What are the sure values for a real fashionista?

What Are The Must Have Bags?

This question is vast, given the extremely fluctuating trends, the internationalization of customers, and therefore the demand, and especially the parades, successful or not …

But as a general rule there are certain values which, it seems, have the capacity to transcend time and tendencies.

In an article in Elle Mag, the recommendations are simple. I leave you to take notice:

6 Handbags Worth Investing In
Classics that are worth the wait list.
The fashion world often talks about ‘investment pieces’, the things that will supposedly see you through a lifetime of wardrobe changes and style crises.

The one place where that certainly holds true? A handbag. A well-chosen one really can last you forever, and even become a valuable heirloom to be passed down in the family.

Here, we round up the bags that are really worth pumping your hard-earned, hard-saved money into—six classics you’ll have for life.

  1. Céline Box Bag

Ever since Phoebe Philo took the reins at Céline in 2008, everything from the brand elicits an immediate want-need-now feeling.

Philo and Céline’s former head of accessories Johnny Coca—now creative director at Mulberry— created a plethora of instant ‘it bags’, but none more so than the beautifully minimalistic Box Bag.

It debuted in 2011 and is an update on a much-loved bag from the Céline archives. The most notable changes from the original are the clasp, a simple rectangular gold clasp replaces the horse-and-carriage metal clasp that represented the brand’s former logo, and the flap has been lengthened.

The perfect size for an everyday bag, it fits all your essentials and can be worn cross-body, as a clutch or as a shoulder bag.

Available every season in a variety of colors and leathers, it comes in two sizes, small and medium, and retails from $3,900 up.

    2.  Chanel Classic Flap Bag

Meet the ultimate investment bag.

Not to be confused with the brand’s 2.55 bag (the iconic bag designed by Coco Chanel in February 1955) the Classic Flap is Karl Lagefeld’s contemporary take on Coco’s original 2.55, but has become just as, if not more, iconic as its predecessor.

What are the differences? The Classic Flap has the iconic interlocking CCs clasp and chain strap interwoven with leather, while the 2.55 has a rectangular ‘Mademoiselle’ clasp and all metal strap.

Available in four sizes—small, medium/large, jumbo and maxi—buying the Classic Flap is one of the most reliable investments you could make. Proof? Baghunter reports that since 2010 the value of the bag has increased by an incredible 70 per cent.

$4,700 will get you the small in classic black ‘caviar’ leather, while you’ll need to stretch your budget to just over $6,000 for the maxi.


 3. Christian Dior Lady Dior Bag
The Lady Dior was created in 1994 with the sole purpose of becoming a classic—succeeding with the help of Princess Diana.
Originally named ‘chouchou’ (French for ‘favorite’), it was given it’s current moniker as a tribute to the princess (who was known as Lady Diana Spencer before her marriage) in 1996 after she fell in love with it. She faithfully carried it for years.

It’s key attributes are its ‘cannage’ topstitching, described by Dior as ‘a network of lines stitched vertically and diagonally create a precise harmony from which cushions of quilted leather emerge like a scattering of shimmering, faceted diamonds’, and it’s D,I,O,R charms, which hang from the top handle.

Available in a variety of colours and fabrics each season (it’s also worth scouring eBay for vintage models), and in mini, standard and large sizes, prices start at $2,950 for the smallest.

      4.  Hermes Kelly bag
You probably expected to see the iconic Hermes Birkin on this list—and that would indeed be justified. But we think the French fashion house’s Kelly style is in fact the true investment bag.

The Kelly hasn’t enjoyed quite the level of overexposure as its label-mate, meaning its altogether more understated look and cleaner lines seems as fresh today as they did in the 1930s, when it was first created.

Known initially as the Sac à dépêches, it was renamed the Kelly in homage to Grace Kelly, a life-long fan of the style who famously used it to shield her first pregnancy from the ever-present paparazzi.

Each bag takes artisans up to 25 hours to create, making it (unfortunately) as hard to get hold of as a Birkin. Prices start around $8, 400, but a Kelly (or Birkin) is a proven investment, it will only increase in value thanks to its exclusivity and rareness.

      5. Prada Saffiano Bag
Better known as the Saffiano Lux bag, this bag is named after the leather from which it’s made, first created and patented by Mario Prada, founder of the brand and grandfather of its current Creative Director Miuccia Prada.

The heat-treated leather is embossed with a cross-hatch pattern that increases durability, scratch-resistance, and water-resistance.

Loved for its roomy interior and simple, suitable-for-work design, it has become a true classic over the last decade.

Available in a variety of sizes, starting at $1, 290.

 6. Fendi Peekaboo Bag
Though the Peekaboo debuted in 2009, it was about five years later that its popularity really peaked.

Named after the childhood game, the Peekaboo’s defining feature is its easy-to-open and close side ‘pouch’, secured by a central clasp at the top of the bag, that allows you to quickly access all your essentials without having to delve around in its roomy inner compartment.

Said pouch often has a statement lining that ‘peeks’ through when the clasp is left undone.

Designed by Fendi’s Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld and available in micro, mini, regular and large, prices start at $1, 550.

Here is a short summary in pictures

Why should we buy a Chanel Bag?

Why should we buy a Chanel bag?

According to us, DVL, we must invest smartly in fashion. There are pieces that never go out of fashion, timeless styles (as Coco Chanel repeated, “Fashion is always out of style, style never”), and the Chanel bag is a fundamental basis of wardrobe.

The Chanel bag is a sure bet. For a fortnight. Continuously in the midst of a stylistic revolution, offering new models that fit into fashion standards, the Chanel accessory is an emblem of any fashionita. Existing in many different versions, from qualities of leather to exotic, from rare or embroidered pieces, each woman can find herself in a Chanel model.

Particularly, the Classic Timeless bag. This bag has seen its price climb by more than 100%, propelling it from the 80’s from a benchmark price of 180 € to more than 4000 € now. You can imagine the added value!

More than a social reference, it is a fashion icon. In an article in Elle Mag USA, here is how we perceive this financial investment:

The story of success

It is no coincidence that the Chanel accessories have become icons of French and international fashion. Every woman in the world has one day been inspired by the camellia, on our site we regularly mention the news of the Maison Chanel. You can follow them by subscribing to our social networking pages, which you will find on the homepage of the site.

Thus, we realize video spots, featuring the codes of the House, embellished with all the items that we have proposed, or still propose. Our proposal strength is vast, from PAP to the smallest accessory.

Discover this video below, which explains why owning a Chanel object is the symbol of a whole story. Because for us, DVL, explain the origin and the spirit of each object allows you to better understand the intrinsic value of it. So a bag is no longer a bag, but a story all by itself.

What is a consignment store?

What is a consignment store?

It’s a new way to buy smart. Appeared late in the 90s, the system of reselling its items that no longer use began to take off.

In the past, there were the traditional sales halls, where there was a shrouded legacy, with a plethora of items, from furniture to the grandmother’s dressing gown!

More glamorous appeared stores, proposing to channel the proposals, and especially simplifying the process of sales halls. Easier to move to a store counter than to take several appointments with an auctioneer. Especially since good professionals, formerly experienced in their sector of activity, are quite able to appraise the objects.

Thus, shops have appeared, each with its own specificity, enabling individuals to resell their items with confidence. The articles proposed correspond to the seasons and the news of the fashion (for our part).

At DVL), we guarantee the regular origin of these products by contract with the depositor recorded on Police book. We give each buyer an invoice in lieu of a certificate of authenticity, and guarantee the product you buy for life.

The expertise of these products was made beforehand, before being put on sale, by our care, within the limits of our field of expertise, by also using the sworn experts of the auction rooms (Drouot, Artcurial), or even Dedicated service of Houses, when it is accessible.

We have existed for more than 20 years

Our first boutique was born in the 16th arrondissement, has grown over time, bringing together women’s ready-to-wear, bags, accessories, jewelry and watchmaking.

Our notoriety has been built over time, by rigor in our selection of products, accuracy in the quotation of articles, honesty both with our depositors and our buyers.

We try to offer the best service that a Maison de Couture can offer you, in all simplicity.

How are prices fixed?

With the emergence of sales deposits and resale platforms between girlfriends, the cards have been turned down in the right direction. Differences, with equal produce, could be found from one trade to another.

The diffusion on the net of this trade has allowed a quick information of the consumer, more savvy, and to smooth out the somewhat wacky claims of some towards a return to a coherent market of the second hand.

A rating index has resulted, allowing a more readable reading between professionals, and above all a clear information of the consumer. A kind of argus.

At DVL, we have endeavored to maintain the price of reason in resale second hand. It was not always easy, because customers, blinded by the price of the net, did not understand why we refused, as a store, to accept unreasonable resale prices.

We have always insisted on practicing our profession in absolute price coherence. This is why you will find in store and online always products of excellent quality at a price quite affordable.
