There is a lot of vintage luxury goods in Japan and to understand why you must look at the history and meteoric rise of the Japanese luxury market. I’ve written about the rise of luxury brands in Japan in my Japanese fashion history terms post, but here’s a little more of their history. If you like history, luxury brands, quirky fashion info settle in because it’s so much text. This is a Japanese Fashion University  and Vintage Luxury Brand in Japan series combining!

Luxury Brands in Japan through the Decades


Post War Japan – The Rise of the Middle Class and the desire for Western Luxury

There have always been wealthy people in Japan, but Post War Japan created a more middle class which turned to luxury goods. While luxury items such as real estate and cars were not especially practical or accessible in Japan, especially in Tokyo. Middle class looked to Western luxury like jewelry, clothing, handbags and furs as a way to display their new wealth.

“Unfortunately, there was little to be had in Japan; distribution was extremely limited. To satisfy the surge in demand, entrepreneurial Japanese merchants traveled to Europe, bought items at full retail price, shipped them back to Japan, and sold them for more than three or four times more in shops around Tokyo, creating what is known as a parallel market.  The parallel market cofounded luxury executives back in Europe: their flagship stores were getting cleaned out stock, and they had no control over how their product was being sold overseas.” (Deluxe)

Side note: Chanel and other brands try to track and ban third-party resellers like this even today.




1970s Luxury Brands in Japan – Trying to meet Demand in a Harsh Trade Environment

In the 1970s only a few overseas luxury brands has broken into the Japanese market. Even though the Japanese were very into luxury brand goods before they ever hit the Japanese shores. In 1976 Louis Vuitton in Paris had to put a limit on the amount of goods sold to a Japanese tourist because they couldn’t handle the stock.

Only a few luxury brands were actually in Japan at the time. Gucci, Hermes and Loewe were currently selling to the Japanese public. This was because to operate a large corporation like a luxury house you had to team up with a Japanese company to do business in Japan. This is a part of trade regulations in Japan. Slowly in the 1970s there was small deregulations (all over the globe there was vast deregulations going on) but despite that Japan was conservative and only allowed foreign businesses to own 50% of a company. This makes setting up in Japan not cost effective to luxury brands. Also Gucci and Hermes can put their name on the item, but they must pair up with a speciality or department store, using their manufacturing base. This was common also in US and Europe.

1980s Luxury Brands in Japan – The Biggest Consumer of Luxury in the World

The 1980s were filled with a boom in the luxury market known as manufacture of luxury brands through licensing. During this time brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci made everything from candles to handkerchiefs.

Side note: Some of these manufacturing for licensing contracts still exist like many brand sunglasses such as Chanel, Gucci and Prada. Or luxury brand perfumes is also another example. In Japan under handkerchiefs and hand towels you can buy Yves Saint Laurent and Vivienne Westwood goods not found in anywhere else because of this licensed manufacturing contract.


Side note: Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Chanel never agreed to these contracts in their clothing or jewelry making their vintage items more valuable.


The thunder crack boom of luxury spending in Japan was so big that after opening in 1978 Louis Vuitton sold more in Japan than it did with its two stores in France. There were 6 stores in Japan compared to the two in France. That number grew to 44 in 2012.

Fun fact: The first Chanel and Louis Vuitton individual stores came to Japan first before the United States (both had previously used contracts with big department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman). If you see a tag sewn into a Chanel blouse that says Saks Fifth Avenue it’s because of this department store contract.

Louis Vuitton opened in Japan in 1978 and Chanel in 1980. It was actually only due to Japanese vacationing in Hawaii did the first Chanel store opened in the United States in 1984. Louis Vuitton aggressively pushed into Japan in the 1980s.

The economic bubble burst around mid 90s during and a little after the bubble meant 1985-99 was really a true boom in luxury brands in Japan. A supernova of a boom that made Japan the biggest consumer of luxury goods from late 1980s to 2009.

Louis Vuitton built their first Ginza store in 1981 with the hopes of making a luxury street like the Fifth Avenue in the US, Saint Honore in Paris or Monte Napoleon in Milan. By the end of the 1980s twenty stand-alone brand stores opened in Ginza.

1990s Luxury Brands in Japan – Bubble Burst but still Strong

Even after the bubble burst in the 1990s some people still had money and brand allegiance had been built. The only growing purchasers were so called “Parasitic Singles” in Japan. These were working age (25-34) men and women who still lived with their parents and spent all their disposable money on luxury and travel.

“The major companies — Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Chanel, and Christian Dior — managed to secure dramatic growth during the mid-1990s, at a time when total import sales were falling.” (luxury society)

Louis Vuitton from one boutique in the 1990s was clearing 100 million USD in sales, while Chanel in another was doing 60 million. Louis Vuitton from 1978 to the end of the 90s had grown 50% in sales. (Deluxe)

At the end of the 1990s there was a stat thrown around that if you distributed all the Louis Vuitton in Japan to all the women that one in four women would own a Louis Vuitton good. Or another staggering statistic that 30 million Japanese own a Louis Vuitton good. This is despite the prices in Japan being 30-40% higher than in Europe due to import fees and currency exchange rates. (Cult of the Luxury Brand)





Luxury Brands 2000s onwards – Slowing but still a Goliath

Despite the problems of the 1990s, Tokyo’s luxury area Ginza saw its first “mega flagship store” of 11 floors with Hermes in 2001. The 2000s were the age of “mega flagship stores” being built in Ginza. Chanel and Louis Vuitton followed in Hermes’ footsteps.

Flagship was they key in 2000 and just fifteen years ago Omotesando was changed from a family neighborhood near the Meji shrine into a stylish hub of stand-alone luxury stores. Louis Vuitton opened in 2002, Prada in 2003, Dior in 2004 and finally the stylish Omotesando Hills luxury mall in 2006. All of these Omotensando developments were being planned in the 1990s, it was thanks to the Parasite Singles and bubble leftovers that Omotensando came into fruition.

Even now Omotesando is considered the place were younger luxury men and women shop, while Ginza is for the older clientele. Even though both were only built twenty years apart.

The youth luxury has also brought contemporary brands into the surrounding neighborhood of Aoyama with stand alone stores. Acne Studios, Alexander Wang and Jil Sander.

Side note: These luxury stand-alone stores have been sited as a reason department stores are going bankrupt recently. Department stores that have brand shops inside them charge rent for the space, but also take a percentage of the profits of the sales. Luxury brands sell big ticket items so this is big money. Being inside a department store makes brand shops not have to pay for costs such as construction, land, or upkeep but in the long run its not cost effective to pay rent AND a percentage when you can build your own and keep all of that money.

In the late 2000s there were finally signs of slowing of luxury. Some brands are projected to see 15 to 30 percent drops in their Japanese revenue base for fiscal 2008 (luxury society). But even then before Japan dropped to number two behind China, Japan accounted for 40% of luxury goods sold worldwide. (Cult of The Luxury Brand)

Even now Japan is the second largest luxury market. China has risen to number one. Asia’s love for luxury makes it no coincidence that Chanel has shown three times in the last four years in Asia for the Métiers dArt  shows.

Japan’s current strength on number two has a lot to do with Chinese regulations and taxation on their goods so Chinese travel to Japan to make purchases with the cheap travel deals and weak Japanese yen. But it also has a lot to do with the history of Japanese luxury. Your mother had a Louis Vuitton bag, you may want one too. Or it’s in the psyche now that overseas luxury is quality.

In only 30 years overseas luxury brands have really changed the Japanese spending habits.




Just as stocked as a flagship, a vintage store in Osaka selling Chanel

Currently Japan’s perfect vintage storm

Because of the huge booms of 1980 and 1990s of buying in Japan there is so much vintage luxury brand in Japan now. With the slowing in the local economy many Japanese are still looking at branded goods but on the cheaper resale market. Chinese tourism has also been a factor. All big vintage stores in Japan have at least one Chinese speaker on staff. The luxury vintage brand demand in Japan is so much that buyers for the vintage stores are visiting Paris auctions and resale shops and bringing goods into Japan as well. Which is why the Vintage Brand in Japan series is going on.



Shout outs and references

I linked to a few things I sourced but this article is very sourced by the book “Louis Vuitton Japan: The building of Luxury” which is out of print but I have in hardcover. The book is also sourced in most every article or book I found about luxury goods in Japan and for a good reason. It’s a bit dry, but very interesting. I also read but didn’t directly quote The Economist’s section of the Asian Luxury Market forecast in 2013.

Although I didn’t use it as a source it’s a perfect time to shout out one of my favorite fashion news blogs: Business of Fashion. If you’re interested in the fashion industry, especially high fashion it’s a wonderful resource.

Wow two months without a post? :heartbreak: I didn’t really expect to post while I was in Japan for a month. I usually forget sleeping then too. Then I got home and had a bunch of stuff to do and man’s parents visited and I actually made our place look nice instead of living in a great loft and my crap just piled inside. I really hate decorating. I think there’s a reason we lived on a mattress without a bedframe (which we now again have #adult) and used the money to travel instead. Balance. I also tried to do more ATL things. Almost a year in and it still feels ATLien (sorry for the wordplay Outkast). And I got back to daily working out, hahaha why. I shitpost a lot on snapchat, feel free to follow (metoomitsu) :smiley:

So many reasons I’m a vintage brand fan especially a vintage Chanel fan, but here’s a few and maybe they’ll inspire you to look to vintage.

vintage chanel flap

1.  The price of a classic Chanel flap has tripled in the last decade. After 1950 through 2000 having a moderate steady inflationary rise in price. 50 years of Chanel steadiness and yet it’s gone crazy. This has led a lot of store-buyers to head to the vintage aisle. Thankfully I bought a bag before they raised but in 7 years my bag has raised 2.5k. That’s USDollars. I could instantly sell my bag for how much I paid for, with all possibility even make a profit on it. Admittedly I think the pricing hikes will slow down soon, but it’s still ludicrous.

2. The Chanel flap along with other brand figureheads are the longest lasting bag styles. Coco Chanel herself introduced many of the signature aspects of the bag. In 1955 the signature chain woven strap was introduced and started the flap. The CC pushlock was introduced by Karl in the 1980s however. It is a truly timeless bag both on trend and classic at the same time. Both traditional leather types are surprisingly long lasting. The pebbled Caviar calfskin and the butter soft lambskin. A repairer can repaint, restitch and remake a vintage Chanel bag but it will keep going years after you’re at the cash register (or eBay checkout).

I have two Vintage Chanel bags from the 1980s, they’re pretty solid looking still. I wore one to Disneyworld because I think it’s still very hardy.


3. Vintage brand costume jewelry is amazing and lasting. The quality of costume jewelry has decreased in the last 10 years. And this is my own experience talking, but I’ve been greatly disappointed with a lot of costume pieces I’ve bought. So much so that it’s made me mostly ban myself from purchasing a lot of recent designs because I see their flaws or bad metal choices. Even seeing some of the resale pieces you see the wear and tear on the newer pieces.

Vintage brand costume jewelry is quite different. It feels more weighty and gold items are 14K plated sometimes double to ward off chipping. Vintage jewelry can be repaired by a third party often easily. They actually sell at-home gold plating kits to fix issues. Jewelers will repair as well. I just bought an item needing a fix and found three jewelers in my area to fix it. SO much is repairable and re-wearable of vintage jewelry!

Although prices on vintage Chanel jewelry has risen quality and beautiful designs by Yves Saint Laurent and others have stayed at a low price.

Also, vintage costume jewelry is an easy way to make an outfit look fancy. A $4.00 beanie with a $100 Chanel brooch = Chanel beanie. An that brooch can go onto a jacket, shirt, skirt etc…

4. Fakes have clouded the resale market with newer bags and accessories. Some professional authenticators have refused to authenticate anything from 2013 onwards if they don’t have it in their possession, these are the so-called “superfakes”. In contrast, the vintage brand market is less clouded by fakes thus far (knock on wood). Old fakes look really fake or were done in a style never released by the company.

5. Quality workmanship lasts. I have bags 20 and 30 years old and there’s no rusting and only minor wear. You may look at yourself and think differently being 20 or 30 years old. I tore my MCL tendon from running, the doctor asked when was my car wreck. I still have feelings from it 7 years ago. Vintage can take more than my bum body.

A lot of brands including Chanel have taken decided against quality workmanship that got them to their status. They’ve stopped gold plating their hardware or testing leather dyes or sticking with certain colors that didn’t show wear as much. I’ve seen two year old bags look older than 20 year old ones.

6. There are still bargains to be found. Although the vintage brand secondary market is rising. Within the last 2 years the vintage brand market has skyrocketed. More people are getting into it for the reasons above and it’s created a lot more competition. But with some thorough hunting and willing to compromise you can find some really lovely items.

7. What goes around comes around (actually thats the name of a vintage store, an overpriced one). A lot of what brands do is either funky or classic. The funky feels neat even 20 years later and the classic is always classic. In my next post I’ll show celebs wearing lots of vintage Chanel and they wear it all in casual or modern ways. I think so many brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Versace and Chanel all have produced very youthful clothing at times. Karl Lagerfeld has taken Chanel so many ways. There was even a punk collection or two. However you feel like dressing, Larme, Otona Kawaii, Rock etc… vintage brands can have a seasonal answer for you. Look back to to look forward!

7. It stops the cycle of producing new goods. Consumer waste and excess which admittedly makes me feel guilty. Sure I want to buy, retail therapy is my therapy. Thanks to vintage I’m not creating more material use and waste to do so (other than shipping).

8. Because there’s a thrill in finding something hard to find or a good price. There’s a joy in being a cheapskate. I’m so proud of being cheap and it feels weird, but getting something and paying less for it than market value? Oh I’m at my happiest! Bargain hunting feels amazing!

9. The Japanese Yen is steady at 110-120 yen the dollar. Bad for Japanese wanting to go overseas, good for travelers and shoppers! When I was living in Japan it went from 120yen to the dollar to 90 yen to the dollar. UGH! Tough times! It’s back at 120yen mostly and that makes it a wonderful time to buy from Japan. New or vintage. Abe seems to be very set on keeping the yen low to encourage tourism. There’s so much money spent on tourism recently and there’s even been word creation and new businesses based on the new tourism. My next posts are all about why how and where in Japan so I’ll explain why brand in Japan is such a big thing!

Sorry I took two weeks off between posts! It wasn’t my intention. I took a week trip to Disneyworld and brought my laptop but I was go-go-go at Disney, and between I got quite busy with day to day boring stuff. Alas I’m back and ready to blog a lot for a month until I head for Japan again! Sakura, Chanel, Make-up, Skincare all coming!

This was a post I was going to do much later, but I might as well answer the big question first about places to buy vintage brand. Everytime I post a new buy on instagram or talk about my love of Chanel the first question I always seem to get is “Where do you buy your Chanel?”

And I get it.


Sometimes buying vintage is... like wadding through piles of hot garbage until you find a diamond.

Sometimes buying vintage is… getting sticker shock 40 times and then seeing something that actually looks affordable.

Sometimes buying vintage is… looking at a piece and thinking “Wow the designer had a seriously ugly season”

Sometimes buying vintage is… seeing some pieces so busted you start running through scenarios of what happened. Did a jealous boyfriend set fire to it? Did you own a puppy and no high shelves? Is that mud? I hope that’s mud.


But I always wonder if people think I know this like super secret vault of cheap Chanel and I’m just Gollum-ing all to myself. Presssshusssss The answer to that is nope.

Hahah you thought this post would just be one website. Suckers.

No way. I wish.


I should be packing. I should be doing my nails. I should be doing anything but making this hideous photoshop. If you’re wondering how I picture myself, add 80 cats and you’re pretty close.

Gollum looks like he’s posing for a 90s hiphop album cover.

In reality I wake up every morning, get coffee, drink 800 quarts of coffee then 600 quarts of green tea and check some of the sites I mention below. Coffee and Chanel, the addictions start right off in the morning. But sometimes it’s just all about timing, the right price, there’s no real tricks other than checking all the sites and knowing what you want :)


There are other sites that sell vintage brand and I know of them, like 1stdibs & NastyGal vintage but I’m not listing places that are hilariously overpriced.

Note: I am a Chanelstan but these sites are helpful for lots of vintage pieces, brand (Hermes, Gucci, MCM, YSL) and not.




Worldwide / USA


The Big sites



What can I say about eBay that hasn’t already been said about the Plague? The giant we love to hate and hate to love. I occasionally buy off of eBay. Much less than I used to. I do occasionally see good vintage deals on bags. A lot of Japanese sellers on here you can find on Rakuten for cheaper including shipping with the yen to USD conversion so be aware.

Recommended sellers: yuko, lindasstuff, standingpoint (Japanese seller but no Japanese online store)

Vestaire Collective

Vestaire Collective is a French site in English that has been really pushing authentication and rare pieces. A lot more European sellers than eBay and a great landing place for rare items. I have yet to buy from here because the price/piece/time perfect set of circumstances hasn’t happened, but I check everyday and do love the items posted.

Discount for new users on first purchase.


This place has been trying to rival eBay and they do a nice job for sellers and buyers. I know some Purse Forum people sell their wares here. They guarantee authentication and are very quick in responding to issues. It’s often got the same eBay sellers hawking the same items and can get redundant, but I’ve found some lovely quality pieces here. (All photos from the second set above are from Tradesy)

Discount for new users on first purchase.


Etsy? The place more famous for handmade lace and knick knacks? Yup! A lot of vintage stores operate out of Etsy. I do find there’s more (blatant) fakes here than other places. However individual sellers often have really good deals on items and no bidding to worry about. I’ve scored a lovely rare silk printed top for $47 and a harder to find colored bag for $400.


Smaller sites



Therealreal is a network of consignment stores across US. They have a large selection that occasionally goes on eBay. Prices are varied but good deals to be found. They do a wonderful job about sizing and measurements.


One of the more famous smaller resale sites on-line. They also sell on eBay but their prices are better at their on-line store. Prices often inflated because of the site’s popularity. Reading reviews from buyers and their webstore descriptions it seems they often don’t explain or show wear/damage as well as they should. They often have nice prices on rare vintage items, but it depends.


Lollipuff is a stickler for authentication and goes beyond the Chanel/LV market and is into Herve Leger and Christian Louboutin authentication. Lollipuff is a site like eBay but more intimate and has auctions and sales. I’ve purchased once from them and I’ve been satisfied. Often some nice prices.

Designer Vault

Miley Cyrus’s stylist’s place to find the rare Vintage Chanel she often wears. Prices range from acceptable to inflated, but nice finds and rare items.


A store that specializes in used but has some vintage pieces. Some good prices on rarer items, but mainly so-so prices.


The clunkiest website of the bunch, horrible search feature expect to just click for hours to find something you like. But it is a collective of used and vintage shops that often have rare pieces. Prices are all over the place, but sometimes some good buys are up.

Note: Big vintage seller Ninafurfur sells on here, often a better selection

Envoi Paradis

A newer store but a good small collection of vintage items. Prices are kind and wonderful pictures.

Rice and Beans Vintage

There’s not a lot of smaller sites I list because there’s a lot of them and the selection is weak, but Dallas based Rice and Beans vintage really cultivates some great pieces. They just seem to have a great eye on hunting vintage pieces based on current trends and not pricing them too over the top.

Ann’s Fabulous Finds

As soon as they’re put up so many of Ann’s Fabulous Finds are snatched up. Good condition pieces at some decent prices. Not as much vintage as used items, but a good mix.




You will need buying services or shopping services to order from most of these sites. Please read several posts I’ve made about that online here and here. Chanel is super popular in Japan so prices can get high, other fashion house brands are much cheaper compared to US.

Unless I specifically say English, these places are Japanese only so buyer beware if you’re not fluent. Do not leave the fate of your paycheck up to Google Translate.


Big sites:



Rakuten moves a ton of vintage items through their web doors daily. A lot of brick-and-mortar Japanese vintage stores have Rakuten e-stores. I’ve bought often from sellers on Rakuten. Great deals are often snatched up within minutes of posting so check often.

Note: Rakuten has a Global site but it is smaller with less selection, messier searching and often horrible translations.

Recommended sellers: Rinkan (brick and mortar stores across Japan), Ragtag (brick and mortar stores across Japan), Hugall, Reference

Y! Auctions

Japan’s eBay. The biggest auction site in Japan. Lots of vintage for sale on Y! Auctions. I buy pretty steadily from here and have found some good deals. Since the buyer market is smaller than eBay it’s often easier to win the bidding war. Although Y!Auctions adds 5 minutes to an auction after a snipe bid so it’s not really a snipe type of place.

Recommended sellers: Ecoring, Brandear, Milkyquartz

Using Rakuten (Auctions or Site) and Yahoo Auctions you need to use a service. Recommended services: Buyee (more expensive but very easy to use), From Japan (cheaper but clunkier to use). Again if you are not fluent in Japanese, buyer beware.


Smaller Sites


Qoo has tried to be the leader of vintage brand in Japan. They work on having model/shop staff and making sure celebrities always buy from them. They try to shape this Qoo-look that is a young stylish vintage lover that has inspired a lot of stores. Since they are so popular their stock is often not as sharp and prices are over inflated. Unlike most Japanese places they are not as detailed about wear-and-tear of their vintage items. However they do have English assistance and deals can still be found.  One of the great things about Qoo is they hunt down rare clothing from Fendi, Chanel and others.


Hedy is a rare store that is just on-line but has gained a lot of fans in Japan. Both Alisa Ueno and Momoko Ogihara are fans. My friends Nicola and Stella have both bought from here and both were very satisfied. It’s a place that does an excellent job in finding lovely vintage items and showing their wear. Their prices are often good for what they’re selling and they have go beyond the typical Chanel have wonderful YSL, Gucci, Fendi and other brands. They really seem to buy whats on trend (color/shape) for the season but in vintage pieces. (Photo above is some of the items selling at Hedy recently)

They also have a rakuten store.


E-Lady sells on Rakuten and Y!Auctions and eBay but the best prices are always on their website. It’s in English and global EMS shipping is included in the price. Great quality items. Bags usually a bit overpriced, jewelry is better. I’ve purchased from here and very satisfied with my item.

Discount for new users on first purchase.

Timeless Tokyo aka Paula’s

A longer running vintage store which occasionally really great deals especially on jewelry and clothing. I’ve bought from their brick and mortar store in Tokyo and I’m super satisfied.


It’s a giant list and you just have to search and find something you want. In the end of the day it only matters if you like it

Websites I’ve used most often this year: Y! Auctions, Rakuten, Etsy, Tradesy
