Last year, Chinese supermodel Xi Mengyao gave birth to a beautiful son after marrying He Youjun, son of the king of gambling. Xi Mengyao, eager to keep up appearances in the public eye immediately returned to work where she participated in the live mainland show to maintain her popularity. The renown model showcased her collection of second hand bags recently across her social platforms and these included the iconic brand Chanel. It’s interesting that Xi Mengyao shows off used pieces, rather than new pieces.

Most people believe money earned by models rarely goes towards fashion purchases, especially since their work revolves around these luxury goods. In a lot of cases models spend their money in completely different fields, such as starting their own business selling fruit juice or in the sports industry. Contrary to this, Xi Mengyao, actually stepped into her modelling career because of her love for fashion. The star likes to collect a range of second-hand bags for use outside of her working hours, with Chanel a clear favorite. Through partnerships with Chanel, she has become accustomed to the true art of purchasing the brand’s bags, knowing which pieces hold high value, and which are limited in their future value potential. She shared her favorite styles throughout her highly thought out collection, which included three of the most famous and rare mother-and-child bags, which sell for around 6 digits! These older models are actually priced far higher than some of the latest bags on the market!

Pictured above, Xi Mengyao holds the mother-and-child handbag that was launched by Chanel in 1994. With it being a seasonal limited edition model, it has long been discontinued.

What does the second-hand bag market teach us? Chanel’s popular design took inspiration from the highly sought after styles from the Middle Ages. The mother-and-child bag that was launched in 1994 is a key example of this. During the Middle Age period, bag capacity was rather small, irrespective of its cost, and people were still willing to pay the price. Over the years, Chanel has continued to create mother-and-child bags to invite brand fans to capture this very essence of history.

Chanel’s Classic Flag Bag Yongda is a must-have style inspired by medieval times. The brand launches special CF styles every season that would make great additions to your bag collection, offering a mixture of fabrics like tweed, PVC, velvet, and denim. Whilst buying Chanel really requires a little knowledge, with these styles you won’t go wrong as they forever expected to remain popular models amongst the second-hand market!
