Summer Fashion & Accessories

With examples of unique creations made for discerning nobility, Hindman’s annual Summer Fashion auction is proud to present over 250 lots of high fashion and luxury accessories from the world’s most influential names in fashion, including impressive collections of Hermès, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. Gathered from around the United States, this collection celebrates over one hundred years of high fashion, from hand-made designs of the turn of twentieth century to the highly sought-after and prized Birkin and Kelly bags, made exclusively in France by Hermès. Headlining this auction is a rare and important collection of Parisian haute couture from the Countess Anita von Galen, a German aristocrat and socialite known for her avant-garde sense of style and brilliant entertaining. Born Anita Hengst in 1936 to a renowned banking family in Germany, she married Count Ferdinand von Galen, a member of one of the oldest aristocratic families in Germany in 1966. In the 1970s, the Count and Countess acquired a historic cattle ranch in Southern Arizona, which later became their full-time home. They remain active in Tucson as patrons of the arts and sciences, supporting the Pima Air and Space Museum and the Arizona Historical Society, among many other organizations.
