Refinery 29 has teamed up with Mercy Vintage Now in Oakland, California to auction off the actual real-life clothes of Kim Gordon.
As well as the novelty factor of wearing Kim’s sweated-on clothes, there’s the added thrill factor that some of them were worn in Sonic Youth videos and on-stage at various gigs. It goes without saying that Kim’s taste is pretty awesome – there’s early Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu and Marni in there, so even if you’re not a hardcore SY fan there’s still some fashion history to invest in.
The sale starts online this Saturday 1 September 1 at 8am PST – set your alarms, put the date in your diary and ready your credit card.
Clockwise from top left, here’s some of what’s up for grabs;
1) Mayle Tan dress, Ann Demeulemeester boots, Andrea Pfister bag
2) Cosmic Wonder dress, Marc Jacobs shoes
3) Marni dress, Marc Jacobs boots, Philip Treacy hat
4) Mayle dress, Ann Demeulemeester boots, Oscar De La Renta bag
