Did you catch the Love Island Blue Party last night? If so, did you spot that the Islanders were all wearing pre-loved fashion from eBay? If you sell clothing on eBay, take a close look because you may even have sold one of the outfits!
Taking inspiration from this year’s fashion trends – dopamine dressing, blurred lines and Y2K – the islanders have opted for satin shirts and dresses, crop tops, colour pop co-ords and cut off denim. In a first for the show, all outfits worn at the Love Island Blue Party were pre-loved. The items sourced from eBay were worn by islanders in a bid to promote more conscious fashion and to extend the life cycle of these stylish fits.
Just this year alone, eBay has seen one pre-loved fashion sale every second on eBay UK. With a fifth of Brits buying more second-hand fashion compared to two years ago – and Gen Z leading the charge – preloved is on the rise.
It’s so exciting to see the Islanders embracing their dream designer looks for the Blue Party – from Hugo Boss, to Gucci and even Herve Leger, they’re showcasing how pre-loved is a great way to get your hands on the most desirable of brands. Tuning into this year’s themes of dopamine dressing and blurred lines, the girls look incredible in everything from a midriff baring crop top, to a tailored co-ord, while the boys really do shine in every shade of blue.– Amy Bannerman, eBay’s Love Island stylist
Stand out looks at the Love Island Blue Party included fashion-forward Tasha in an OMG midriff baring combo, loved-up Luca who dressed to impress in a printed Gucci shirt, Indiyah who channeled blurred lines in her tailored, colour pop co-ord and Ekin-Su who opted to go glam in a vintage Herve Leger dress.
