As one of Depop’s top users, Lily Allen is a big fan of the fashion resale app and the global community that comes with it. Stylist curates the accounts you need to know about
The fashion world is obsessed with reselling, upcycling and second-hand clothes right now. It’s better for the environment, your wallet and your style to buy one-off or unique pieces from people who have carefully selected them.
One person who’s a big fan is our guest editor Lily Allen. Here are her top picks from the overwhelming world of fashion apps so you can attempt to ditch the fast-fashion for good…
The London-based designer can usually be found at Selfridges and Dover Street Market, but her newly launched Depop store features exclusive, one-off pieces. Get them while you can.
The founder of WAH Nails and the Beautystack app recently opened up her collection of designer and streetwear pieces – think brands like Supreme, Nike and Proenza Schouler.
Specialising in sustainable vintage, Jinkies Collection offers everything from ruffled blouses to checked trousers and classic Dr Martens. The plastic-free packaging is an added bonus.
The Underground Hippy
Cat-eye. Aviator. Oversized. This is where you’ll find a brimming selection of vintage sunglasses. Head there if you’re looking for those tiny, rainbow-hued pairs seen on Bella Hadid and co.
Ever kicked yourself for missing out on a pair of trainers? Sold Soles specialises in hype, sold-out styles like the Yeezy 500 and Adidas Ultraboost. Peruse for serious footwear inspiration.
Who wouldn’t want a peek inside Lily Allen’s wardrobe? Selling everything from archive Gucci to graphic T-shirts, her account is a gold mine – she even models pieces herself.
This account is home to hoards of on-trend vintage gems, like that Nineties Fendi baguette you’ve been pining for, or those monogrammed Dior tees you’ve seen all over Instagram.
Issy Doodles is about as creative as Depop gets. She hand-paints all her T-shirts, jackets and tote bags, and if you can’t find your size, drop her a message and she’ll customise your order.
