Au­drey Hep­burn’s per­sonal col­lec­tion at Christie’s ex­hi­bi­tion and auc­tion

Ever won­der what’s like to take a glimpse in­side Au­drey Hep­burn’s wardrobe? Christie’s will present some of the fash­ion leg­end’s most trea­sured pos­ses­sions at a flag­ship auc­tion in Lon­don on 27 Septem­ber, while Hong Kong fans can pay homage to the Os­car-win­ning star dur­ing the tour ear­lier in the month. The sale is en­dorsed by Hep­burn’s sons Luca and Sean, with the hope to al­low their beloved mother’s “ever-grow­ing base of ad­mires…to share her spirit.”

Among th­ese 400 items are the iconic Burberry trench coat and a colour­ful se­lec­tion of bal­let pumps. Aside from the ac­tress’ el­e­gant sta­ples, the ac­tions will also fea­ture a lighter en­graved “For My Fair Lady” – which she re­ceived from that film’s art di­rec­tor, her own an­no­tated work­ing copies of film scripts from Break­fast at Tiffany’s and per­sonal let­ters among the oth­ers.
