I will always consider Audrey Hepburn a fashion icon known for her flawless style. When I learned that she purchased Capezio’s (remember those?) in multiples and in every color it made me realize that she was a woman after my own heart. I love the versatility (and comfort) of the ballet flat and it is a staple in my own wardrobe. In conjunction with Christie’s, her children are auctioning off close to 500 items owned by their mother which include scripts, correspondence, pictures, fashion accessories, and clothing. The online bidding sale is already underway through October 3. The live auction will be held in London beginning on September 27. I am highlighting a few things that will be available but sure to view the live auction catalog for a fun read and a glimpse of what else is yet to come.
It is with great joy that we seek to share her spirit, through this sale…”. –Luca Dotti and Sean Hepburn Ferrer, Audrey Hepburn’s sons
