Ever wanted to own a piece of vintage Chanel but haven't been able to find it? Or maybe your mum is keeping her Chanel collection in a vault before passing it down to you? Fret not, because Nasty Gal has dropped a collection of vintage 80s and 90s Chanel pieces here

The e-commerce site has unveiled a massive collection of vintage Chanel, mostly accessories including bags, necklaces and earrings, but also dresses, skirts and more. The collection includes a red umbrella with matching quilted bag, Chanel suspenders, classic bags and wallets. Fans of the current sporty trend are especially in luck as the collection also includes a Chanel-encrusted tennis racket along with a matching bag, a 90s-era mesh visor, a black leather Chanel basketball, and Chanel skis with matching goggles and helmet. Think 2014 is all about health goth? Better think again.  

There's even a 90s-era phone case and a pair of Chanel motocross boots available.

The idea came about when Nasty Gal's vintage buyer, Liz Franczak, noticed a crush whenever she put a vintage Chanel piece in Nasty Gal's higher-end vintage section, The Score.

"I thought it would be cool if we did something really huge, and it all came together really organically. I was finding stuff that I thought was really cool and went well together," Liz commented.

Most of the collection's pieces are priced at more than US$1,000 (approx. RM3,000), but that doesn't worry some people when it comes to Chanel.
