21st of July 2016 at 8AM EDT Auctionata invites all collectors & fashion lovers to step in to the magic world of luxury and haute couture. I am sure they are very please to present the extraordinary items starting back in to the 1950’s. We need to admit that the selected pieces, as incredible timeless classic vintage Kelly crocodile leather bag or watches, with the outstanding character & elegance from Cartier or Chopard, gives us good emotional moment.
And what about the cherry picked jewellery of Tiffany? If you want more you have to admire the accessories of Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and of course don’t forget Chanel.
The highlight of this auction will be the couture dresses created by Madame Grès called “Sphinx of Fashion” or “Queen of Drapery”. A classic green, silk jersey evening dress belongs to one of the jewels of this auction.
Little more about Madame Grès, who was born in Paris, France where she studied painting and sculpturing in the early age, but her interest shifted towards the art of fashion design and clothing making. Grès received her early training in haute couture dressmaking at the fashion house, Maison Premet, a house known for requiring extreme perfection. She dressed most famous personalities of opera or theatre as Jean Giraudoux’s. Later Grès became one of the leading designers of that time designing for many notable figures such as the Duchess of Windsor, Paloma Picasso, Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo.
