Gucci and The Real Real’s Game Changing Collaboration Is Look at the Future of Fashion

On Monday, luxury consignment website The Real Real announced an exciting collaboration called the Gucci x TRR Shop. It’s exactly what it sounds like; a curated and authenticated shop full of previously-loved Gucci goods.

Seems simple, sure, but in the world of luxury bags and accessories, it’s actually pretty groundbreaking. Not only is Gucci encouraging customers to consign its used items through this program, but the brand is also incentivizing people to purchase secondhand as well. According to a press release, for every item bought or sold, they will plant one tree through the One Tree Planted program.

He’s dressed celebrities, shown at New York Fashion Week, garnered the joint 2020 LVMH Prize, and most recently presented his capsule collection with Pucci at Milan Fashion Week.
