Part 3: 2015 Reissue vs Vintage Diana

Part 3: 2015 Reissue vs Vintage Diana

As Chanel often does, it brings back old designs seasonally. A lot of new "seasonal" styles as we see in the latest seasonal shows are often recycled from decades ago, but unless you there is an encyclopaedia of vintage styles, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly which year from the archives the latest seasonal style comes from. 

Thankfully (as I see it) the Diana still was re-produced in 2015, what I call the "Diana reissue". It was the only season to ever re-run the Diana style and of course as the world's greatest Diana fan, I had to get my hands on one for "research purposes". Unfortunately, I didn't get it from the store, but off of another collector.

What size vintage Diana Chanel bag should I buy? Small or medium? The answer to the above question is that it depends! My buying advice is always to buy something proportional to your body shape. I originally bought my Diana intending for it to be a very elegant night bag as the beautiful tab border with edge stitching caught my eye as having potential to be THE bag for night time rendezvous. The craftsmanship on the Diana is impeccable and silhouette for some reason just screams elegance.

One of the most common questions I get asked is whether I have any caviar Diana bags for sale. This is surprising to me as the price difference between the caviar and lambskin style is almost 2x-3x which is bordering on ridiculous. However, as the foremost collector of Chanel Diana bags and for ‘research’ purposes, I took the plunge, bought one for myself a while back. It’s always been on my radar and on my wishlist but I could never make that commitment until I found one recently that tickled my fancy.
