Christie’s will unveil the world of handbags and accessories for the first time ever at an auction in Asia. International connoisseurs of style and craftsmanship will be able to bid for some of the most sought-after designs from renowned brands.
Building on the success of Christie’s online-only handbags and accessories auctions, the team will be collaborating with top clients and collectors to curate a collection featuring pieces from Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Hermès, Louis Vuitton and many other brands.
President of Christie’s Asia (excluding China) Rebecca Wei comments, “Asian art collectors have always appreciated the craftsmanship and aesthetics of the fine leather goods created by top European houses, so we have decided to organize sales of rare and limited edition accessories in Hong Kong.”
The auction will take place on 24 November 2014 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Collectors in Singapore will be able to join in the auction via Christie’s LIVE.
