Fashion accessories can be loosely categorised into two general areas: those that are carried and those that are worn. Traditional carried accessories include handbags, umbrellas and fans; and accessories that are worn include shoes, scarves, belts and sunglasses.
OfV says: Our edit of unique pre-owned and vintage designer accessories spans decades of hand-picked finds, including scarves, sunglasses, belts, gloves, hats and shoes. Below, the OfV curators explain what you can expect to find in our hand-picked designer vintage accessories edit.
Scarves have endless styling potential - trust in our edit of vintage and pre-owned designer monogram print scarves, comforting wraps and festive stoles, from Hermès, Dior, Pucci and more, to add a truly original addition to your accessories collection.
With a special penchant for dressy vintage hats, our edit of pre-owned designer and vintage headpieces span decades of iconic hats crafted by some of the most prominent hatters, milliners and fashion houses in history. Panama-style straw hats, eye-catching ostrich hats or Hermès silk turbans – we’ve got your unique headpiece covered.
Our superb edit of vintage sunglasses includes Medusa-embellished vintage Versace sunglasses; Chanel’s celeb favourite statement logo shades; and Yves Saint Laurent’s unconventionally shaped 1970s sunnies channelling Yves own iconic personal style.
