De Chanel à Saint Laurent, une garde-robe haute couture

Après le succès des deux pièces de haute couture Chanel et Yves Saint Laurent dans la vente Exceptional le 22 novembre dernier, nous sommes heureux de présenter en vente online une plus large sélection de cette même extraordinaire garde-robe haute couture. Aux côtés des couturiers Yves Saint Laurent et Karl Lagerfeld pour Chanel seront les autres grands maîtres du XXe siècle : Christian Lacroix, John Galliano pour Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Jean-Louis Scherrer et Valentino parmi d’autres. Cette garde-robe, réunie avec passion provient de la superbe collection « De Beijing à Versailles, la Collection V.W.S », qui sera vendue en décembre chez Christie’s.
Plus de 110 pièces datant surtout des années 1970-80-90 sont proposées aux collectionneurs et aux élégantes illustrant le savoir-faire d’exception, la créativité et la somptuosité de la haute couture notamment parisienne. Les pièces les plus importantes sont un ensemble de velours noir de Givenchy datant de 1979 orné de bouches rouges, hommage à Schiaparelli, un somptueux blouson en daim et vison entièrement orné de bijoux par Lesage de la collection automne-hiver 1984-1985 de Yves Saint Laurent, une robe en velours violet brodée par Lesage de Karl Lagerfeld pour Chanel, automne-hiver 1988-1989. De superbes et exubérants ensembles du soir brodés de Christian Lacroix des années 1990 voisinent avec des pièces à l’élégance intemporelle comme ce manteau en lainage noir à boutons dorés, quintessence du style Chanel daté 1995-1996. Des années 1990 également, un magnifique manteau de Alexandre Mc Queen en satin vert amande et dentelle noire de 1997-1998 fait partie des lots les plus rares et intéressants de la vente.

After the success of the two haute couture pieces by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the Exceptional sale which took place on the 22nd November, we are pleased to present a wider selection from the same collection of extraordinary haute couture in our online sale. Alongside couturiers Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel will this time be other great masters of the 20th century such as Christian Lacroix, John Galliano for Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Jean-Louis Scherrer and Valentino among others. This world-class wardrobe, assembled with passion is also part of the wonderful “From Beijing to Versailles, the V.W.S collection” to be sold by Christie’s in December.
More than 110 pieces dating mainly from the 1970s-80s-90s are available for bidding to our collectors and elegant women alike, illustrating the exceptional know-how, creativity and brilliance of haute couture, especially in Paris. The most important pieces are a black velvet ensemble by Givenchy dating from 1979 adorned with red lips, a homage to Schiaparelli, a sumptuous suede and mink jacket entirely adorned with jewels by Lesage from the fall-winter 1984-1985 collection by Yves Saint Laurent, a purple velvet dress also embroidered by Lesage by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, fall-winter 1988-1989. Both superb and exuberant, Christian Lacroix’s embroidered evening outfits from the 1990s are as seductive as they are timelessly elegant such as this black woolen coat adorned with gold buttons, the epitome of the Chanel style from 1995-1996. Also from the 1990s, a magnificent coat by Alexandre McQueen in almond green satin and black lace from 1997-1998 is among the most rare and interesting lots of the sale.
