An expression of simple elegance and sophistication, everyone loves Chanel, the century-old French luxury brand that Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel created with such vision and audacity that it continues to bring a breath of fresh air to modern womenswear today – starting with these 6 iconic items which are the perfect second-hand Chanel finds.
One of Coco Chanel’s most genius creations, tired of big and bothersome handbags, the designer envisioned something smaller, more stylish and practical, but still feminine – and the classical flap bag was born in the 1920s. Christened as the Chanel 2.55 in 1955, it’s on every Chanel lovers’ wishlist and is, without a doubt, the brand’s pièce de résistance.
Thanks to contemporary silhouettes, beautiful and unexpected color combinations, Coco Chanel made tweed trendy again and whether it’s worn as a classical two-piece set or cleverly mixed with jeans or dress pants, any tweed piece of Chanel clothing is not only iconic, but highly coveted. Which one do you have your eye on?
Whether it’s a pair of earrings, a necklace or a head-turning brooch, Chanel jewelry is elevated simplicity that can be worn high or low, at glamorous events or even on a normal day when you’re just in need of a surprising accessory to bring that little bit of French flair to an outfit. It’s the unmistakable je ne sais quoi effect of a timeless brand, it’s the perfect second-hand Chanel investment piece.
Head to toe Chanel? Yes please! From Chanel’s avant-garde two-toned sling backs to the brand’s iconic ballerinas, slipping on a pair of Chanel flats is taking the first step towards walking away in sensational style… because the perfect pair of flats is a pair of second-hand Chanel flats. What can we say, but je t’aime!
It’s always time for Chanel… and that means it’s always time to be on the lookout for a luxurious second-hand Chanel J12 watch.

Can’t you just see how fabulous it would look on your wrist, right now?
