Have you been thinking about buying a designer bag? Not sure wether to buy brand new or vintage? We understand that this is is a difficult choice, and not something to think lightly of. Thats why we have put together some reasons that will help you see why Vintage is the way to go !
Fashion evolves. Some designs are fads; they come and go quickly but some designs become classics; they are still as relevant and on trend today. Vintage pieces are special because they are the original source of inspiration and here are 5 reasons why you should buy vintage:
Classic vintage bags have been around for a long time. They have steadily increased in value due to price inflation of new bags, and will continue to do so for coveted brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Hermes. For example, the iconic Chanel 2.55 classic medium flap was sold for only $220 in 1955. It sells for $4900 in 2017! We’d like to think that buying vintage is money well spent.
Let's face, it no one wants to be seen wearing the same outfit or holding the same bag. And because they don't make them anymore, their rarity means that you can be certain you won't see anyone else holding the same bag as you.
3. Part of history
Every vintage piece comes with bags of character and style. It is unique with its own story to tell – and that makes it even more special. Something that we will treasure for many years to come.
50%-70% cheaper than a brand new designer bag. Period.
Fashion in the past were made to last. It had better craftsmanship and quality that have stood the test of time and will continue to do so if well looked after. Chanel bags used to be glided in 24k gold and they don’t make em’ like that anymore.
From Hermes to Chanel each piece is one of a kind, and once you go vintage, you may never want to go back to buying new again!
So, what are you waiting for? Buy vintage.
