My friend Eddy send me an email this week, with a link to the Christie’s Online Auctions : The Suzy Menkes Collection. Some spectaculair garments are for sale, specially the very sought after Ossie Clark/Celia Birtwell pieces are rare to be found.
Suzy Menkes is an iconic fashion journalist who is held in the highest esteem by designers, models, fellow journalists and fashion followers around the globe. Comprising just over 90 lots, the collection features an inspiring array of dresses, coats, skirts, jackets and accessories by a cross spectrum of the most revered names in fashion from Ossie Clark and Emilio Pucci, to Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix. All the pieces highlight Suzy’s beliefs that colour and pattern make every day joyous and that clothes are like friends: they have to complement your personality, your hopes and desires.
