Vintage 1970s Céline Wool Blazer

I often think about labels as signifiers. How some labels confer status and others are more like a a secret handshake among those in the know. For example, Chanel and Céline are both luxury labels. Céline is hardly a cult label and there are those who would tell you that Céline is the new Chanel. Céline just doesn’t have the name recognition that drives up the prices these days. Which means that you will have better luck at finding a wonderfully made Céline blazer at the Value Village for $10. And when you wear it, those in the know will still be impressed.
