Louis Vuitton 1998 Concorde from Designer Archives
While I love my Louis Vuitton Neverfull– so much so it barely leaves my shoulder, my current adoration is for my new, vintage Louis Vuitton Concorde handbag. This particular bag was lovingly made in France, in March of 1998, meaning it is just one year older than me! This goes to show that not only is it a highly durable bag, a result of its high quality canvas structure, but it is also a rare collectable. I think I can safely say there are very few of these walking around in 2013 … don’t I just feel a bit special!
While a few of these are available via Ebay, I purchased this from my favourite little luxury resellers, Designer Archives. Located in the Wintergarden, Designer Archives is a treasure trove of preloved designer pieces, stocking highly exclusive pieces embedded with a wealth of history and 100% authenticity – (definitely an ease of mind knowing you are buying from a reputable source). With each visit I find something fabulous for value; a Chanel purse, Giuseppe Zanotti crystallised boots, Jimmy Choo’s straight from the runway- it’s an economic saving for a lifelong investment!
With a structured, mini brief-case form and classic monochrome print, this beautiful creation presents a timeless piece! I love it’s potential versatility as both a day and night accessory. A little styling project for my upcoming mid semester break… Stay tuned for it’s first adventure.
