Running tomorrow for one day, Bonhams of New Bond Street – one of the world’s most esteemed and grand auction houses that deals in fine art, collectables and motor cars – is to host a special kind of auction: a temporary shop for charity Sue Ryder, selling personal items from iconic figures in fashion and film, including Kate MossJean Shrimpton and Stephen Jones.

With the goal of raising vital funds and putting the charity on the map in not-for-profit retail, the auction will boast a decidedly vintage feel, filled to the brim with clothing, accessories and curios from across the eras. Notable pieces include a velvet Georgina Von Etzdorf jacket donated by supermodel and icon of 'Swinging London', Jean Shrimpton, a copy of Rizzoli’s sell-out coffee-table tomeKate by Kate Moss signed by the model herself, and a pink metallic The Vampire’s Wife dress from the designer and model behind the label Susie Bick. 

Plus, more wearable delights will be in store from milliner Philip Treacy, Henry Holland and Instagram favourite’s label Rixo, and you can expect signed scrips, vinyls and books from the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Eddie Redmayne and Sam Smith... Going, going, gone!
