I Just Found the Most Amazing Shop Where You Can Buy Rare Vintage Chanel Bags

A fantasy afternoon for any handbag lover would be to spend the afternoon window shopping in Rue Cambon and Rue Saint Honoré—not to mention rummaging through incredible vintage shops which are stocked with the likes of Chanel and Dior. However I just found the next best thing, as you can shop one of the world's most famous second-hand boutiques online. The pricetags of these bags might reach dizzying heights (these are some of the most expensive and rarest handbags in the world, remember), but it does make for wonderful procrastination. Tokyo-based vintage shop Amore is often referred to as 'the world's best Chanel pre-owned store', with rare collectors pieces from iconic French fashion houses.

Amore has quite the fan club, as Kim Kardashian, Alexa Chung and Bella Hadid are on the client list according to Vogue. Amore sells many of its rare treasures online via Farfetch, however, and has just launched a collection of precious previously-owned handbags. The vintage store specialises in pieces from the '80s, '90s and '00s, which is reflected in the mix of Kelly bags, Fendi baguettes and Cartier mini bags available in the capsule.The collection is simply epic, with a beautiful red Chanel briefcase, Chanel coat of arms-embossed shoulder bag and some of the most Instagrammable Fendi baguettes we've ever seen. Keep scrolling to shop some of the rarest—and most expensive—handbags in the world.
