They have an impressive resume in the fashion industry with heavy hitters like Vogue and Self Service. Today, they run their own business – Resee – collecting rare vintage and second hand pieces. These high fashion editorial treasures are finally available on one platform.
How did Resee come about? ”Resee was born over a lunch in Paris a couple of years ago. We were talking about special items from the designer collections that we wish we had, and how amazing it would be if they were available somewhere. Since we both have a background working with fashion magazines we thought it was a great opportunity to merge editorial fashion with commerce.”
Who are you? Sabrina: ”I’ve worked as a fashion editor at Self Service magazine and as a stylist for brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Chloé.” Sofia: “I used to be at American Vogue working from both New York and Paris before starting my own business representing Condé Nast Editions (Vogue, GQ, CN Traveler) in China, India and Japan.”
Who is Resee for? ”Resee is for the modern woman that we are inspired by – we’re imagining a strong, independent, curious, ambitious and gracious woman – just as we hope that our personal style reflects. We’ve got our own personal touch, and we always want our clothes to emphasize our style, not define it.”
What is really catching your eye on right now? ”We’re very excited about all the young and up-and-coming designers right now, like J W Anderson, Jacquemus and Demna Gvasalia at Vetements. We’re looking forward to see what Demna Gvasalia will accomplish with Balenciaga.”
What are you highlighting on Resee.com this season? ”We’re really in to the bed-look, we will highlight a lot of night gowns and slip dresses using layering style techniques. The boot is a great piece for the spring season as well, you can wear it with dresses and skirts.”
What items have you noticed are sought after most? ”Raf Simons ‘Summa Cum Laude bomber jacket from 2000, 1970’s capes from Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga Aviator sunglasses from 2004 by Nicolas Ghesquière and Alaïa’s ‘Mon Coeur est à Papa’ dress from the 1990’s.”
