Tomorrow, Christie's New York will have a multi-owner, multi-designer vintage couture and accessories sale. Per the WSJ: "The sale, estimated to bring in up to $44,000, includes items from Gianni Versace, Rudy Gernreich and Halston, among others. But the sale of seven pieces by Yves Saint Laurent, who died earlier this month, is expected to draw the highest interest." Our favorites: the dazzling YSL cut-out floral necklace from spring/summer 1990, and the tulle and sequin YSL for Dior evening dress circa 1958—first and second photos—each estimated to go for $1,000-$1,500.
