Next month, Perth fashion fiends will have the opportunity to unearth rare pieces from the wardrobes of Dilettante’s most stylish clientele.
The boutique has been at the forefront of Perth fashion since opening back in 2007, stocking a selection of boundary-pushing designers that includes Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood, Maison Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garçons, Undercover, Issey Miyake, Acne Studios, Anne Valerie Hash, AF Vandervorst, Yang Li, and many more.
This one-of-a-kind market, Dilettante Circle, is designed to foster sustainable fashion practices – and will feature a wide-ranging collection of archival pieces within the stylish Claremont flagship store.
Breathing new life into timeless, meticulously-crafted clothing, accessories and footwear, this is not your average wardrobe clear out – while there are over 700 pieces anticipated for this year’s sale, all have been curated and vetted by the expert eye of Dilettante’s staff.
“Last year, we had a few special runway pieces from [Japanese fashion brand] Undercover and a beautiful silver Rick Owens suede jacket. Not to mention a vast array of chic Dries Van Noten dresses, some menswear options and plenty of gender-fluid garments,” says Dilettante Director and Buyer Diana Paolucci.
“Last year we had over 850 items and in 2021 there were just over 500. We are aiming for somewhere in between this year, so we can be more selective with the pieces on offer.”
For the first time, the sale will also take place over two days.
“With a lot of rare and one-off pieces, it can take some time to explore everything that’s on offer and find those special items that have your name on them.”
Running from 11:00AM to 4:00PM on Sunday, June 11 and Monday, June 12, both regular clients and design-loving newcomers are invited to submit contributions of both Dilettante-stocked designers or equivalent luxury brands from today until Friday, June 9. You can find more information on how to submit garments on the Dilettante Circle website here.
“Giving people the chance to pass on quality items that may not have a place in their wardrobes anymore encourages circular fashion practices and highlights how timeless these pieces are.”
