Vestiaire Collective’s strategy for the U.S. re-commerce market is simple: Let the competition duke it out amongst one another.
The Paris-based company is focused on growing the U.S., where it currently has an office of about 10 in New York, selling European-sourced, pre-owned luxury apparel and accessories. It’s a different pitch to U.S. customers from the rest of the competitive set — such as The Real Real or Tradesy — with other online resellers sourcing their product from U.S. sellers. That’s where Vestiaire has an advantage, the company believes.
