A well-made handbag is one which last and last… so it can give you maximum style mileage for the money you spent on it – the reason many fashion connoisseurs and bag collectors are fans of vintage luxury bags. Not only are these pre-loved pieces collectibles, they evoke a sense of history to give you that authentic retro chic edge which you simply can’t get with a completely new handbag.
Authentic vintage handbags don’t come easily and that is why collectors and bag lovers will be excited by Vintage Forward, a 40-piece collection of rare, collectible pieces curated by THE FIFTH COLLECTION, an award-winning leading vintage luxury fashion marketplace. Here are 26 handbags from the curated collection (in the gallery below) which we super love!
A selection of the Vintage Forward collection is available at cult multi-label store Manifesto from December 9. Visit the store at #02-19 Capitol Piazza, 13 Stamford Road.
