Though Christie’s now ended Winter Auction already provided some of the most amazing bags holiday dreams are made of, there is still an opportunity to find that perfect gift for yourself or someone you love with Christie’s London Live Auction which will take place on December 12th.
As if the online auction wasn’t filled with countless rarities, the 12th of December Christie’s Handbags & Accessories Live Auction features an additional 225 collectible pieces. Though many assume there are only bags in the six figure range (which there are), there are also plenty of bags that you can get for closer to the £1,000 mark too. With 225 pieces, there is something for everyone at a variety of price points.
From leather to special order Hermès bags with diamonds to exotic Chanel bags (which now is a great time to snag exotic Chanel) to Louis Vuitton trunks from 1892 to today, this sale is vast in number of items to the importance of the iconic models from Handbag History included.
Some of my favorite pieces? Check out this Limited Edition Black Dalmatien Buffalo Leather Kelly which has an estimate of GBP 4,000 – GBP 5,000. If that bag goes for that price, it’s a steal and I’ll be rather disappointed if Vlad isn’t one of the bidders.
This Shiny Green Alligator Medium Double Flap Chanel bag is the epitome of luxurious and soon to be even more rare since Chanel will stop producing exotic skin bags.
Many consider the Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Diamond Birkin to be the ultimate holy grail, and this auction has that too.
I don’t own many red bags, but the ones I do I consider to be statement pieces and you can truly not get a more eye-catching piece than this Shiny Braise Porosus Crocodile Diamond Birkin.
