The Paris grand magasin restored a space connecting its 7th floor terrace to its iconic glass dome, replacing offices with a 650 square-meter vintage and secondhand luxury department curated by Vestiaire Collective’s former head of vintage Marie Blanchet.

The space will include a buyback program where clients can sell items for store credit, and is the biggest-ever space to be dedicated to secondhand fashion in a department store, Printemps said.

The launch of resale comes as Printemps aims to boost its environmental engagements more broadly, rolling out a scoring and labelling system to highlight more sustainable products. The glass dome adjoining the resale space is becoming a concept store dedicated to pop-up shops for circular concepts, while its prime ground-floor atrium space will host an activation from Chloé to highlight new sustainability commitments including a push to become certified as a B-corporation by the end of the year.
