One of Montreal’s famed auction houses is holding a particularly fashionista moment: a haute couture vintage auction, featuring Hermès (ties for men too!), Christian Lacroix, Armani, Burberry et al. The clothing is, of course, in excellent condition, as are the shoes, jewellery, and amazingly beautiful (and very collectible) Hermès scarves, not to mention great coats (men and women) and jackets. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are are a few!
