Christie’s x HYPE handbags: luxury remix hits $ 2.9 million


Handbags x HYPE: The Luxury Remix, an organized auction that reformulates our understanding of luxury today, fetched a total of $ 2,902,000. The sale ended at 97% by lot and 142% by hammer above the low estimate.

Topping the sale was a pair of in-game, dual signature Air Jordan XIIIs from Michael Jordan’s last regular season game of the Chicago Bullschampionship season, which sold for $ 375,000. Other highlights of the sale included a full collection of Virgil Abloh Nike Off-Whites, which reached $ 62,500, and a full set of Kanye West Adidas Yeezy 350, which reached $ 37,500.

The sale also achieved exceptional results for Hermes pieces, including a rare Bleu Marine, Blanc, Orange Faubourg Sellier Birkin 20, which sold for $ 175,000; a rare Matte White Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Birkin 35, which fetched $ 137,500; and a Braise Porosus Crocodile Birkin 25, which grossed $ 62,500.

Another highlight of the sale was MBD: a bulletproof vest signed DONDA and 1-of-1 TVN, which sold for $ 75,000. This two-component bundle included the physical bulletproof vest worn by Kanye West during his August 2021 listening event and a 1-in-1 NFT, the first to be offered in a luxury sale at Christie’s.

Other notable results were obtained for a Supreme pinball machine, which sold for $ 52,500; a Coco Chanel Bearbrick, which exceeded its high estimate more than three times and sold for $ 35,000; and a Pearl x Supreme five-drum set, which grossed $ 16,250.
