With a line wrapped around the corner, Hypebeast Flea New York gathered the best of NYC’s local creative community in Brooklyn at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse this past weekend. Community-driven resale marketplace Depop and Hypebeast came together to celebrate NYC’s creative scene and spotlight the secondhand curated selections of Depop’s biggest sellers. Melodic vibes courtesy of the Sundae Sauuce team brought the energy as vendors OnSeam, 20XX, Maya Traber, Lal Vintage, Vintage Vin and Zemi Star showcased their one-of-a-kind stock of vintage goods.

From festival fashions and aughts-derived accessories to sporty streetwear silhouettes and statement styles from high-end heritage brands, each Depop vendor displayed their personal fashion expression through their curated on-site collections. Over 6,000+ attendees explored the weekend-long experiential event, grabbing small bites and beverages from Modelo and local food spots while playing a Depop x Hypebeast co-branded claw machine to win custom Depop-sourced merch,  experimented with their own style sensibilities by rummaging through the racks of Depop’s finest resellers for their next unique fashion find.

Throughout the event, the sellers detailed their approach to sourcing secondhand fashion, the intricacies behind each pre-loved piece and their intentions going into the IRL event. From Abigail Sciarra and Zach Moore of OnSeam to Julian Binder of 20xx, the vendors introduced their style identities and niche aesthetics to the notable attendees of Hypebeast Flea New York.

Giving a glimpse into their vintage sourcing skills, the OnSeam team prioritized rare racks of clothing for the curated market. “We wanted to bring hard to find pieces for [Hypebeast Flea New York],” they shared. “We love statement pieces and wanted very detailed and cool pieces like our Betty Boop jacket for the event.” Along with the vintage varsity jacket, the duo delivered high-quality leather and suede goods, including Nascar racing jackets and Coach shoulder bags available at their booth.

For Julian Binder, his stock of secondhand fashion is all about giving wearers “a little spark of joy in their everyday looks.” With classic knitwear pieces and pointed-toe boots fresh from Europe and Japan, he accomplished just that. In addition to his heritage brand items, including a Miu Miu sundress, the Brooklyn-based vintage curator compiled funky jewelry, including puzzle-shaped necklaces from Biche de Bere and colorful, bold bracelets from Blumarine for the weekend.

Sezan Turan, the brains behind Lal Vintage, curated a blast from the past with all-new selections of nostalgic noughties wear for Hypebeast Flea New York. Just in time for the summer, the seller provided sultry, striking sandals from Miss Sixty and Gucci, along with Galliano-era Dior bikinis, that pair perfectly with her stylish clear sunnies from Chanel. Although the vintage enthusiast typically focuses on womenswear, she expanded her robust range to incorporate menswear for the event.

In a similar vein, Maya Traber – who typically sells flirty, feminine fashions perfect for festival season – dipped her toe into menswear. With a finger on the pulse of on-trend fashion, Maya brought fan-favorite brands such as Carhartt, Timberland, Jeffrey Campbell, Levi’s, House of Sunny and Diesel to Hypebeast Flea New York. The Depop vendor ventured into contemporary style trends, such as cowboy-core, with western boots, dainty lace clothing and cut-off shorts at her booth.

For the style savants with a sporty flair for fashion, Zemi Star and Vintage Vin helped bridge the gap between sport and style over the weekend. The former, a Bushwick native, has a penchant for sportswear – and jewelry – started designing and reconstructing basketball shorts through their own lens to redefine masculinity. “I’m trans and from Brooklyn” they share. “I’ve always seen these different masculine archetypes growing up in music videos and in the people from my neighborhood and this was my opportunity to go back into those archives and make my version of that in today’s world.”

In a booth not far off from Zemi Star, Vintage Vin had his own supply of sports-derived pieces. From A.C. Milan soccer club scarves to jerseys, he stayed true to his personal style preferences. Along with the sportswear, he had mid-2000s inspired silhouettes including jorts, Ed Hardy denim and oversized tees.
