If you visit certain high-profile vintage stores, you could be forgiven for thinking that shopping for vintage is an expensive business. Well, it doesn’t have to be – in fact, you can pick up some designer vintage bargains at the Christies 20th Century Fashion and Accessories auction.
Every era is covered, from early period fashions through to 60s and 70s classics, along with plenty of bags and add-ons to match – all with matching designer labels. But there’s bad news for the blokes – virtually every lot is women’s fashion, with the exception of a few ties and a rather smart smoking suit from 1900.
If you have some cash to spare, you might want to invest in these two mini dresses (pictured) from the short lived, Beatles-funded Apple Boutique, which was only open from December 1967 to July 1968. They’re estimated to make between £800 – £1,000.
The auction takes place at the South Kensington branch of the auction house on 7th June 2007.
