Daphne Guiness’s eccentric and bold style has made her a true icon of British fashion. Today, couture pieces from her brilliant personal collection (from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Balenciaga) go up for auction at Christies. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Isabella Blow Foundation. From a demure Chanel jacket to enormous platforms (Guiness’s signature footwear) here are a few standouts from the collection. The full collection can be seen here.
