I Went to Brand Collect in Harajuku for some Second Hand Luxury (Window) Shopping

One of the better curation of 2nd hand luxury items I've seen so far.

Tokyo is a haven for 2nd hand shopping and when it’s 2nd hand luxury items you’re on the lookout for, Tokyo’s many shops will leave your spoiled for choices.

I went to Brand Collect’s Harajuku store just along the corner of Takeshita Street and just to see what’s in store and I was not disappointed at all by their selections.

They were running a 30% off sale when I went so I was even more excited looking at their stuff – they had a sale on Moncler, Balenciaga, Burberry, Celine and high fashion brands such as Deuxieme Classe, Enfold, Loewe, and Drawer.

They also had 30% off on sacai, Maison Margiela, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, and luxury street wear brands Supreme, Off-White, A Bathing Ape, and Canada Goose.

Longtime mainstays Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Hermès, Celine, Gucci, and Fendi weren’t on the deal though, but all in all Brand Connect Harajuku really had a great collection of carefully curated clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories in their store, with some luxury brands you’ll see and hear for the first time that are worth checking out.

Their Harajuku store which is located in the second floor is not big – in fact it’s tiny in a good way because all you see are very well curated items that are in pristine condition – you can tell that they had no space to waste on random second hand items so they just have enough space to show their best items. This is great because I didn’t have to scour through a bunch of tattered items to find the needle in a haystack (like in other stores) because almost all their items are worth checking out.

What I really liked about their collection is that the stuff I saw were really fashionable and had that vintage and very ‘street wear’ vibe yet screams high end – what luxury item would you wear if you were to walk around the streets of Harajuku or Shibuya? The stuff you imagined, you probably could find here at Brand Collect’s Harajuku (Takeshita Street) store.

A lot of the items are so trendy and are true to the Harajuku spirit of fashion and I think this store has some of the better curation of 2nd hand luxury items I’ve seen so far, so I think it’s worth a visit especially if you’re into treasure hunting for vintage / luxury clothes and you’re in Harajuku anyway.

And of course, no second hand luxury clothing and bags store is complete without some helping of Louis Vuitton. 😉

As for the price – although they’re a Tax Free shop which is already a big plus for tourists, they’re still pretty expensive considering they’re selling 2nd hand items, but I understand that it’s all about the curation and they make sure that they select only the trendiest and poshest items in their best condition in their collection, that’s why their items are more on the more expensive side so I suggest you follow Brand Collect’s Instagram page to find out when their next sale will be (I’ll also try to post on my Tokyo Deals page if I ever find out about an upcoming sale 😉 ). They also have their own website brandcollect.com so be sure to check it out.

Brand Collect has a total of 5 stores, all in Tokyo:

  • Shibuya, Hiroo, Azabu-Juban, Omotesando (Nodera Building), and Omotesando 2 (Flats Omotesando): – if you’re looking for more high-end luxury fashion / high-fashion, these are where you need to go.
  • Harajuku (Takeshita Street) and Harajuku (Jingumae) – go here if you’re pretty much into high-end street wear and vintage items.

Interestingly, they don’t have a Shimokitazawa store – Shimokitazawa is one of the best place to go to for second hand clothes shopping and instead they’ve focused on the poshest and trendiest areas of Tokyo (Shibuya, Harajuku, and Omotesando). Maybe because Shimokitazawa is known for thrift shopping and Brand Collect is not thrift at all? I’m not sure but if you’re into getting second hand luxury items, then definitely check out Brand Collect on top of the other places in Tokyo because it’s worth a visit. 😉
