Does This Start-Up Stack Up? Material Wrld Sells Closet Cast-Offs Of Fashion’s Famous Faces

Created by Jie, formerly of J.Crew, and Rie from Coach, Material Wrld is a place where second-hand-obsessed ladies and gents can make vintage shopping a really personal experience. Down the line, users will be able to create their own shop, tell anecdotes about each piece, easily ship off their purchases, and follow equally minded venders (imagine eBay without the hassle). To fete their site launch, Material Wrld has just kicked off their exclusive pop-up shop featuring closet cast-offs from Steven Alan, the DANNIJO girls, Keiko Lynn, May Kwok, and more. Sign up here to request an invite for a chance to shop the one-week sale, and click through for the goods that are currently on sale. But… will you give up your eBay addiction for Material Wrld?
  • Yes! I'm already eyeing those Chris Benz shoes from The Man Repeller...
  • Only to sell my stuff. Second-hand shopping is strictly a be-there-in-person business.
  • Only to buy things! I don't trust a middleman to sell my stuff.
  • Probably not. Anyone heard of eBay?
