Chanel is a company that does not need an introduction - it is one of the most famous, covetable and respectable brands on the planet. Also, it is one of the most expensive therefore replicated brands. Sky high prices, that grow annually, long wait lists for the items and limited access to the most classic universal colours and models - all of these make it quite complicated to get a Chanel handbag of your dreams. This is where vintage and preloved stores come in very handy. But one must be careful to look out for fakes. While at Lux Second Chance we consider authenticity as our core value, we have prepared a list of signs that you should check before getting yourself a Chanel handbag in a store other than a Chanel boutique.

However, the market is so big and saturated that it is quite hard to navigate through it for those who are not familiar with it!

In order to save yourself from buying a fake Louis Vuitton handbag, we made a detailed list that will help you spot a fake!
The universe of bags and the words to describe them are so diverse and versatile that even professionals, including us at Lux Second Chance, sometimes get confused. While there is a common word “bag” that encapsulates any sack, in which you can put personal items to carry them, there are lots of other words that refer to the size, shape, function, closure and the way of carrying it. We have compiled a list that will help you to use the right words for your favourite accessory.
