Attention YSL Shoppers!!!! Huge sale in aisle 3!
Today starts 3 days of intense non-bargain shopping at the Christies Auction at the Grand Palais in Paris. It's just about everything that YSL and Pierre Berge collected together over the many years they were partners. It's huge and so are the price tags. It's also beautifully rich and deep in it's content. They had exquisite eyes for paintings . From old masters to the modern , they collected their favorites IN DEPTH. It's never one of these and one of those , it was 5 and 10 of each. They needed multiple homes just to make room for their treasures. I saw in my 6 volume catalogue, page after page of the most extraordinary things. The environments in which they both lived were a world of inspiration, comfort and splendor. Every wall, surface and space was inhabited by the things of Dreams.
I will watch over the next 3 days the live auction on my computer ( you can too). Just go to Christies .com and get the simple instructions. I will look forward to seeing many of you there. If you are tenacious , I'm sure you'll come away with a treasure of your own. Bon Chance!
