The Vestiaire Collective x Jessica Alba collaboration was a great move for both parties and for the lucky early birds who shopped the results of the collaboration at VestiaireCollective.com. Jessica Alba is working with Baby2Baby to provide children with every day essentials in areas, where they do not always have access to them.
So Jessica Alba pulled some great, stunning pieces from her closet and teamed up with Vestiaire Collective, a great luxury retail site, to sell these 27 pieces. Even better, 100 percent of the proceeds (everything sold!) went to Baby2Baby on November 15th, 2016.
Everything Jessica Alba has provided has already sold out, however, she did make certain to provide elegant and beautiful options so that is no surprise. She was very clear that the goal for her was to make a difference.
Jessica Alba has been quoted saying: “I got involved in Baby2Baby basically when I became a mother. I looked around, and not only did I start a company that gives back and makes responsible, ethical products, but I also really wanted that giveback to be tangible. What I love about the work that Baby2Baby does is it provides everyday essentials for families in underserved communities.”
This was an extremely successful venture for the non-profit, Vestaire Collective and Jessica Alba, showing that when she pushes to help an organization, the results will be success all the way around. Pieces that were chosen included her dress from the 2013 Met Gala – a laser-cut, black leather Tory Burch dress and a mid-length black and white printed Versace dress.
She even included a set of Brian Atwood sandals and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. Although she was happy to do it and chose the pieces with care for the collective, she was clear that it wasn’t difficult to do.
The very mindset to give back that Jessica Alba has exhibited led her to choose some of the best pieces she had. She was very clear that it wasn’t too hard by saying, “I also think it’s important to not be too attached to those more trendy items and switch them out.”
She goes on to say: “And that’s why I think Vestiaire is such a great place because it allows you to have fun, indulge in those more fun trend-oriented pieces and then you can, you know, move on and shop more. That way you kind of stay on trend for the season but you also have a consistent wardrobe that you can rely on.”
As a concept, this is a great statement, and considering the success of the collective it was a great idea all the way around.
