These vintage designer handbags have stood the test of time

Though we usually tend to take our fashion cues from the catwalk, as of late, it’s a celebrity-led trend that has captured our attention — the vintage designer bag revival. From the Dior Oblique canvas bag (1967) to Louis Vuitton’s Alma (1934), Hermès’ Box Calf Kelly (1978), Prada’s nylon bags (1984) and the eternally elegant Chanel 2.55 shoulder bag, everyone from Kendall Jenner to Natalie Portman and Rihanna have been drawing from the archives with the timeless totes.

A phenomenal excuse to delve into the depths of your wardrobe (or your mother’s) in the hopes of finding a forgotten treasure, or shopping the classics via the design houses themselves, it has never been more evident that good style, is eternal.
