YSL Sale Sets Record

Okay, you know how I said that some of the items in the Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge auction catalogue were appraised at affordable?

I meant affordable in a millionaire-ish sort of way.

The auction last week raised 8.9 million euros – that’s a lot more in Canadian dollars, by the way, and three times what Christie’s had anticipated.

The first auction in February, raised 370 million euros for AIDS research.

Guess Berge has a lot more room now…
