and change the world at the same time? We’ll buy into that - especially these heels. See three of Olivia's items below.
Launching on December 3rd, the full list of female celebrities opening their closets includes Lena Dunham, Diane Kruger, Chloe Sevigny, Dree Hemmingway, Caroline Issa and Charlotte Dellal, as well as Olivia, Emma, Lupita and Keira.
Olivia says she is “honoured to be part of this initiative that supports women. As women we all have a responsibility to support one another”. The same goes for the rest of the inspirational women involved in the project; Keira Knightley “It's a pity when beloved clothes sit dormant in my closet, so I am thrilled to be a part of Wardrobes for Women to give these clothes a new life. These beautifully designed
garments and accessories will not just give elegance to the wearer but also support women survivors of war who are working to rebuild their lives.
We love what Lupita had to say; “If my access to beautiful goods can directly improve lives and support women in war torn countries, I'm in”. We couldn’t put it any better than Lena Dunham, though: “I've always dreamed that someone might want to shop from my closet! And for a good cause no less! These are some pieces I have loved and adored, that have made me feel chic and happy, designed by friends and loved ones. Please enjoy for women everywhere :)”.
For twelve days only, you can shop Olivia’s Topshop jackets, Tibi skirts and DVF handbags, Charlotte Olympia’s iconic flats, Emma Watson’s Derek Lam gingham dress, Keira Knightley’s Shrimps jacket and Lupita Nyongo’s Calvin Klein boots, so what are you waiting for?!
