Everything Must Go: A Fashion-Forward Virtual Tag Sale
There’s a great scene in Bob Fosse’s unforgettable 1979 film All That Jazz in which Ann Reinking performs the toe-tapping track “Everything Old is New Again.” That’s exactly how I’ve always felt about my assortment of vintage clothing and exceptional artworks, all of which have been cherry-picked over a thirteen-year time frame residing in Paris, Los Angeles, and Melbourne. And now it’s all up for grabs, as I’m preparing to depart Australia and set up afresh in L.A. Yup, I’m #goingbacktoCali, folks! It’s a new age, it’s a new dawn, and everything must go. Annabel Dexter-Jones enquired about vintage Annie Hall poster earlier this week and described the happening as “a virtual yard sale.” When I asked Caroline Issa for her impression, she replied with the following: “Your heart races a little when someone with style, an eye for the icons, and fabulous taste decides to dispose of some of her treasures–and that’s what happened when you started putting up things to sell. I would have bought it all, had I not had my own storage issues.” Think Tom Ford, Y-3, Junya Watanabe, YSL, Céline, Peggy Moffitt x Comme des Garçons, Christopher Kane, Tabitha Simmons, Olympia Le-Tan, and more. Works available from Urs Fischer and Chris Johanson to Henry Chalfant, Beth Hoeckel, and Anthony Burrill, plus vintage movie posters galore. It’s a win-win situation that ensures that whether it’s LL Cool J or Notorious B.I.G. singing the famous track, life back in the City of Angels is going to be very exciting.
