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!
