Sustainable Fashion at Bis Solidaire, Paris: Our Love Affair with Vintage.

Why Secondhand is the New Black

“New is ok, but vintage is where it’s at!” That’s our motto when it comes to fashion. In a world where fast fashion dominates, we’ve found our sanctuary in the timeless aisles of secondhand stores like Bis Solidaire. Here’s why:

Quality Over Quantity

Secondhand shopping isn’t just about finding unique pieces; it’s about investing in quality. Those well-crafted garments from yesteryears? They’ve stood the test of time. We’re talking about clothes that don’t just fall apart after three washes. Bis Solidaire is a treasure trove of such gems – each piece tells a story, and honey, we’re here to listen!

Fashion with a Conscience

Let’s talk real – the fashion industry isn’t exactly the poster child for environmental sustainability. But by choosing secondhand, we’re reducing waste and saying no to the fast fashion cycle. It’s our stylish way of giving Mother Earth a high-five.

Unique Finds for Unique Minds

Walking into Bis Solidaire is like stepping into a world where every piece has its own character. Forget cookie-cutter trends; this is where your personal style shines. It’s like fashion roulette, but you always win.

Bis Solidaire: More Than Just a Store

Nestled in the heart of Paris, Bis Solidaire isn’t your average thrift store. It’s a fashionista’s dream and an eco-friendly shopper’s haven.

A Melting Pot of Styles

From vintage Chanel to boho chic, Bis Solidaire offers a variety of styles. It’s like a fashion time machine, and every visit is a new adventure. Will it be ’70s disco or ’90s grunge today? Only the fashion gods know!

Sustainability in Every Stitch

Every purchase at Bis Solidaire is a step towards a more sustainable future. They’re not just selling clothes; they’re promoting a different way of consuming fashion. A world where fashion can be responsible, eco-conscious, and oh-so chic! Every piece is chosen, washed and ironed. You can find a lot of high-end brands for small prices! We found this Chanel scarf for €60.

Community at Its Heart

What we adore about Bis Solidaire is its commitment to the community. It’s not just about clothes; it’s about creating opportunities and fostering a sustainable environment. Besides partaking in different social projects to support local communities, Bis Solidaire employs people who would otherwise have a hard time accessing the job market. Their unsold goods are donated to local associations to help those who are less fortunate.

Making Sustainable Fashion Accessible

“Expensive taste on a thrifty budget” – that’s our shopping mantra. Bis Solidaire makes sustainable fashion accessible to all. Every week Bis Solidaire receives new deliveries of 7000 garments! This ensures that their collections are continuously rotating but the reasonable prices stay the same. You don’t have to break the bank to be stylish and eco-friendly. It’s a win-win in our books!
