Run by San Francisco native Hilary Belle Walker, Bivio was the very first fashion resale shop to see the light of day in Milan, in 2013. Everyone knows Milan for its high-end boutiques and fashion, but who says that high fashion can’t be affordable or reusable? As of some ten years ago, vintage fashion started blowing up again in Italy, and thanks to a few brick-and-mortar retro and second hand shops such as Bivio, both girls and boys were finally able to dress up in a more creative and fashionable way, and most of all affordably.
Bivio buys and resells unique clothes and accessories that come from both your grandmother’s closet and fashion bloggers’ collections: and it is always worth a visit precisely because they’ll display a stylish Gucci jacket from the 1980s as well as the latest most popular sweatshirt. Besides, Bivio does a great job in drawing loyal customers with flash sales, DJ sets and happy hours.
Apart from a renovated sense of style, Bivio’s mission is also to be sustainable, as it gives a second life to items that would otherwise be stored in boxes or thrown away, lest we forget that the fashion industry is one of the main responsible actors for pollution worldwide.
So yeah: get ready to buy, sell, swap and browse around Bivio in search for your next great outfit. As the tags here at Bivio say: this is fashion for those who have style… to sell!
