Calling all nasty gals and Nelly (no not that Nelly–CHANEL) fans: Nasty Gal is currently hosting a huge assortment of vintage Chanel pieces online. Yes–it’s okay to freak out. On Monday, NG’s Marissa Klurstein teased the launch with a photo-packed blog post entitled (Almost) Vintage: Ain’t Nothing Cooler Than Vintage Chanel and since then, the Nasty Gal blog has been chock-full of behind-the-scenes details, photography, and buyer picks. Needless to say, it’s pretty insane.
Nasty Gal is currently offering a plethora of archive pieces in their Chanel-exclusive collection, entitled, rather appropriately “The Ultimate Score“. Prices range from $328–for a pair of vintage “Adaliz” pants–to $7200, for a quilted “Anouk” leather jacket. Nasty Gal’s Chanel scores include two pages of vintage clothing, handbags, accessories, jewelry, and outerwear. Need an excuse to splurge? Vintage Buyer Liz Fanczak offers:
“Chanel is a next-level label. So much Chanel is classic, like if you owned it, you’d never get rid of it in your lifetime. You’re investig a lof money in it, but you also get a return on your investment; the stuff appreciates. If you take care of it, it goes up in value. Chanel is always Chanel and it’s always really expensive and it will always be expensive. There’s something so special and classic about this brand that it rides above these fashion sea changes and never goes up or down. A Chanel bag will always be an important piece.”
…We couldn’t agree more. Props to Nasty Gal for making these iconic pieces (a liiiittle bit) more accessible!
Do you own any Chanel? Will you be indulging in any of the pieces Nasty Gal is offering?
