Bill Cunningham was such a treasure! These THREE BILL CUNNINGHAM, "WILLIAM J", HATS, c. 1950-1960s sold at our fall auction in New York last year. And I gotta say this year’s auction is shaping up to be just as exciting!! I can’t let the cat outta the bag yet but we’ve begun work on the upcoming catalog and will be releasing the first images in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

That feeling when you don't want to talk to someone at the party but luckily you're wearing the most fabulous turtle shell.
