I've been looking forever for Vintage Chanel
By Miyakih on 12/14/2013
I've been looking forever for a decent vintage Chanel. This is the place I swear. The bags are not cheap, but they are less than retail, however, they are in PERFECT CONDITION. Really. They do not take consignments, and only deal with a dealer in Paris so everything is PERFECT as in like new condition. An incredible selection. You might find cheaper elsewhere, but you will never see the quality you see here. They guarantee authenticity of the bags and my friends also bought bags as they couldn't resist. They are beautiful. We can't wait to go to brunch and show them off.

I love this store. Original dresses by in house designer Richard Ives, the vintage paris jewelry, the chanel handbags, the chanel jewelry, the tons of vintage jewelry from paris that is very rare and the best quality. Truly a great store in New York and run by the nicest guys in New York! I love this store and stop in every time I am in New York.
Just Left a very unique boutique in New York City... Great Things Await It
By Flossiesaunders2 on 12/15/2013
i'm writing this on a plane right now. On my way to a buying trip in Shanghai and I'm going to recommend to the owners that they come to NY and take a look at how spectacularly merchandise should be presented and curated. This store is like a mini museum of treasure, presented exquisitely so as if you feel you are on a treasure hunt. Sure they have great Vintage Chanel, Incredible Japanese Designer Vintage, Hermes Watches, but then there are the hidden gems and surprises lurking about on the shelfs and the racks. I can't wait to get back to New York to pitch a story on these two wonderful gentlement and their unique vision to the London Sunday Times. Bravo.
Chanel Vintage is Superb
By Hiroki on 12/12/2013
Chanel Vintage is the best here. I saw in Japanese Elle Magazine. A famous Japanese editor is her favorite. We love this store. Many things here. From Hermes watch to Chanel to YSL handbags and Valentino. We love all the NY design as well. Very nice store. Lovely place.
the best vintage chanel handbags anywhere
By CharaJ on 9/29/2012
This store has the best vintage chanel handbags I've ever seen. Anywhere. They only get mint condition or unused vintage chanel bags from a dealer. I got one that is amazing red with gold hardware. Everyone asks me where I got it. I am so thrilled to walk around with this bag. Also, the clothes and the jewelry. Amazing. It is a very unique store. Very well curated. I love coming here whenever I am in New York. It is like no other store I've been to. Simply Divine!
Paris in NY!
By MonicaH on 10/23/2012
It's like being in the Marais in Paris! Very Tres Chic Boutique. Great selection of all types of jewelry, new clothing, vintage designer clothing. They even tend to favor french labels in jewelry and vintage. The Chanel handbags are exquisite -- I've never seen better even in Paris. Love this store. It's really great I could spend hours in there. Great soundtrack too!

Two Words in my fashion dictionary that I love: Vintage #chanel. Incredible, Amazing are the other two words that come to mind when seeing the vintage jewelry collection, the designer vintage from Paris and all the CHANEL. Amazing rare Chanel jewelry and Handbags. For any Chanelophile a Must Stop in NYC #vintage #chanel. Tweet it! :) and best of luck finding that piece. They get stuff in all the time. Great store with cool downtown vibe.
A little bit of Paris in NYC
By JaymeK on 12/14/2013
5 star. The only boutique in NY that feels like it belongs in the Marais. Authentic and beautiful condition Vintage Chanel bags and Jewelry, Incredible rare Hermes watches, Japanese Vintage carefully edited all pristine condition as well. I love Paris, but even in Paris you hardly find a store like this and the exchange rate is now horrible so it's terribly expensive. They really know what they are doing here. You read about this store in most European Magazines and European Editors love this store.

Chanel Heaven Exists and it's on the Lower East Side of NY
By katiecosta on 10/29/2013
Who knew? That such a fabulous shop would exist on the lower east side. The best selection of vintage designer wares to be seen anywhere alongside NYC designers made in NY apparel. The Chanel is crazy here. Rare and pristine, jewelry, handbags, and more jewelry from every era and Paris designs. I love shopping here Sundays after a hearty brunch on the lower east side. It's always something to see. This place used to be such a secret for fashion insiders and editors and now they are huge. One of the owners told me they are opening another store focusing on men's as well. I can't wait and neither can my husband!
