5 Designer Accessories That Always Hold Their Value

Posted by Sally Birch on

Fast fashion has taken over the world. And while it is a great way to stay ahead of the design world, it is having a tremendous impact on the planet as we know it. Though I love designer fashion, I also adore sustainability and making conscious fashion choices. After all, that's how Piggi was born. 

If you're a lover of all things designer and elegance, that's okay. You don't need to stop buying your favourite things. But, you can choose products that will withstand the test of time. 

Just some designer accessories that have proven to hold their value include: 


Chanel Bags and Accessories 

The iconic double C logo is beloved by many. So much so that the resell value of their bags can reach up to 90% of their original value. These accessories pair perfectly with all sorts of outfits, including elegant formalwear, business attire and a vintage fit. 

The power of the CC extends so far that when featured in any outfit, it can add an elegant twist. Take my upcycled Chanel designer headbands, for example. When added to even the most basic outfits, they can add a touch of class, beauty and timelessness like no other. 

Hermès Designs

Though Hermès designs don't always hold their value as well as Chanel products, their prints are known to make a comeback. Take the famous Bolduc Au Carre print. While it may have lost value for a short while, it has made a huge comeback. It's now one of the most sort-after prints on the market. 

With a range of scarves, silks, bags and accessories that consistently come back 'on-trend,' these pieces are fantastic to hold onto as they often make reappearances in the fashion world. If you do have a piece that is damaged or you aren't sure will come back in stock, you can always contact me. I will transform it into a beautiful headband or scrunchie for you. 


The Louis Vuitton Monogram 

Designed in 1896, the Louis Vuitton is loved by everyone, even those who aren't big fans of the designer world. So much so that old, vintage stock often scores a higher price than newer products. It makes holding onto your Louis Vuitton finds all the more important and shows that sometimes having one good, timeless piece is better than having multiple that will shortly end up in landfill. 

Don't forget. Like all accessories, worn out, vintage Louis Vuitton pieces can be upcycled to give them a new lease on life and keep them out of waste. 

The thing I love most about designer fashion is that it holds its value for long periods. Though new collections are released, old products can often be worn for years on end until they are no longer wearable. It makes them a great way to reduce the number of clothes you need to purchase each season. 


If you are looking for some fabulous, upcycled goodies, I am always adding new stock to my Piggi range. Check out my shop TODAY.
