Vintage Chanel: 3 Wow Pieces

Gold Western Style Skirt Suit, “C-H-A-N-E-L” Drop Earrings,
Rare Purple Glazed CalfskinPetit Matelasse Frame Doctor’s Bag

Maybe you don’t have the unique luxury of sleeping in Chanel like, say, Marilyn Monroe, but what you do have is Gilt’s seriously indulgent mix of vintage Chanel everything — courtesy of Madison Avenue Couture, an appointment-only designer boutique in NYC. Show-stopping rarities run the gamut from a glazed calfskin doctor’s bag (for the chicest M.D. we’ve ever seen) to a gilded, Western-inspired skirt suit (reminiscent of Karl Lagerfeld’s rodeo-themed Métiers d’Art show last year at the Texas State Fair grounds in Dallas). And with dozens of iconic, one-of-kind pieces in today’s sale, we give you full permission to splurge.

Castañer: Evolution of the Espadrille

Flip flops and slip-on sneakers aside, it’s all about espadrilles when it comes to quintessential spring footwear. The iconic style has been a warm-weather fixture for nearly a century, tracing back to Spain’s Luis Castañer and cousin Tomàs Serra, who opened up shop for their family’s namesake brand in 1927. Today, Castañer’s legacy comes full circle with a full-price capsule collection of must-have wedges and flats, available exclusively on Gilt. Take a look back at the signature shoe’s historic highlights, and score a covetable pair for yourself from our can’t-miss sale, starting tonight at 9pm EST.
