What does this mean now for the creations of Virgil abloh? Well, since they are usually not older than ten years, they are strictly not as "vintage". However, some of Abloh's drafts, especially sneakers and bags, were already traded directly after the appearance for multiple boot price on resale platforms. His first pieces of off-white are already advanced with cult items and represented in collections of fashion museums, on modern-vintage auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's they achieve maximum prices. Many of his pieces will increase significantly in the future. Because experience shows that the death of a designer or even the end of a design phase of a fashion designer affect the prices on the vintage market prices.

The turn of the Millennium was a strange time. People were getting in fistfights over Furbys while stockpiling canned food for Y2K. Although we were officially heading into the future, car manufacturers were designing cars that referenced their storied past. For some reason they thought, “It’s the year 2000, people want to drive something that […] The post The FJ Cruiser looks like a vintage SUV—and now it’s appreciating like one appeared first on Hagerty Media.
This was first showed after the murder of Gianni Versaces in 1997 in Miami. The designer had found himself on the summit of his glory. At that time there was no online portals yet and so the stationary second handhand was overrun by fans of the Italian designer brand. Only the renowned shop "Decades" in Los Angeles reported by more than 1000 requests for Versaces famous colorful silk shirts, leather jackets and the medusies decorated clothes made of older collections. Within days, prices rose by more than four times the purchase price. Similarly, it behaved after the death of Karl Lagerfeld. The Chanel Accessories and Key Pieces of the 2019 died modemaker cost today the multiple of the original price.

Harley-Davidson’s stunning vintage-inspired electric bikes are going on sale later this year
But they’re only making 650 of themThe S1 Mosh/Tribute is an homage to “Serial Number One,” the nickname for Harley-Davidson’s oldest known motorcycle built in 1903. The bike’s design, with its white tires, leather saddle and handgrips, and sleek black frame with gold lettering, harken back to that first prototype.
ALLOH, in the last ten years, shaped a whole new approach to the fashion design and has been a decade of renewal and change - much like Tom Ford in the nineties for the house Gucci. At Ford alone the finish was handled as a Gucci chief designer in 2002 to catapult his creations in the priced vintage sky.
