Christie’s to Auction 300 Lots of Catherine Deneuve’s Vintage YSL Dresses

PARIS – The Christie’s auction house in Paris announced on Monday the forthcoming sale of 300 lots of vintage Yves Saint Laurent dresses from a collection belonging to famed French actress Catherine Deneuve.

Deneuve’s collection boasts an array of items collected over the last five decades, a spokesperson for the auction house told EFE.

According to a statement shared by the institution, Deneuve, 75, said she did not part with her collection without an element of sadness, but added it was a celebration of a talented designer who wanted to make women more beautiful.

None of the fashion items were worn by Deneuve in her films during her prolific career working with such French New Wave greats as François Truffaut, but many were worn at ceremonies, including the Cannes Festival.

Half the lots will go up for sale in a classic auction on Jan. 24, 2019, and the remainder will be auctioned online, the auction house said.

There was as yet no overall estimate for the lots, with some specific garments already chalked in within prices ranging between $1,000-$5,000 each (between 880-4,390 euros).

Deneuve decided to part with her atelier dresses because she had to give up her Normandy home, according to the auction house spokesperson.

Christie’s will exhibit the actresses auction lots at their Paris branch between Jan. 19-24, prior to them going under the hammer.

Deneuve was one of Yves Saint-Laurent’s muses and the fashion designer and the actress shared a 40-year lifetime friendship.
