You lucky Londonistas...
The second ever WilliamVintage sale takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday at The Sloane Square Hotel. William Banks-Blaney has collated an astonishing collection of mint condition vintage dresses, coats and sparates, which I somehow feel compelled to coin 'mintage'.
I asked Will for a heads-up on what to expect...
"Everything from Wakely evening dresses to pieces by Dior, Givenchy, Lanvin, Ossie Clark, Pucci, Valentino, and many more designers. Oh, and about a hundred carefully selected 1960s coats, all in pristine condition!".
This is all starting to sound like a dream trolley dash around the V&A!...
£250 gets an original Studio 54 period Stephen Burrows a-line full length dress.
£300ish gets a cashmere and mink 60s Jackie O style swing coat.
£400-600 gets Ossie Clark beauties.
£1200 gets original 63 couture Marc Bohan for Christian Dior!
Damn I wish I could go. Can actually feel a little tantrum welling, I'm not very practiced at them but bet I could throw a spectacular one in a 'cashmere 60s Jackie O swing coat' with matching gloved fists pounding the table! Grrr...
Tuesday 2nd February 12 noon - 8.30pm
Wednesday 3rd February 10am - 8.30pm
The Private Room at The Sloane Square Hotel London, SW1
