Exactly one month and one day after Yves Saint Laurent's death (July 2), Christie's will auction off seven pieces of his designs, mostly jewelry, along with some pieces from Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler, Cristóbal Balenciaga and Gianni Versace. You can already place bids for the YSL items on the Christie's site, with the glass mosaic clip-on earrings at left expected to start between $800 and $1,200. Each piece is meant to represent a decade of YSL's work, including a dress he designed in 1958 for Dior and a Rive Gauche sweater jacket from the 70's that looks a lot like one that Jacqueline Onassis wore a lot. We expect this to be the first of many auctions of YSL designs in the coming year - Pierre Berge's already announced that most of Yves' things will be auctioned off before the end of the year.
