Vintage Contessa Chanel Brand

Customize Your Handbags, Watches, Diamonds, Jewelry & Accessories

We give you, the customer, the ability to customize your most coveted pieces.Through our Contessa Collaborations, we pursue creativity with partners who take us outside of our comfort zones, offering unique attributes for your classic pieces..

During our events, we meet with you face to face to incorporate your own unique personal taste, rather than a celebration of only the brands you want to purchase.

Luxury has been about the “it bag” or hottest watch, but today true luxury is about personalizing an item and expressing one’s true self.Allowing you, the customer, to select the specific details creates more than a beautiful item, you become part of the process, by custom designing your personal piece.

Custom Painted Handbags

Customized bags are a great way to make your handbag also a work of art, and fashion-forward women know that the ultimate OOTD accessory is accented with monograms, hand-painted designs and graffiti accents. (Plus it’s a great way to give a favorite older bag an instant fashion refresh.) 

In a collaboration with Hahn Tran, we feature custom hand-painted designs made to fit your personality. The Vintage Contessa first unveiled feminine floral patterns by local artist Hanh Tran that could be added to our collection of vintage handbags and luggage. We’ve since expanded our hand-painted design customization options to feature your dog, a fashionable element, a phrase/personal mantra or your initials.

Custom Bag/Guitar Straps & Patches

CoCo Chanel was one of the first and most talented handbag designers to add straps to handbags. It was rumored she took her necklaces and attached them to clutches in order to be hands free at cocktail parties. We still see the iconic straps on her classic 2.55 double flap Chanel bag.
Today designers are embracing this trend creating bag/guitar straps to extend the personalization and useablitly of bags.

Adding a wider long strap to an Hermes Kelly, converts this “it bag” made famous by Grace Kelly, from a bag held in your hand or on the nook of your elbow to a bag more easily carried as a crossbody. This addition also transforms the bag from being an elegant Upper East Side bag to a more hip Downtown bag.
