Humana has fast become one of Florence’s most beloved shopping destinations for all things secondhand and vintage. While the company’s reach is global, they are now expanding their efforts in the Tuscan capital following their initial Humana Vintage shop in via delle Belle Donne. June 22 marked the inauguration of the first Humana People store in Florence at via Faenza 63R.
The shop promises a well-curated yet diverse selection of pieces to choose from, satisfying just about every category of clothing, down to jewelry. With wall-to-wall selection, the brand has managed to cleverly categorize each piece, making for a breezy shopping experience. Long gone are the days of fishing through dusty racks of unpromising garments. Humana People has mastered the art of sustainably shopping secondhand without taking away from the experience of the “treasure hunt”. Shoppers need not fear their prices as they remain accessible without losing any of the quality in the selections.
Streamlining the sustainability initiative, Humana has created a line of furnishing pieces made from 100% recycled material, taking from Humana’s supply of chain, steel, plastic and wood. Along with the curated shopping experience, guests can take advantage of the repair area. In an effort to promote upcycling and finding longevity in clothes, there’s an opportunity to make small changes, finishing touches and embroidered personalizations to pieces that have been purchased in the store.
Sales revenues are used to finance the Humana People to People Federation global development projects. Just last year, over 1,400 of these projects were seen to fruition in regards to education, health protection and food safety.
