“People have always asked if they could rent something from Decades,” says the founder and co-owner of the L.A. designer vintage and modern consignment shop, Cameron Silver. Thanks to Decades’ new partnership with Rent the Runway, now you can. Tomorrow, a limited-edition collection of vintage accessories, including Chanel cross ribbon earrings and mink designer coats, will be on offer ($100 to $350 to rent) on Renttherunway.com. “Rent the Runway’s head merchant, Derek Guillemette, and I met in Paris to scour the flea markets for amazing vintage treasures like vintage YSL minaudières and Chanel gilt and pearl necklaces,” explains Silver.
To celebrate the launch of Decades for Rent the Runway, Silver and his co-owner Christos Garkinos (who recently announced their upcoming Bravo TV show) are doing a two-day trunk show in New York. Alongside the rentable items, the temporary boutique will include a display of modern and vintage Prada and Schiaparelli pieces selected in celebration of the upcoming Costume Institute Gala, along with a selection of pre-loved Decades’ designer dresses and accessories from Christian Louboutin, Gucci, and Jimmy Choo (all available to buy). Style.com has an exclusive first look at a pair of earrings from the Decades x Rent the Runway collection, here.
