Susan and Karl: Important Chanel Fashion Jewelry from the Collection of Mrs. John H. Gutfreund

Sale Overview

Mrs. Gutfreund’s deep appreciation of French culture extended to a love of couture and in particular designs from the house of Chanel. Susan Gutfreund was a friend to many of the most celebrated couturiers. She shared a close friendship with Karl Lagerfeld who personally gave her an incredible selection of costume jewelry made for the Chanel runway. Intricately designed and incredibly rare, these unique jewels are pieces of fashion history created as part of a vision for Lagerfeld’s iconic years at the helm of Chanel. Many of these pieces are prototypes, never before offered for sale or seen by the public. The striking, storied jewels of Mrs. Gutfreund reflect her cultured taste and trained eye.

Viewings are by appointment only, starting 20 January. To make an appointment or for more information, contact Nathalie Ferneau, NFerneau@christies.com
