The eternal problem of luxury handbags is that the best pieces from the best brands always disappear in a heartbeat. When those pieces are also limited edition, the problem gets even worse. Hesitate for a second, and your perfect bag might be lost forever – but it doesn’t have to be.
That’s where our friends at Portero come in. As we mentioned last week, Portero is an industry-leading source for rare, pre-owned and vintage designer handbags and accessories, and I was blown away at some of the hard-to-find things that they have available on their website, in addition to scads of ultra-covetable regular production bags like Hermes Birkins and Chanel Classic Flaps. The variety continues to impress, and “easily impressed” is not a way that most people would describe me.
We thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the rarest, hardest-to-find pieces that Portero has in its enviably inventory, and some of the things we found surprised even us. From vintage, limited edition Louis Vuitton to a number of Hermes and Chanel collector’s items, check out our favorite finds below. If you’re ready to find a treasure of your own, head straight to Portero to begin your search.
