Below is the complete museum program for “The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor” by Christie’s.  I picked this up on the last of the 4 dates in Los Angeles at MOCA at the Pacific Design Center this past Saturday.  Please note this is NOT the actual auction catalog, this is only what is currently touring before the big auction in December.  There are 5 complete auction catalogs available at the bottom and they go up to $75 each or the complete boxed set for $300.

This is an 8 page touring catalog printed on card stock.  The original scanned size is 8 3/4″ x 11 1/2″ and aside from cropping a few scanned edges, no further alterations were done to these pages.  These are basically color thumbnails and not high resolution pics, so I’m afraid this is as good as it gets at 1,200 dpi.  I have some better photos elsewhere on this blog, site is at the bottom.

No, I’m not kidding.  I’m not that funny.

You knew it would happen.  The iPad cover from Rodeo Drive.  Everyone’s jumped on the bandwagon with their offerings.  Some are quite nice, some are quite expensive.  It’s no surprise that Hermes would find a way to produce the costliest calfskin cover on the market, coming in at $1,400.  Meanwhile, Coach, of all places, seems to have turned out the nicest zip-around case with a briefcase-style handle for the bargain price of $198.  Enjoy.

Guitar by CHANEL


 

 

Only naked French model with a killer rack could pull this off.  Otherwise, it’s pretty damn Hella-gay for $6,250.  🙂

Chanel vs Chanel

…and Mark Kostabi…


It seems Chanel, Gucci and Hermes have jumped into the bicycle customization world.  These hover in the $4,000-6,000 range unless you want them to use something saucy like crocodile.  🙂  

The finer things….
