It may happen that we serve the craziest reasons, to justify our expensive achievements before us, to protect us from the bad conscience or self protection reasons, so that we’re not right back moving next week, if the wallet is exceptionally loose. Rewards of any kind may be or gifts for many different occasions, we only make us even – quite rare, but selected for it. Who appreciate fashion by heart, who knows at this point maybe, what I am talking about – and who used to like investment (UN) Word. Yes, it is often smirked, if we call our high-priced purchases as an investment, I look at my selected however investment on from the past, then I am well aware that the majority of them will accompany me to a lifetime: remember because they have an insane value for me, regardless of the price, to milestones (keyword reward!) Or I adamantly maintain , that their purchase will pay off and I’m with my own judgment and possibly right market, lying.
Speaking so investment in our fashionable Cosmos of one (the Economist will see the anders), then we don’t rarely my designer pieces, whose value I hope never fades (primarily for ourselves), but remains stable or increased even in the best case. A small happiness formula is at the end while in any purchase, a quick check, however it can’t hurt – and that’s why we have vestiaire collective, the vintage designer platform today and „ second hand “ pieces with the boat caught in, to show you what investment pieces, purely economic terms, really have paid off in the past.
How exactly is now define a “fashion investment”?

Bag and shoes over vestiaire collective found & snapped: that probably never sold by me, but remain in my possession. PAH!
A study commissioned by vestiaire collective according to the 2015 in cooperation with IPSOS conducted, many respondents consider the resale value of fashion items namely very well before they make a purchase. Soso. Heart, head out? By no means!
A wise fashion investment characterized by three properties:
Quality. Up to date. Rarity.
A careful processing is a foundation not to official for a permanently high market value. Coveted article achieve a higher price, if they are still up-to-date at the time of sale – or the other way round: they were always sought after, their production but has been discontinued. We come to the next point: A limited available product is particularly popular on the resale market.
But now really worth the purchase? But it is what a shame to decide only the head. All of my personal investment purchases, the heart beat higher first and foremost. So I had to learn however schmerzlichst at Wiederverkäufen of so many Fehlkäufe that others not as valued my love for the one or the other product, as I once. Such an investment can backfire so ever: not only because I thought to share a life with these material things, but because the requested sale price seemed pretty unrealistic. You remember my black/white acne Studios plateau shoes? What were they expensive – and what was that about an inexpressible grip. Resale value? Mau.
