There’s Nothing Nastier Than Vintage Chanel
With a true vintage heritage, Nasty Gal is going back to its roots with the Ultimate Score, a collection of one hundred pieces of vintage Chanel clothing, jewelry, and bags. “I sold my first Chanel jacket on eBay in 2007,” Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of NastyGal.com, told Style.com. “Since then we’ve continued to carry both non-luxury and luxury items in our vintage category…and today [customers are] still demanding more.” Scoured from the best sources and secret spots, the stash includes pieces from the eighties and nineties that fit perfectly into the Nasty Gal closet, among them a leather backpack, logo-print blouses, crop tops, high-waisted trousers, classic bouclé suits, and bags.
“There were definitely fashion moments we wanted to hit,” Amoruso continued of the collection that’s peppered with the black leather and gold chains of the eighties and the pastels and silver holograms of the nineties—even runway pieces from Spring ’97 are on offer. “Chanel transcends culture. Coco Chanel was a visionary who broke rules and set the stage for generations of women after her to think and dress for themselves.” The introduction of this luxe vintage range comes at a time when the savvy entrepreneur is upping her high fashion image. And these new finds—which, debuting exclusively here, will be available on the site from 9 a.m. PT today—embody the same spirit with which Amoruso built Nasty Gal.
