At Vestiaire, we are obsessed with the items that stand the test of time. Buying a luxury bag is way more than just consuming fashion. It’s your chance to look fabulous in the moment while keeping an option to sell it onwards when you are ready for something fresh! We think of it as an investment that keeps on giving.
See how the average price of these top 5 Gucci bags have increased over the last 2 years and get investing!
Inspired by a buckle that Gucci designed in the 1970s, the Marmont is soft, structured and an instant classic. Known for its versatility, the Marmont comes in a multitude of colors, sizes, and shapes - meaning that there is a Marmont to satisfy all tastes and preferences!
But regardless of the model, there is no doubt that the Marmont is quickly moving upwards in the echelons of fashion, often being named the ‘it’ bag of its time. Previously sold at $1980, the GG Marmont small matelassé shoulder bag now retails for $2100!
Debuting in the Cruise 2018 collection, Ophidia blends vintage house codes like the green and red stripe and the GG textile with the Marmont-era logo. Like several other Gucci collections, such as Dionysus, the Ophidia gets its name from Greek Origins.
Similar to the Marmont, the Ophidia also comes in several shapes, styles and materials. From the bucket bag, to the belt bag, to the crossbody, the Ophidia is truly a timeless piece. In fact, the average resale value of Ophidia bags is about 72%!
Featuring an embossed, interlocking double-G, Soho was launched in 2012 and has been seen on the arm of pretty much every 'It' girl and boy ever since. This doesn’t come as a surprise, given the bag’s simple yet chic look, combined with its practicality! This bag can be dressed up or down, and comes in handy to accompany you on any occasion. Previously sold at $980, the Gucci Soho now retails for $1250!
Named after the Greek god of fertility and pleasure, Dionysus gets the party started with an old-school shape and a horseshoe buckle. The bag has a lot of styles and sizes, but it is easily recognized by its basic silhouette. In fact, one of the most memorable models of this bag included bee embroidering, and that model has since become a collectible item. Over the past few years, the price of the Dionysus bag has increased by about 22% in certain regions!
Named after Jackie O (who else?), this style has been around since the '50s, with many variations since. The Jackie was reintroduced by creative director Alessandro Michele as part of the autumn 2020 show, under the name “Jackie 1961”. The bag has remained true to its iconic origins, but has also been readapted to different sizes and colors, with the handbag made mini, small, and medium.
Still considered an it bag over 60 years later, the Jackie is the epitome of investment pieces. Over the past few years, the bag’s price has risen by over 18% and now sells for $2500, compared to a previous price of $2160.
These pieces from Louis Vuitton are called an 'investment' for a good reason - they are practical for enjoying today and will bring you a return when you are ready to sell it. Snap it now, and thank me later!
