Christie’s Handbags x HYPE: The Luxury Remix Achieves $2.9M

Handbags x HYPE: The Luxury Remix, a curated auction that reformulates our understanding of luxury today, achieved a total of $2,902,000. The sale was sold 97% by lot and 142% hammer above the low estimate.

Leading the sale was a pair of game-worn and dual signed Air Jordan XIIIs from Michael Jordan’s last regular-season game of the Chicago Bulls’ championship season, which sold for $375,000. Other highlights from the sale include a complete collection of Virgil Abloh Nike Off-Whites, which achieved $62,500, and a complete set of Kanye West Adidas Yeezy 350s, which realized $37,500.

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

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

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