A signed copy of Kate: The Kate Moss Book ("Fuck You Sandy!! Love Kate x"), a one-of-a-kind Louis Vuitton golden arrow with feathers that belonged to Kim Jones, goodies from both Tilda Swinton's and Chloë Sevingy's magical closets, a custom Nicopanda NABOO bag by Mugler, Kanye West's Nike collaboration Yeezy sneakers, Jefferson Hack's hand-engraved harmonica ("Dazed & Confused Forever"), and a New Museum membership are among the items being auctioned this month by RE/CREATE New York, a campaign pledging to donate 100 percent of its proceeds to the Hurricane Sunday relief efforts of New York Cares.
Part of the digital agency CREATETHE GROUP, RE/CREATE New York — with help from eBay, Spotify, and Rackspace — rounded up more than 50 "creators" to contribute either objects or experiences to bid on, and submit playlists for the public's listening pleasure. The auction is to be held in three ten-day installments: from Friday, January 11 to Monday, January 21; Thursday, January 17 to Sunday, January 27; and Thursday, January 24 to Sunday, February 3. CEO James Gardner said, "We are touched by the enthusiasm of our friends to collaborate for the benefit of a city we hold close to our hearts."
"I was born in New York, so the city is a part of everything I do," said Donna Karan, who donated an autographed Urban Zen papier-mâché bag and a signed copy of her recent book. Roman Coppola, though not born in the city, certainly understands its spirit: "My early memories of being there include White Castle hamburgers. We would always stop on our way back from the airport to pick some up because that was a family tradition and also devil dogs which you would put in the freezer. In my memories, these are things you couldn't get elsewhere." He sent a signed bottle of RC Reserve to RE/CREATE New York, which pairs well with White Castle.
