For more than fifteen years, Artcurial has been honouring the great luxury houses such as Hermès and Chanel, and the most influential designers of their time, such as Christian Dior and Martin Margiela.
The development of the Hermès & Luxury Bags prestige auctions at the Hôtel Hermitage in Monte-Carlo reflects Artcurial’s determination to make the Principality the reference venue for all luxury-related sales. Combined with the Jewellery and Watch Collection sales, Artcurial has created a unique prestige event in Monaco, the place to be for connoisseurs and collectors from all over the world.
The quality of the selection offered and the sale of bags and accessories of impeccable provenance are what make these auctions so successful. The sale of classic Birkin and Kelly models, collectors’ items or special orders, is the scene of often spectacular auctions. The department has achieved some remarkable results: a Birkin 35 in Indigo crocodile was sold for €50,700 in 2018 and a Kelly 40 representing Princess Grace Kelly went for €104,000.
The Online Only sales offer a wide selection of fashion pieces, from Louis Vuitton trunks to Chanel accessories and Yves Saint Laurent creations. These thematic sessions combine historic creations with the latest trends.
