Franziska Nazarenus is a big vintage fan herself, she tells us and has already treated herself to a few pieces. As a fashion professional, the Parisian by choice is always on the go to find the latest gold pieces. We followed her "virtually" and asked her to take us around "her" metropolis so we wouldn't suffer the same look like "Emily in Paris".
Franziska loves her Fendi baguette, for example, which exudes 90s flair, a Dior saddle bag that looks all too iconic with the Oblique print of the John Galliano-era house which she also rocks in the picture above. And last but not least, a Louis Vuitton pochette with a multicoloured monogram pattern. The fact that secondhand reinforces the fashion cycle and that bags can also be a "good investment", as Franziska has discovered, is a good reason to go on the hunt for the next piece.
