Authenticity is at the heart of ReSee’s process. Upon reception of a handbag, our dedicated specialists carefully evaluate each piece to ensure that every bag listed on ReSee’s website is authentic. This includes a detailed inspection of the craftsmanship and design, with an acute focus on product attributes such as leather, stitches, hardware, lining, and other indicators to ensure that they correlate perfectly with a House’s mark. Working with a network of exceptional sellers, we also carefully review ownership history and supporting documents. 

Buying a handbag on ReSee you are ensuring a carefully curated bag that has been selected with taste and thoughtfulness and authenticated with precision and expertise.

Q&A with Alice


What to keep in mind when investing in a bag?

Fashion is cyclical! When you buy what you love - trends don’t matter. In recent years, long shoulder and crossbody bags were very high in demand, and now we see a return of tight fitting loop styles. Take for example the JPG Shoulder Birkin, which has gained in popularity enormously this past year. What's out of fashion today will come back tomorrow. 


What are the Best under the radar Bags on ReSee to Buy Now?

  • When it comes to Hermès the Passe-Guide is an exquisite and rarely seen piece for connoisseurs of the House, featuring a rich equestrian backstory and perfect proportions.
  • You can still find Old Céline bags at very interesting prices, remembering how much they originally retailed for in-store. This Mini Classic Box Celine is a great size for everyday, and the Hunter Green colour on this Phoebe-era Icon is incredible! 
  • The Gucci Bamboo tote is the epitome of timeless - Having been brought to fame by Lady D in the '90s, the House has continuously carried this model throughout the decades. 

Most underrated bags at the moment?

Vintage Saint Laurent such as the Mombassa were completely off the radar for a long time, but are finally gaining in popularity thanks to their intricate detailing and sleek Y2K appeal. 


Which bags should we consider selling now?

Hermès and Chanel are always in high demand, but especially the limited edition or vintage adaptions of the Houses' Iconic models are currently reaching top prices. Think backpack, minis, or supersized editions. Besides that, vintage Gucci bags, Y2K icons such as Fendi & Dior, and Timeless The Row bags are currently strong sellers.

Which bag trend do you think will be coming back soon? 

Although we currently can’t get enough of the mini bag, we are starting to see demand for supersized models such as the Hermès HAC.

What is your favorite bag and why?

A Hermès Kelly 28 box Rouge H: it’s a timeless Classic, chic, yet thanks to its color has a casual feel, and it works for all seasons. Also for me the 28 is the ideal size, perfect for everyday, either hand-carried or on the shoulder.

Which bag(s) are you currently looking for yourself?

I am on the hunt for a Hermès Sandrine in dark green box, and a vintage Saint Laurent Studded Shoulder Bag!
