Random Alert! Suzy Menkes To Auction Off Wardrobe

By  |  0 Comments

Didn’t see this coming…Christie’s London will be auctioning off Suzy Menkes‘ personal wardrobe in July. “The Suzy Menkes Collection” will include 80 items from her personal closet from designers including Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Paul Smith. “I went to Christie’s and asked Pat Frost, international specialist and director of vintage couture, handbags, and luggage, to evaluate my collection,” she wrote in an essay on Harper’s Bazaar‘s website. “I had admired the sale she handled for muse and icon Daphne Guinness last year. And I wanted an expert who had a deep knowledge of fashion history—someone who was interested in putting my clothes in context, not just emptying my closets. We decided on an online sale, to reach a global fashion world.” The reason for the sale? She needs more space in her closet. (Holla!) The auction will start on July 11th, runs through July 22nd, and will be available at
