Finding the Right handbags-purses-bags for You

An integral part of fashion, handbags and purses have been indispensable accessories ever since we began to carry around personal items. Level of craftsmanship, style and shape matters — from coin purses in ancient Greece to early 20th-century opera bags and onward, handbags have evolved considerably over the years to meet our needs and desires, whether or not you happen to be prioritizing functionality over a flashy exterior.

Once, a single “It” handbag ruled each fashion season. No more. Today, lovers of vintage handbags are savvier and have a wider range of shopping options. Nevertheless, classics created by the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dior and Balenciaga still rule.

“It is not a fashion bag — it is a statement bag,” says Mightychic's Debra Kent of Hermès's widely beloved accessories. “When you carry an iconic Hermès bagBirkin, Kelly, Constance — no one knows how long you have been into this culture or if you are a newbie. Your status is validated immediately.”

First released in 1997, Fendi's Baguette rose to fame along with Carrie Bradshaw, the Sex and the City character portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker. Recently, the design has seen such a resurgence in popularity that Fendi has reissued it.

They are part of design history, so owning a handbag has meaning. As New York–based fashion historian Sarah C. Byrd says, “You have made the choice to invest in this piece because you understand the value of it in the past and in the future to come.”

From a 1980s Chanel black leather quilted mini buckle bag to the rare Hermès Birkin 30cm Himalayan with diamond hardware to a range of 19th-century bags, find a rich variety of vintage and designer handbags and purses spanning numerous brands on 1stDibs — seasonal “It” designation no longer needed.

Questions About Vintage Metallic Bag
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Yes, some Fendi Bag Bugs are made out of metal, such as the belt buckles, rings and watches. Other items in the Bag Bug collection are not made out of metal, such as the purse charms that are made of real fur or the bags and wallets that are made of leather. Find a variety of Fendi accessories on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    What is considered a vintage bag may vary based on personal opinion. However, most experts agree that any handbag produced more than 50 years ago is a vintage accessory. On 1stDibs, you can find a wide range of vintage bags.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    For Chanel bags, any piece produced more than 20 years ago is considered vintage. While Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel began to design handbags during the 1920s, the 2.55, which debuted in February 1955, is an iconic vintage Chanel bag. The brand's best-known bag, the Classic Double Flap bag, includes Chanel's signature quilting and leather interlaced through a chain strap. Chanel Classic flap bags have been going strong since Karl Lagerfeld updated the beloved 2.55 handbag in the 1980s with the addition of the interlocking double Cs on the flap. Other celebrated bag styles are the Gabrielle and Boy bags. On 1stDibs, shop a large selection of vintage Chanel bags.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Depending on the bag's material, a vintage Chanel can be quite expensive. For instance, a vintage crocodile top handle bag costs around $130,000. The classic quilted leather bag is around $10,000.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    The best way to date a vintage Chanel bag depends on how old it is. For bags produced in 1986 or later, you can check the date code. By cross-checking the first two digits in the serial number with information provided by trusted online resources, you can get a rough idea of the year of production. For example, serial numbers starting with zero were produced from 1986 to 1988. If you can't find a serial number in your bag, you can enlist the services of a certified appraiser or knowledgeable dealer for assistance. Find a large selection of vintage Chanel bags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Sometimes. Whether or not a vintage Gucci bag has a serial number depends on its age. From the 1950s to the early 1970s, Gucci stamped bags with model numbers, not serial numbers. Serial numbers arrived in the late 1970s. They appeared on gold tags through the 1980s and on leather tags starting in the 1990s. Find a selection of expertly vetted Gucci bags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 3, 2023
    To tell if a Christian Dior bag is vintage, check for a date code inside. Normally, it appears on a stitched leather tag in the lining. If the date is more than 20 years old, the bag is vintage. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of Dior handbags.
  • House of CarverApril 3, 2021
    Vintage Chanel bags can vary in price and at times be worth more than new production Chanel bags. It all depends on the model, condition, age, and rarity of the bag. A vintage Chanel bag in good condition can start at $2,000 and go up to $30,000.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Several telltale signs allow you to authenticate a vintage Prada bag. Look at the logo for consistency — the Prada logo has a distinctive font, particularly the notch taken out of the “R." Fakes will often leave this detail out. All details, including patterns, fonts and stitching, should be neat and even. Prada uses the highest quality luxury leather to craft its bags, and a plastic-like smell or rough texture could indicate the bag is a fake. Find a collection of expertly-vetted Prada bags from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Yes, Louis Vuitton repairs vintage bags at all of their retail locations. Unless the product is under warranty or is defective,however, the repair will come at a price.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    An authentic Gucci bag often has a serial number stitched on a tag in the bag's interior. Gucci serial numbers don't contain letters, and any letters present in the serial number are an indication that your bag is a fake. Check the bag for any signs of messy craftsmanship — luxury goods have impeccable stitching and stray threads are a warning sign. Ensure the hardware is of good quality and not rusted or chipped. On 1stDibs, you’ll find a collection of expertly-vetted Gucci bags from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Yes, some vintage Chanel bags have real gold on their chain straps and hardware. Specifically, Chanel utilized 24-karat gold alloy plating on its pieces prior to 2008. After that, Chanel switched to a gold-tone metal that doesn't contain pure gold. Shop a selection of Chanel bags on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 29, 2020

    No, vintage Hermès Constance bags do not have serial numbers. 

  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    To tell if a Pierre Balmain vintage bag is authentic, first check the hardware. Balmain often stamped the brand name onto zipper pulls and fasteners. The lettering should appear crisp and evenly spaced. Balmain's tags changed greatly over time. Compare the ones in your bag to images of authenticated pieces available online. Shop a range of expertly vetted Pierre Balmain bags on 1stDibs.
    1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
