As the online demand for archival designer clothing continues to grow, new shops are opening to meet the demand. One new retailer in the space is called Middleman. The online store is owned and founded by Kyle J.S. Muhlfriedel and Clif Shayne and based between Los Angeles and Nashville. The site will offer a mix of consignment items as well as carefully selected rare items which release every Friday. As part of the initial push Middleman has released this editorial entitled ‘Oscar Weekend’ which highlights some of the items that will be available for sale. The editorial is photographed against the backdrop of a classic old school Hollywood Motel.
With a focus on Japanese and European designer fashion, key archival pieces from Undercover, Dior Homme, Helmut lang, Raf Simons, Martin Margiela and Rick Owens will be among the items scheduled for release this Friday on Grailed. Take a look at the full editorial below to get a better idea of the initial selection and follow Middleman on Instagram for more updates.
