Used Luxury Item: Chanel Fall-winter 2019-2020 – Ready-to-Wear – www.orientpalms.c… – ©ImaxTree

Find the Chanel Fall-winter 2019-2020 – Ready-to-Wear – www.orientpalms.c… – ©ImaxTree: at The RealReal’s Radical Vision of Secondhand Luxury. The RealReal was founded, in 2011, by the entrepreneur Julie Wainwright, who was previously the C.E.O. of the video retailer Reel.com and the pet-supply company Pets.com. Her latest venture employs a team of gemologists, horologists, art curators, and brand authenticators, who can guarantee a shopper that the Hermès or Chanel handbag—or the Céline blouse, or the Fernand Léger lithograph, or the Rolex Oyster Perpetual—in her shopping cart is real. These specialists, dubbed “the RealReal Experts,” lend an aura of cognoscente seriousness to shopping, helping secondhand-luxury buyers feel as though they belong in the élite world of designer fashion. It’s the kind of experience that Wainwright recognized a retailer like Amazon couldn’t provide. “It’s really hard for them to do luxury,” Wainwright told me. “It’s really hard for them to do anything beyond mass service.”
