Looking for something you won't see worn by anyone else? One of the most exciting aspects of shopping designer vintage is the potential to find pieces that are truly unique - a feat that is very difficult to achieve elsewhere. I like to look for special, standout and rare pieces that really define exclusivity, such as this Rajah Shoulder Bag by Gucci. The only snag? Most of these bags are quite literally one-of-a-kind so you have to keep your wits about you - once they're gone, they really are gone!
Shopping designer vintage is not simply an investment in your wardrobe - you'll also be (very selflessly) preserving the history and legacy of iconic fashion for years to come. One of my favourite timeless treasures is this Louis Vuitton Amfar Bag from 2001, that was originally designed by Sharon Stone as part of a collection benefiting the AMFAR foundation. Needless to say, the signature monogram coated canvas and adjustable shoulder strap make this is a perennial wardrobe winner that I can't wait to bring out season after season before passing onto the next generation.
