Preview the Stunning Vintage Designer Pieces From the Decades Auction and Sale


L.A.-based designer resale stores Decades and Decadestwo are selling some spectacular goods at the Kiki de Montparnasse store over the next few days. Tonight at 7 p.m. a private auction of eight dresses from their fashion archives will commence, with bids on each starting at only $100. Tomorrow a two-day sale begins on hundreds of designer items that have been trucked cross-country just for the event; the stock includes shoes and accessories, both vintage and current-season stock, including pieces by Chanel, Givenchy, Balenciaga, and many, many more. With consigners to the renowned stores including Hollywood stars, earnest fashionistas, and even a Bahraini princess, all the stock is high-end, in great condition — many pieces still with store tags attached — and priced at least 60 percent off retail. Click through our slideshow to see all eight dresses that'll feature in tonight's auction, and a selection of the pieces that'll be available in the sale starting tomorrow — if you're quick enough to snag them, that is.
