Vestiaire Collective’s Most Popular Luxury Bags

Vestitaire Collective, an online platform for pre-owned luxury goods, listed its top seller bags since the platform’s launch in 2009. From over 500,000 products the so-called ‘Global Bag Exchange Index’ was created.

This ranking is interesting for everyone who wants to stay up-to-date. If you’re the type of woman who gets bored by an accessory pretty easily, this list enables you to assess the resale value of it. However, when thinking about investing in a bag, make sure to have a closer look: Even if Gucci’s Dionysus bag only reached place 25, the resale value is estimated at 84 percent of the original price.

Get ready to dream away, because here comes the top ten of the most iconic bags:
