We’ve been buying Tommy Hilfiger’s luxury clothing for years to make ourselves more luxurious. Now you can buy his lamp, bookcase and garden chairs to give your home a similar high-class makeover.
Julien’s Auctions will be auctioning off a number of the famous fashion designer’s personal possessions this week.
Timeline for Auctions
- October 18, 2017
Property from the collection of Tommy Hilfiger will take place this Saturday, 21 October at Julien’s pop up gallery on 805 North La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. The auction will begin at 6pm London time. However, if you’re unable to make it to LA this weekend, Hilfiger hopefuls will also be able to bid in real time via an online auction.
With estimated prices ranging from $100 to $100,000, almost any budget could grab you something once owned by the fashion icon.
The full collection can be viewed here. Alternatively, Julien’s will be holding public viewings each day up until Saturday, with the gallery open from 6pm-1am London time.
Items up for grabs at Julien’s Auctions x Tommy Hilfiger
Julien’s have a wide range of items up for sale this weekend. Tommy Hilfiger’s collection will include a number of famous art pieces, memorabilia and lots of furniture.
If you plan on grabbing yourself a piece of Hilfiger history this weekend, here are a few of the items up for sale to consider:
Andy Warhol paintings
Two Andy Warhol artworks will undoubtedly take centre stage on Saturday, with estimates values upwards of $40,000.
The first piece, a black and red print of American actress Liza Minnelli, is expected to fetch $80,000-$100,000, with the price already sitting at $42,500 ahead of the auction. The second, a portrait of In Cold Blood novelist Truman Capote, has been given a guide price of $40,000-$60,000.
If you’re on a tighter budget, there will also be an Andy Warhol souper print dress up for sale with an estimated price of $800-$1,200.
Marilyn Monroe jeans
This item offers two famous former owners in one. These jeans, once worn by Marilyn Monroe in 1954 Western River of No Return, were purchased by Hilfiger at auction in 1999.
In fact, that auction included three pairs of Monroe jeans. Hilfiger gifted the other two pairs to Britney Spears and Naomi Campbell. You now have the chance to become the third owner of these well-preserved denims… But only if you have $20,000-$40,000 going spare.
The State of Technology This Week
Aubusson carpet of Bessarabian design
We told you there was an odd blend of items. From Marilyn Monroe’s old jeans, we move on to the King Edward VIII’s old carpet.
This Aubusson style carpet once sat in the entrance hall of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s Paris home. Now it can sit in yours for $8,000-$10,000.
Tommy Hilfiger signed Gibson guitar
Tommy Hilfiger’s Gibson guitar is another item that is expected to garner plenty of attention this weekend.
Gibsons can be pretty valuable in their own right. Complete with the signature of Tommy Hilfiger, you would reckon that the price of this lot is out of most people’s budget range. However, the American flag finished guitar isn’t predicted to go for as much as you might think. Julien’s have estimated the item at $2,000-$4,000. Although, with pre-auction bidding currently standing at $1,250, this one could surpass expectations on the day.
If that’s out of your price range, another Hilfiger Gibson, a limited edition SG-X electric which was one ever produced for promotional use, is expected to fetch $800-$1,200.
French grape harvesting buckets
One of the more unusual items up for sale, Hilfiger will be selling off his grape harvesting buckets. These antique French creations have been hand-painted with vineyard inspired designs from St. Emillion, Chateau Doisy-Vedrines and Chateau Pontenil.
Julien’s have set a guide price of $2,500-$3,500, which comes in at a bargain price of $833-$1,166 per bucket.
David Bowie Tarot prints
Hilfiger will also be selling off his collection of original David Bowie tarot cards. Produced in 1975 as part of the eccentric musician’s Tarot series, Hilfiger’s offering includes four of the five cards, each signed by the legendary artist.
You will get Star, Moon, Death and Earth. However, you will have to look elsewhere for the Lovers card to complete the set.
Irish mahogany billiard table
In appearance, there isn’t too much to distinguish this billiard table from any old billiard table. The vintage piece, made from Irish mahogany, comes with an old-style scoreboard, balls and racks.
However, it also comes with a few famous owners to namedrop when you next have someone round for a game of pool. Hilfiger is obviously among them, but it was also once owned by fallen billionaire Patricia Kluge.
