    We’re always down for a chance to peek into a covetable closet — especially when the lovely loot is up for grabs. But, we have yet to come across one as enticing as this. Our adoration for stellar sounds and shopping intersect at Oakland outpost Mercy Vintage Now’s once-in-a-lifetime offering: The chance to buy Kim Gordon’s (yes, of Sonic Youth fame) dreamy duds.

    The ‘90s musical (and fashion) icon-slash-artist is no stranger to the style scene (she even has a Surface To Air and Marni collab under her presumably badass belt) and owns an incredible heap of rare, vintage finds. Luckily, come Saturday, September 1, you can own select items from the star’s collection — some even donned on stage and in Sonic Youth vids!

    The online lot ranges from vintage Prada, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, and more — all vying for a spot in your wardrobe. Want to get in on the action beforehand? Well, we’ve got an inside glimpse at the garb — plus 15 tickets to a private event where you can shop Kim’s clothes pre-sale. Oh, and did we mention she will actually be at the Refinery29 co-sponsored party herself — alongside treats from Camino and a curated playlist from the indie-rock goddess! All you have to do is tell us what your ultimate on-stage ensemble would be for the chance to rub elbows and snatch up Gordon’s sartorial goodies.

    When: Online sale begins Saturday, September 1, 8 a.m.; Event, Friday, August 31, 6 to 8 p.m.
    Where: Mercy Vintage Now, 4188 Piedmont Avenue (between Linda and Ridgeway avenues); 510-654-5599. Invite only.
