This year’s June auction is one of the most comprehensive Passion for Fashion sales that we have ever put together! We are honoured to not only have been trusted with the Mr Steven Philip Collection Part 2, but the collections of several important owners, many of whom worked closely with the designers, be it through modelling or working with them behind the scenes.

 

The Mr Steven Philip Collection: Part 2

This time last year we presented the Mr Steven Philip collection Part 1, which rightly demonstrated how a lifetime of shrewd collecting and a fastidious eye for detail can result in extraordinary auction results. We are delighted to offer the second chapter of this prestigious collection with over 90 carefully curated lots that will kick off the afternoon session (lots 236-319) of our Passion for Fashion auction on the 11th of June. This instalment continues to reveal Mr Steven Philip’s expertise for important British and international fashion with a focus on John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Bill Gibb.

The Lisa Scales Collection

Lisa Scales was model and muse for John Galliano and walked in many of his most memorable runway shows. We are pleased to present 15 lots (nos. 207-221) from Lisa’s personal collection that she acquired during her long friendship with the designer, in some cases, Galliano giving items from his own collection so that she could complete a look.

 The Trino Verkade Collection

Trino Verkade was Alexander McQueen’s first employee in 1994 and continued to work with him in various roles until his death in 2010. She worked as a consultant for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011 and is now CEO of ‘Sarabande’; the charitable foundation set up by Alexander McQueen in 2006. Due to her close connection to both the designer and the brand, we are delighted to offer over 50 lots (nos. 72-124) spanning rare early showpieces such as an ensemble from ‘Highland Rape’, and a Givenchy haute couture by McQueen dress from Spring-Summer 1997, to powerful later works such as sequinned Isabelle blow portrait dress from ‘La Dame Bleue’ S/S 2008, as well as key pieces form his final shows ‘Plato’s Atlantis’ and ‘Angels and Demons’.

Isabella Tonchi

Isabella Tonchi started as a young designer in her late teens. She enjoyed the punk scene as a teenager and fell in love with Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren's philosophy and creations. In the 1980's she started working as a fashion designer for Fiorucci and in the early 90's for Romeo Gigli, Miu Miu, Calvin Klein and Versace. Part of her collection is represented in this auction in lots 341-351.
