Chicago-based fine art auction house, Hindman, served up some of the country’s most exclusive designer pieces during its Spring Couture Fashion and Accessories auction. Despite uncertain circumstances and social distancing protocols, the sale was able to continue—remotely. More than 700 registered bidders participated either through live internet bidding or absentee bidding. Featured designers included Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermès. Offerings included a Chanel denim shoulder bag with embroidery and appliqué, a Chanel faux pearl and black bead necklace with flowers, a Chanel black velvet skirt, a 19th Century Louis Vuitton steamer trunk, an 1890-1900s Louis Vuitton trunk, and a Hermès brown leather bag—all surpassing their pre-sale estimates. Hindman has auctions scheduled through the end of June, including its Essential Jewelry sale on June 17 and Summer Fashion and Accessories sale on June 19.
