Few brands can inspire such loyalty as Chanel, whose 2.55 bag, tweed jacket and No. 5 perfume have never gone out of style. Some of the luxury brand's biggest fans might be found among the staff of What Goes Around Comes Around. The La Brea designer vintage emporium is showcasing its affections with a big Chanel sale that opens tomorrow morning at 11am and runs through this Sunday.
We dropped by the store earlier today to peruse the more than 125 pieces on offer, which include gold and silver jewelry, handbags and clothing. We were especially taken by a pair of now-discontinued pearl-accented sunglasses, a small black leather backpack from the late 1980s and the chunky chains and cuffs designed by Victoire de Castellane under Karl Lagerfeld.
If you're looking to invest, you'll spend around $650 to $895 for earrings, about $1,200 for a simple bracelet, anywhere from $1,950 to $2,950 for bags and $1,750 to $2,950 for jackets. Go early, as they won't be restocking.
