These days, getting good at Depop is inching closer to the top of the list of things we want to achieve in 2020. Some people just seem to have a natural knack for uncovering iconique pre-loved designer pieces, pairing them with cute handmade Y2K accessories and accumulating thousands of followers to flog their old Topshop Joni jeans to. Gen Z, we’re taking all the tips you’ve got. But until then, join us at “Re/Sourced”, a pop-up hosted by Depop and Ralph Lauren, where the whole collection has been meticulously curated and all the hard work is done for us.
Launching tomorrow at Ralph Lauren’s New Bond Street store, “Re/Sourced” will house over 150 pieces sourced by Depop sellers, including rare vintage and archival pieces ranging from the brand’s more preppy looks to streetwear and Polo Sport.
Promoting a slower, more sustainable approach to buying clothes, Ralph Lauren has enlisted digital docu-film maker Mura to capture the stories behind the pieces and those involved in the project. Focusing on three Depop sellers, the film looks into the life cycles of the items they source and spotlights the significance of choosing second-hand.
The “Re/Sourced” collection will be available for purchase exclusively at the Ralph Lauren New Bond Street flagship store in London, from October 22nd through ’til November 7th.
