Shop Designer On A Discount With These Pre-Loved Handbags

The concept of the It-bag hit the fashion collective at mass in the early 2000s, and ever since, you’d be hard-pressed to find a moment in time when there wasn’t a line of celebrities and fashion-obsessed consumers alike scrambling for the bag of the moment. Because said fan-loved handbags usually come with a designer name attached, a steep designer price is bound to follow (with the exception of the new generation It-bag from affordable luxury brand Telfar), and they aren’t notorious for being the most wallet-friendly options. Instead, shopping the designer handbag trends from pre-owned is the ultimate fashion-girl hack to enjoying the latest fashion trends, full price aside. 

While shopping vintage and pre-owned is most always bound to prove beneficial from both a sustainability and economic standpoint, it’s even better when you can do so and still shop products that feel of the moment. With so many current fashion trends rooted in nostalgia, scrolling through a curated selection of the best second-hand handbags from resale marketplaces such as Fashionphile feels almost like shopping for one that’s brand new. Then, there are newly released styles, such as Telfar’s Shopping Bag, that sell out in stores instantly, but not without used options cropping up online to rescue you from waiting out the next drop. 

Whether you’re looking for the next best option to Balenciaga’s $2,000 Le Cagole bag, your next token logomania staple, or one of Telfar’s rare colorways, the 12 handbags below are a reminder that your next buy doesn’t have to come at full price.
