It’s nice to know that our pre-loved luxury goods can be given a new life.

Courtesy of Namesake Collection, you can now sport some rare upcycled jewellery pieces, crafted from vintage Louis Vuitton handbags.

As part of its Vintage Vault capsule, the Melbourne-based brand has taken the hardware from retro LV bags and reimagined them into gold chain necklaces.

The first drop encompasses three unique necklaces – the ‘Swivel’, ‘Padlock’ and ‘Zipper’ – which have been restored by hand.

Ranging from $160 to $200, the Vintage Vault collection is available to shop now.
