Vestiaire Collective presents lending lounge at Skt. Petri for SS20
Curated by Alexandra Carl, Stylist and Fashion Director of RIKA magazine, Vestiaire Collective offers a lending lounge at hotel Skt. Petri consisting of a selection of outstanding pieces from Vestiaire Collective’s global wardrobe as well as beloved Danish brands such as GANNI, Stine Goya, Soulland and Brøgger. With the initiative, Vestiaire Collective aims to raise awareness of a conscious, circular approach to fashion where the lifespan of a garment is extended through resale and reuse, playing into Copenhagen Fashion Week’s shared values of sustainability.
“I’m really excited to team up with Vestiaire Collective on this initiative to improve the cycle of clothes, the longevity of designer pieces and to raise awareness to the responsibility we have. Especially as tastemakers and influencers we should embrace the opportunity to not just promote upcoming collections and pieces available for instant purchase, but actually highlight incredible existing designs as well and make them just as exciting and desirable to consumers,” states Alexandra Carl, Fashion Director RIKA magazine and curator of the lending lounge.
“We are very excited to partner with Vestiaire Collective and together strengthen the reach and impact of our shared vision of sustainability in the fashion industry. Copenhagen Fashion Week is currently on a journey to intensify our sustainability efforts — both as an event and as an industry platform, and joining forces with a pioneering and inspiring international company like Vestiaire Collective opens up for many interesting opportunities in relation to the further development of our fashion week,” states Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week.
Vestiaire Collective’s lending lounge at Skt. Petri is available by invitation only
