This is a weekly column by Mathias Rosenzweig. Sometimes the title changes because he's like that. 

I spend a good deal of my time looking for exciting new labels and designers across the globe. I even made a column out of it on this site for a while. Fashion is an extremely fluid industry; a horde of fresh young talents graduates from top design schools across the globe each year, while existing houses and labels trade creative directors so quickly you might miss it if you blink. The constant influx of entirely new, blank-canvas designers keeps the consumers' styles diverse, helping us veer away from all buying the same things.

But let's be reala designer bag is a designer bag, honey. A new discovery is great, but nothing feels quite as good as adding a fresh Prada shoe or vintage Alaïa to your wardrobe. To me (and granted this might be rarer than for some of you), acquiring a designer piece goes beyond simply expanding your wardrobe. You're enriching it, adding a piece of commercialized art. And the truth is, with the explosive online market for vintage pieces, it's not as hard as it used to be. Check out some of my favorites, both old and new, below. Plus, make sure to come back next week for more.
