Fans of vintage and rare pieces take note, this auction is right up your alley.
More known today for its perfumes, the Jean Patou house is part of these leading haute couture house until 1987 (this is where Christian Lacroix started out as artistic director).
The treasures awaiting you at Hôtel Drouot date precisely back to that period, and more specifically the haute couture Fall/Winter 1985/86 collection.
We like : the baroque jewelry, gilded and glitzy for sure, smack in the current trend.
The plus : couture pieces labeled Chanel, Dior, Givenchy... at affordable prices.
