On 1stDibs, you can find the most appropriate vintage or contemporary avant garde for your needs in our varied inventory. Black is a pretty popular color, but we also have Gray, Brown, Red and more in stock now.

Making an accessory such as this has likely been a part of the legacy of many fashion designers, but those produced by Thierry Mugler, Comme des Garçons and Claude Montana are consistently popular. There aren’t many items for men if you’re seeking these accessories, as most of the options available are for women and unisex.

How Much is a Avant Garde?

The price for an avant garde starts at $65 and tops out at $400,400, and on average, selling for $851.
