Let’s be real: not many bags age well. Poor craftsmanship and materials become obvious over time, and most brand design to trends rather than having strong looks of their own that defy them. Chanel is one of very few exceptions to that rule, and that makes the brand’s vintage and pre-owned bags all the more covetable. Today, you have a chance to scoop one up for your very own via Moda Operandi.
Because so many Chanel bags that are popular now have gone largely unchanged since their introductions in decades past, these vintage bags don’t look at all dated. Instead, a vintage Chanel bag makes you look like the lucky girl who got an awesome bag passed down for her mom. If your mother doesn’t have any Chanel to give (or is unwilling to part with hers – we wouldn’t blame her), check out some of our favorites from the Moda trunkshow below or shop the full selection (which also includes jewelry and small accessories).
