Inside the booming Irish market for pre-loved fashion

“There is often no need to choose between affordable and luxurious when it comes to pre-loved,” states Ella De Guzman, founder of Siopaella, a boutique that specializes in second-hand Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermès accessories. One of the most well-known faces on the Irish preloved scene, Ella honed her craft in her native Canada before spotting a gap in the Irish market.

She made a bold move opening her first store in Dublin at the start of the recession, but has never looked back. “The meaning of the Irish word eile is ‘other’ so I felt the name was a perfect fit, as we represented another way to shop high-end accessories when we first opened,” Ella says.

The appetite here at home and across the globe for pre-loved investment pieces has skyrocketed since. According to The RealReal 2021 Resale Report, it is “expected to grow faster than the broader retail

REBECCA VALLANCE has spent some time dreaming. Whether it be about basking under the late afternoon Mediterranean sun (her husband is Maltese), conjuring up her next radiant retail space or conceptualising her eponymous label’s latest collection; Vallance often longs for “light and joy.” Such idealisms couldn’t be more palpable than through the pops of colour, ruffled hemlines and discreetly sexy silhouettes of her Pre-Spring 2022 range. Following a “very long lockdown” Vallance wanted to celebrate the fun and frivolity of the ’70s and ’80s — where she found a muse in Anjelica Huston, circa her glamorous supermodel days.

“These days, fashion is about fantasy. So we’re creating something that has a fantasy and a dream-like aspect,” Vallance told Harper’s BAZAAR Australia/New Zealand during the unveiling of her new Flagship Chadstone store. A particular

Here are the stories of Ms. Han and four other designers who are working to elevate unconventional materials to jewelry art.

Seoul, South Korea

“I started making jewelry with recycled cans in 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic began,” Ms. Han, 49, said in a video interview from her atelier in the Korean capital. She noted that she had been thinking about working with discarded objects for some time, but the environmental improvements that occurred during the early lockdowns — like the global decline
