You Could Own John Galliano-Era Dior, Thanks to This Archive Auction

Over 500 vintage pieces will be up for grabs.

Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is set to host an archive auction, featuring 500 vintage pieces from John Galliano’s tenure at Dior from 1996 to 2011.

Around 300 of the items were donated by a Russian woman, who has been buying Galliano’s fashion-forward pieces since his debut in fall 1997. Stand-out offerings include a black cheongsam-style evening dress, seen in the first collection, and a 2005 red belted python coat. You’ll also be able to choose from an estimated 100 handbags, which will include the Lady Dior, Gaucho, Malice and Cadillac silhouettes, as well as four Saddle bags – one of which is dressed in denim and embroidered with butterflies. Prices will range from €30 EUR (approx. $36 USD) for smaller accessories, all the way up to around €6,000 EUR (approx. $2,720 USD) for the more exclusive items.

“The sale is very representative of the evolution of Galliano’s style at the house of Dior,” Hubert Felbacq, director of the luxury and vintage department at Cornette de Saint Cyr, told WWD.

Peep the auction collection here. The auction will take place on June 7 at 2 p.m. CET (8 a.m. EST), but you can view the pieces on display at Cornette de Saint Cyr’s headquarters in Paris from June 4-6.
