Attention: Gucci Collectors
Gucci has announced the launch of “Gucci Collector: Presented by Christie’s,” the first-ever online destination for appraising vintage Gucci products that’s actually certified by the classic Italian house. This unique partnership combines Gucci’s rich heritage with Christie’s skilled expertise as one of the world’s most esteemed auction houses. The result: A highly specialized online hub for Gucci collectors and aficionados from all over the globe. More deets after the jump…. “Within a 2 to 4 week period, “Gucci Collectors” will receive an auction estimate, prepared by Christie’s Director of Fashion and Textiles, Patricia Frost and her team of costume specialists in collaboration with the Gucci Archive Department. Collectors will also be informed as to whether the product would be appropriate either for an upcoming Christie’s vintage sale, or if it might be of interest to either Gucci or Christie’s from an historical perspective. Participation in sales is purely optional for owners seeking appraisal, while prospective buyers can be assured that the products have received an official appraisal from one of the world’s most respected auction houses. ” Hot damn, we’re on it!
