What is it?
Pelle is Sydney’s first consignment shop that specialises in salvaging designer and luxury clothing labels. For Monica Schnieper, owner and founder, Pelle is more than a boutique shop. More so, Pelle is her personal endeavor to promote sustainable and intentional consumerism. Designer fashion and intentional consumerism are a match made in heaven, and at Pelle, you will find pieces from Alexander McQueen, Céline, Christian Louboutin, Prada, Fendi, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent all at a fraction of the cost.
What makes it unique?
Not only does the Pelle team look designer, but they also talk designer–my favorite language. Every week, Pelle picks an item of the week. Alongside the professional photography capturing these beautiful items, the team publishes a brief synopsis of the piece and unique history of the designer. This week’s post consisted of a sexy pair of black, studded Louboutin booties. If you are interested in reading their blog, you can check it out here. The blog is also a great way to preview the kinds of items they have in the shop and will also keep you informed of any upcoming sales. Yes, they have deals!
How do I get it in my life?
Pelle is located in Sydney’s most fashionable district, Paddington, at 90 William Street. However, if you don’t feel like getting up off your couch, you can order online! Are you ready ladies?
What’s the #insidertip?
Unlike most consignment shops, Pelle asserts its attention to the details of a person’s wardrobe like shoes, handbags, and accessories. Although Pelle offers an extensive stock of clothing, the lovely Monica says it is due to her former education as a shoemaker and repairer that influenced the focus of her energy on recycling shoes and other accessories. Monica’s expertise and impeccable taste have made Pelle the finest destination in Sydney for sparkly, little bargains! If you want to accessorise like a #queen on a budget, visit Pelle, and don’t forget every item is a one-off. As Monica says, don’t procrastinate the shopping decisions because nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy (the most real thing I have heard all week).
