A treasure trove of 177 memorable designs by iconic French fashion house Chanel is being unveiled at Sotheby‘s Milan, ahead of an online sale later this month. Since its foundation in 1910, the haute couture label has been synonymous with luxury and glamour, and this auction charts decades of timeless trends. Presenting vivid bags in every imaginable colour, elegant dresses, unique jewellery and an abundance of coveted accessories all from the vast wardrobe of a devoted lover of fashion.
Visit the exhibition at the neoclassical Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan on 3 and 4 December, or place your bid online from 29 November – 5 December – and find the perfect ensemble to exude Christmas chic this year.
Ahead of the auction, the collection was modelled by glamorous Italian collector Cecilia Matteucci Lavarini, whose own world-class wardrobe is made up of over 3,000 beautiful, vibrant and stylish garments – part of which has been donated to the Costume Gallery of the Palazzo Pitti in Florence and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
