Liz Bailey

A Christian Dior Lady Dior MM bag, circa 2003, the black leather exterior with silver tone stud embellishment with double top handles and an optional shoulder strap, maker's logo charm, top zip fastening and one interior side pocket, serial no. 09-MA-0053 With maker's care guide, dust bag and authenticity card.

Lot 135 - A Christian Dior Lady Dior MM bag. £900-1,400.

As soon as I saw this beautiful piece I knew that it would be one of my favourite lots in the sale. One of two Lady Dior bags in the auction, this black leather bag is toughened up with a silver studded pattern that mimics the unique quilted design featured in all of this style of bag. An iconic designer bag in its own right, the Lady Dior by Christian Dior was released in 1995. A perennial design for Christian Dior, the Lady Dior shot to popularity thanks to its high profile patrons, most notably Princess Diana. In fact, the bag was re-named the 'Lady Dior' in honour of Diana, as a symbollic gift ordered by the first lady of France. 

This lot is a unique and modern take on a classic handbag, in highly wearable and versatile colours. Yet another bonus of this gorgeous piece is that we are also selling lot 136, a matching Christian Dior wallet

A silk blazer by Gucci, the silk zebra print blazer with mother of pearl buttons, size 48.

Lot 70: A silk blazer by Gucci. £50-70. 

How great is this silk blazer jacket by Gucci? In a timeless zebra print that is interspersed with the maker's logo and finished beautifully with mother of pearl buttons, lot 70 makes an eye-catching addition to any wardrobe. A versatile unisex design, I would wear this jacket oversized and cinched at the waist to bring some luxury to an all-black ensemble.  A stunning piece that screams summertime, lot 70 is offered at a steal of £50-70.

 A Hermès "Grand Fonds" silk scarf by Annie Faivre, circa 1992, the yellow, orange, blue and purple pattern depicting exotic fish, signed Hermès. With maker's box.

Lot 37: A Hermès "Grand Fonds" silk scarf by Annie Faivre. £150-250. 

Breaking with my monochromatic theme in spectacular style, lot 37 is possibly one of the brightest and most vibrant Hermès scarves I have ever come across! Complete with maker's signature orange box and in great condition, this beautiful piece is designed by one of Hermès' most celebrated collaborators. Annie Faivre worked with Hermès for thirty six years, creathing a plethora of beautifully detailed scarves with a huge range of subjects, from this marine scene, to the circus, to jewellery, to puppets, the list goes on! Yellow not your colour? We have no less than eight Hermès scarves in this sale, with a colour and pattern to suit all styles.

A Montblanc Starwalker Black Mystery Ballpoint Pen, the black resin body heightened with laser-engraved surface, the cap with clear resin finial enclosing the Montblanc logo, serial CT1653565, 13.5cm.

Lot 127: A Montblanc Starwalker Black Mystery Ballpoint Pen. £100-200. 

Our Summer Fashion Sale also features an array of stylish and sought-after luxury accessories for gents. Included in this sale are pens, with two fantastic Montblanc pieces on offer. Each in fantastic condition, it is certainly difficult to choose a favourite. This striking ballpoint however boasts a wonderful modern design in that classic black and chrome finish. 

A Hermès Jumbo bracelet, the black swift calfskin braided strap with silver-tone hook fastening, signed Hermès.

Lot 62: A Hermès Jumbo bracelet. £90-140. 

The Hermès leather bracelets look great on, especially stacked alongside a luxury timepiece. I would wear this alongside my stainless steel Omega with black dial as a complementary and eye-catching accent. 

A Louis Vuitton monogram garment cover, circa 2001, the maker's monogram coated canvas with smooth leather trim, rolled vachetta leather handle, zip fastening, gold-tone hardware and luggage tag, serial no. SP1021.

Lot 144: A Louis Vuitton monogram garment cover. £450-550

An opulent way to travel with your suits, this Louis Vuitton garment cover makes a wonderful investment piece that can be used year after year. 

 

Jo Thomas

A Burberry trench coat, the cream canvas trench coat with cream leather sleeves and oversized silver tone buttons bearing maker's name, size 10.

Lot 61: A Burberry trench coat. £150-250.

The Burberry trench coat is a 'must' for any wardrobe. An institution in itself, the Burberry trench was developed by Thomas Burberry in the early 20th Century, and worn by soliders in the First World War. A true classic, the Burberry trench never dates with a timeless appeal that can be worn with nearly any outfit. This summery take on the trench features a canvas body with cream leather sleeves.

A Fendi Bifold Wallet, the light blue calf leather exterior with gold-tone hardware and purple smooth leather interior.

Lot 95 - A Fendi Bifold Wallet. £140-240.

I just love the simplicity of this Fendi wallet. That beautiful pale blue hue is perfect for summer and matches perfectly with current pieces in my wardrobe! Accented with a purple lining, the pastel hues of this piece are ideal for bringing a pop of colour into my handbag.

A suit by Helena Stern, comprising a mid-length skirt and jacket in pink, blue and yellow woven wool with gold tone buttons, size 42.

Lot 2: A suit by Helena Stern. £70-100.

Lot 2 in the Summer Fashion Sale is a stunning multi-coloured suit by Helena Stern of Paris. The heavenly pastel colours in this checked suit are just beautiful, and the suit is finished with gold buttons detailed with horse bits. The perfect suit that can be worn in a range of ways. Either style together for a formal occasion, or wear separately to dress up your everyday wardrobe. I would wear the lovely jacket with blue jeans, and the skirt with a simple white shirt.
