Hoping to snag some of Nicolas Ghesquiere's work while you still can before he leaves Balenciaga behind forever on the 30th? Some of his most rare, limited-edition pieces will be up for auction tomorrow. You won't be able to wear them, though, because they're stuffed animals.

Hoping to snag some of Nicolas Ghesquiere's work while you still can before he leaves Balenciaga behind forever on the 30th? Some of his most rare, limited-edition pieces will be up for auction tomorrow.

You won't be able to wear them, though, because they're stuffed animals. Ghesquiere was among several designers to design Pudsey Bears for a charity auction at Christie's to benefit Children in Need.

Ghesquiere designed not one but five Balenciaga bears, each of which is covered in a different print from his memorable spring 2008 'Flora' collection. They're actually pretty gorgeous.

The bears will all be auctioned off tomorrow, November 15 at a gala at Christie's in London hosted by Katie Grand. Tomorrow also happens to be my birthday, so if you were wondering what to get me, here ya go!
