Pandolfini's Luxury Vintage Fashion Department offers to collectors and Luxury Fashion lovers the possibility of selling and buying iconic pieces.
The Vintage Fashion department draws its costumers attention to bags and accessories of prestigious and leading international luxury fashion brands, such as Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci.

In the international market in which Pandolfini Casa d’Aste operates, the Luxury Vintage Fashion sector is inscribed in the long tradition of offering luxury goods that have always accompanied the prestige and fame of the Auction House. In fact, the excellent results achieved in its long and diverse experience, make Pandolfini a leader in the sector of luxury and exclusive items, whether it’s an auction for jewellery, antique art, or the sale of collectable items. The creation of a department entirely dedicated to vintage “objects of desire” allows us the opportunity to offer our customers unmissable opportunities for purchasing unique or rare bags, and creations designed by the most famous Maisons in the world, the origins of which can always be traced back to private collections.
In a short amount of time, the Luxury Vintage Fashion Department of Pandolfini has become an important point of reference for collectors and lovers of vintage and luxury fashion objects and accessories. With the aim of drawing the attention of its clientele to haute couture bags, fabrics, and accessories, the Department organizes biannual auctions that feature prestigious Maisons like Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, and many others as their protagonists. 

The unique character, value, and excellent quality of vintage designer objects of historic interest for the sector, are the prerogatives that push us to select the best of centuries-old Italian and international artisanal tradition for our auctions, with maximum attention on bags and evening bags, exquisite fabrics, foulards, belts, pochettes, and scarves. The sphere of interest of the Luxury Vintage Fashion Department also extends to include suitcases and garment bags, jewellery boxes, briefcases and document holders, ring clips for foulards and other accessories, to be worn, collected, or gifted. Some of the unmissable protagonists in our Pandolfini vintage auctions are the accessories of Louis Vuitton, YSL, Dior and Gucci, which include silk foulards and accessories, but above all elegant travel cases or classic bags, pochettes and suitcases. 

Among the most sought out vintage objects on the market are undoubtedly the historic Hermès bags that generate enormous interest on an international level thanks to the well-known “Kelly” models, which have become some of the most elegant and well-loved bags in the world, as well as “Birkin”, both of which are considered undisputed symbols of luxury, quality, and sophistication. At the same time, the Hermès Birkin and Kelly models have become bona fide cult objects, in addition to being recognized for their unequivocal elegance and craftmanship.

This has made vintage bags a genuine class asset, as confirmed in legitimate studies undertaken by investment agencies like Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index, which show how in recent years, vintage bags have become the best alternative investment, with strong and consistently growing results. Although the market of vintage bags is led by a number of Maisons and brands, the Hermès Birkin model dominates the high-end range of the market, with a constantly growing annual value, which cancels out any risk of depreciation. Plus, Hermès was just inserted in a small group of elite companies whose used products cost more than their new ones – especially if the bags and accessories in question are proposed in limited editions or special colors, and cannot be found on the present-day market or in the boutiques of the Maison.
Pandolfini represents your most reliable resource for purchasing vintage and rare objects, but also for the sales and valuation of a vintage bag or a luxury fashion, high fashion, or haute couture accessory that might be in your possession.

The Department is available all year round, by appointment at our offices in Florence, Rome and Milan or at home for an evaluation of precious haute couture objects.
