Liz Bailey - Designer Sale Specialist 

A Chanel dress ring

Lot 2 - A Chanel dress ring £50-100

"This lovely little ring has already garnered a lot of pre-sale interest, unsurprisingly so as it features an almost identical design to pieces in Chanel's AW/20 collection. Offered complete with maker's pouch and box, together with the option of buying the accompanying necklace in lot 3, this is an ideal set for anyone wanting to start their designer jewellery collection."


A Balenciaga Part Time Handbag,


Lot 21 - A Balenciaga Part Time Handbag, £260-360

"Balenciaga certainly seems to be the designer of the moment, and this beautifully bright example of a 'city' bag instantly caught my eye. A practical design, in a really stand-out colour, this bag has enough room to fit all of my essentials and more!" 


A Hermes Bearn wallet, circa 1998,


Lot 22 - A Hermes Bearn wallet, circa 1998, £420-520

"Crafted in a tan epsom leather, this piece would compliment absolutely any colour scheme. Although bearing a date stamp for 1998, this wallet is in super condition, and comes complete with maker's pouch and box."


Amelia Bailey - Designer Sale Assistant

A Chanel Straw Canvas Shoulder Bag, circa 1989-91


Lot 64 - A Chanel Straw Canvas Shoulder Bag, circa 1989-91 £760-860

"I have picked this bag with summer in mind, I love finding unique and rare Chanel bags - and for me the hessian 'straw' canvas paired with the iconic soft quilted leather makes a truly special piece. The small to medium size of this bag makes a subtle statement combined with the stitched CC logo to the base which is a signature feature of a 90's Chanel bag."




Lot 72 - A Dior Compact Saddle Wallet £200-250

"Vintage Dior is highly sought-after right now, and this would make a great addition to anyone's collection with an injection of the brand's Diorrisimo canvas. Taking the reins from the iconic Dior Saddle bag, this would make the ideal stocking filler idea in the run up to Christmas!"


A Yves St-Laurent vintage front logo clutch


Lot 83 - A Yves St-Laurent vintage front logo clutch £200-250

"This is a really wearable and sleek clutch bag that can be dressed up or down. The chevron detail, and the classic YSL logo already make this bag special, however, the inside monogram canvas really takes this bag to the next level and is something I personally haven't seen before from YSL. Such an easy bag to pair with any outfit, which makes this bag my 'grab and go' for those special occasions."


Sharon Sparrow - Head of Administration


 A Yves Saint Laurent Mini Bowling Bag,


Lot 108 - A Yves Saint Laurent Mini Bowling Bag, £460-560

"I love this stylish mini bag, personally I don’t always want to carry around a large bag and like to feel free.  I love this particular bag with its subtle colour meaning I could wear it with pretty much anything – less is definitely more."



A Hermes Lydie Shoulder Bag, circa 1985,


Lot 96 - A Hermes Lydie Shoulder Bag, circa 1985, £1,800-2,200.

"This bag is just fabulous and ticks all the boxes for me, I love the classic vintage look along with the bold gold ‘H’ clasp.  I can imagine this classic bag sitting on my shoulder making a subtle statement, there is nothing more to say with this bag other than I would love to own it."


A Louis Vuitton Cerise Epi Neverfull MM handbag, circa 2013


Lot 15 - A Louis Vuitton Cerise Epi Neverfull MM handbag, circa 2013 £770-870

"I like to wear a lot of black so to have a big splash of colour that really stands out works for me. You can’t beat a Louis Vuitton bag and I can imagine taking this bag out with me on a shopping trips with all my essentials."
