20th century costume & textiles fashion at CHRISTIE'S

Sep '05
London auction house Christie's is going to held Vintage Fashion At Christie's South Kensington In September.

The popular annual Costume and Textiles including 20th Century Fashion sale on 29 September 2005 is a must for fashion devotees searching for vintage clothes and accessories in excellent condition at good value prices. Featuring pieces by established esigners such as Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior, Ossie Clark and Biba, as well as classic designers of the earlier 20th century such as Balenciaga, Chanel and Paul Poiret, estimates start from as little as £100.

A beautiful collection of vintage creations from the private collection of the former Swedish model Ms Ulla Carenby leads the sale. From 1967 to the mid 1970s Ms Carenby modelled for, among other designers, Yves Saint Laurent and was his favourite model and also a close friend.

Including examples of both Haute Couture and Pret à Porter, the collection includes a beautiful selection of clothes and accessories by classic designers such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Pierre Cardin, Pucci and of course, Yves Saint Laurent (estimates range from £50 to £1,000). The former Swedish top model was presented with many of the pieces by several of the famous fashion houses. They have remained in impeccable condition, with many never worn and still in original boxes and covers.

Amongst highlights from the collection includes the classic Yves Saint Laurent smoking suit for women which the designer created in 1966 and has inspired many creations since (estimate: £400- 600) and a beautiful selection of shoes by shoe designer Roger Vivier, who pioneered the stiletto and platform and whose shoes are described as "the Faberge of footwear" (estimate: £500-1,000).
