"We understand that the seller had been considering selling some items for a while. It's an emotional decision to part with such an incredible collection of clothes but we were able to work with Threadstyling, the private concierge service, to ensure that the sale of these items would be done in the right way," Nicola McClafferty, CEO and co-founder of Covetique, told us. "Covetique has been selling unique pre-owned luxury items to buyers around the world for the last few years and together we were confident we could find the right buyers for these pieces."
"When the items arrived with us it really did feel like we were surrounded by an incredible moment in fashion history," McClafferty said. "These items date primarily from the early Nineties. Karl Lagerfeld had been at the helm for 10 years at that point and was taking Chanel in a really exciting direction, putting a new twist on the Chanel classics - like the amazing classic bouclé suits in bright colours with plastic trim. This seller has been collecting Chanel and other luxury brands for many years - and continues to do so. It's important to the seller that these amazing pieces are passed on to a buyer that really appreciates their history."
