The Ultimate Lifestyle Collection: Huntsman x Sotheby's
LONDON, 30 April 2018 - This May, Sotheby’s will partner with esteemed Savile Row tailor Huntsman & Sons to stage its first online-only luxury lifestyle sale. Featuring an array of bespoke pieces from the private collection of Huntsman owner and financier, Pierre Lagrange, alongside commissioned new works that exemplify the Huntsman lifestyle, this collection reflects Lagrange’s expert knowledge and appreciation of exquisite objects. The sale will offer a view into the life and passions of Pierre Lagrange as a custodian to Huntsman’s unique heritage, which has attracted discerning patrons throughout the ages. Curated to correlate with the different rooms in his home, the collection reflects Lagrange’s enthusiasm for one-off pieces, and his talent for envisioning and commissioning truly extraordinary creations.
Amassed over several years and many continents, each item has been hand-picked from some of the world’s leading companies and artisans, and reflects the ultimate Huntsman lifestyle, from a timeless Cartier watch to cashmere lined cowboy boots, a tweed billiards table to a customised onesie in the Huntsman Burning Man print.
Looking ahead to the auction, Lagrange comments,
“From the clubroom and dressing room, to the garage and grounds, a Huntsman lifestyle can extend to each element of the home. I invite you to discover them in our exclusive online sale, where we celebrate the pieces that form the overall experience of the brand.”
Harry Dalmeny, Sotheby’s UK Chairman, says,
“This sale will see the legacies of two historic Mayfair institutions collide in what will be an exceptional opportunity to acquire bespoke creations from the most exclusive tailor on Savile Row. Appearing in an unprecedented online lifestyle auction, each lot will embody the integrity, craftsmanship and contemporary elegance which has come to define Huntsman, and the style and sophistication sought by our clients. Our online-only sales have soared in popularity over the past year and we’re tremendously excited to inaugurate our first online lifestyle sale with such an esteemed partner.” This will not be the first time that Sotheby’s and Huntsman have joined forces to present the exceptional, having previously teamed up to release ‘Treasures from Chatsworth’. The original 13-part video series exposed the diverse art collection at Chatsworth House and this month won The Webby Awards for a branded series. For more information, click here.
