In between finishing up your work assignments today or *whispers* procrastinating, you need to spend some time perusing Lily Allen’s designer-filled Depop. The 35-year-old London native is one of the app’s 21 million users helping to steer us away from fast fashion and towards a circular economy—in style, of course (and without breaking the bank, which is something we can all get behind). On Thursday, January 7, the British singer updated her Depop shopping page following a major closet cleanout. She took to Instagram to promote her virtual shop, where she’s selling pieces from Ganni, Comme des Garçons, Gucci, and more.
I, a thrifting enthusiast, currently have my eye on Allen’s upcycled color-blocked and cropped Helmut Lang jacket, her Saint Laurent coat, and her fabulous Prada cashmere short-sleeve sweater. Thankfully, the London resident ships overseas to appease American shoppers like me. Click through to see some of the items that are still available for purchase at the time of publishing (January 8, at 12 PM EST) via Allen’s shop.
According to posts on her Depop page, the “Smile” singer has been on the app since 2019. In October 2019, a passionate fan tweeted, “Was anybody going to tell me Lily Allen has a Depop account, or was I meant to find it myself? In the time since her shop’s launch, she’s sold 208 pieces and has a perfect five-star review.
If you’re new to Depop, it’s a peer-to-peer shopping app founded in 2011 and based in London. It’s similar to Instagram in the sense that every user’s feed is curated with items recommended to them based on their style preferences. Shoppers can interact with sellers directly by DMing them to negotiate prices and ask questions.
Allen isn’t the only star with a Depop account. Emily Ratajkowski and Chiara Ferragni also sell pieces from their own wardrobes. And thrifting connoisseur Bella Hadid frequently shops from the app’s sellers. Most recently, the model shared a photo of herself in New York City, looking as chic as ever in a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier puffer. “One of my best Depop finds is this jacket, and it will forever keep me warm,” she shared on Instagram.
