French screen leg­end CATHER­INE DENEUVE an­nounced she was set to auc­tion off her per­sonal cloth­ing col­lec­tion de­signed by her friend Yves Saint Lau­rent, the late fash­ion icon.

Deneuve, who has just turned 75, said she was sell­ing her coun­try home in north­ern France where she kept a wardrobe full of Saint Lau­rent items and had de­cided to ofload some of the clothes too “not with­out some sad­ness”.

“These are the de­signs of such a tal­ented man who de­signed only to make women more beau­ti­ful,” Deneuve said in a mes­sage shared by the auc­tion house Christie’s, which will han­dle the sale.

Around 150 items, in­clud­ing coats, dresses and ac­ces­sories — some of them unique pieces de­signed for Deneuve — will be auc­tioned at the end of Jan­uary dur­ing Haute Cou­ture fash­ion week in Paris.
