Why? Or should we say 'Y'?
Decades vintage boutique co-owner, Christos Garkinos predicts:
"I strongly believe that the makeover of the brand will increase the value of neo-vintage [from the] Tom Ford and Stefano Pilati era as well as true vintage [from the] Yves Saint Laurent era. The prior designer’s pieces become more collectible."
His partner, Cameron Silver agrees, adding:
"I think promotional logo pieces, or unusual objects, like table art, and costume jewelry that uses the YSL logo–like say, a YSL gold necklace from the nineties–will definitely increase in value."
So what are you waiting for? Go out and buy the luxury brand's old gear while they're still around and not crazy expensive!
