We asked Kristine to sketch her favorites from our upcoming April 8 auction: Spring Fashion & Accessories: 1800–2015.
Lot 108: I can totally picture someone wearing this over a slip dress or with satin pants and floating through a cocktail party.
Lot 434: This Oscar De La Renta dress and jacket combination immediately caught my eye. The vibrant color, fur trim, and gold embellishments are so fun.
Lot 534: The varying textures add thoughtful complexity to this black Versace dress.
Lot 543: It screams Versace with the gold hardware and oversized Medusa medallion.
Lot 330 & 334: I love how over the top these crystal Judith Leiber clutches are.
Lot 483: Who doesn’t want a little sparkle on their feet to complete their outfit?!
