The Season’s Hottest Auction

Space Lace, Hollywood’s Favorite Source for Vintage and Contemporary Fashion, to Host Festive Dec. 4 Holiday Auction Online

Glamorous array of classic and modern gowns and accessories includes coveted designs by Chanel, Lanvin, Versace, Valentino, de la Renta, Saint Laurent, Gaultier, and a host of others

From Courtney Love to Lenny KravitzTilda Swinton to Kendall Jenner, fashion-minded stars of stage, screen and runway all know the name “Space Lace.” The San Francisco atelier is the largest and most talked-about West Coast source for vintage designer fashion, jewelry, accessories and even home furnishings.

Three examples of designer fashion and accessories to be auctioned are (L to R) a Scaasi Boutique sequined strapless dress with black net flounce, Jimmy Choo glitter pumps with silver metallic high heels, and timeless Chanel baroque beads.

Previously, the only way to shop from the super-chic establishment was either in person at their 10,000-square-foot private archival warehouse, or via private consultation with Senior Fashion Director John Zakour Hadeed – usually in preparation for a movie role or concert tour. But since the recent launch of their auction division, Space Lace is accessible to fashionistas everywhere, via the Internet. The fully illustrated catalog for their December 4 auction of fabulous vintage couture, ready-to-wear and street fashion is now available to view online. Bidders may bid absentee prior to the auction or live online through LiveAuctioneers.

With the holiday season just around the corner, John Hadeed and his Space Lace team have hand-selected a number of stunning vintage looks for this auction that are both wearable and collectible. They have surprisingly affordable estimates, yet display a level of quality, both in design and construction, that would be nearly impossible to duplicate in today’s marketplace.

To make a dazzling entrance at any gathering, a top choice would be a Scaasi Boutique sequined and floral-patterned black strapless floor-length dress with a black net flounce. In excellent condition, its pre-sale estimate is $800$1,200. As suitable for cocktails as it would be for a fancier affair, an Oscar de la Renta black net and chiffon mini dress originally made for Bergdorf Goodman features generous beading in a diagonal pattern on the bodice. Curled ostrich-feather strands and sequins adorn the net skirt’s three tiered flounces. In fine condition, this versatile dress is estimated at $600$800.
