Who doesn’t love vintage Chanel? For one it’s classic and has proven to last the test of fashion time. But what is it about owning a Chanel handbag that addicts have grown to love? I don’t have the answer for you, it’s just something about owning at least one piece (if not more!) in your collection that we all aspire to do. You will never forget your first Chanel.
And what’s great about Chanel is even if you buy a brand new one straight off store shelves or someone’s pre-loved bag, you’re still getting one fabulous classic.
And you can never go wrong with a vintage Chanel, but when it comes to eBay and authenticity you never really know. This is why I always turn to What Goes Around Comes Around, founded by college friends Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser. It’s a vintage vault and archive that houses one of the most extensive vintage fashion collections in the world. Vintage aficionados from across the globe, as well as editors, stylists, and top design teams look to WGACA Vintage for the best from fashion’s past. They know their stuff.
