Aleali May is opening up the doors to her coveted closet. The stylist, designer, and model is hosting a live auction of more than 50 of her coolest, most in-demand pieces in partnership with the live-stream shopping platform NTWRK. You’ll find pieces from her personal collection as well as items from some high-profile collaborations — including some sneakers.
Aleali is saying farewell to a variety of pieces, including jackets and jeans, leisure wear, accessories, and sneakers, of course. You’ll find designers, including Chanel, Burberry, Rick Owens, Balmain, Acne Studios, and even a few luxury home goods to luxe up your space. Sizes range from S to L for clothing and size 5 to 11 for shoes. Is your new spring wardrobe just a bid or two away? You’ll have to hop on the live-stream auction to find out for sure, so set a reminder now!
Aleali has some serious fashion cred. Not only did she launch her own basics line, Mayde Worldwide, but she was also the first woman to design a unisex Air Jordan sneaker with the launch of her Satin Shadow shoe in 2017, making history while designing a hit shoe. Aleali is one of two women ever to design Nike sneakers and the first woman of Filipino descent; she has since created five designs for the brand, including the Fortune 14s and the Millennial Pink 6s. She’s also worked as a stylist with stars like Kendrick Lamar and Jaden Smith.
Aleali told Teen Vogue that she isn’t afraid to let items go but is excited for them to find new homes as she continues her personal style journey. “As I get older, I’m definitely learning my silhouette even more and tailoring my style to mirror my mental progression. And I feel that’s what personal style is about,” she shared. “I’m excited to see how I evolve and what I find next to enhance this.”
What can you expect from Aleali’s auction? It’s about more than just clothes and shoes. “For me, having this auction is a glimpse of the type of woman I am: fun, playful, detail-oriented, street and luxe. But seeing that streetwear and high-end are both luxuries,” she explained. “People like to put women in certain boxes, which shouldn’t be that way. You can create your own world through products. Showing a small gist into my personal space speaks for me and other women like myself who are down to put others on game and evolve.”
