Celebrating his 25th anniversary in the fashion world, designer NIGO sold items from his personal collection in Hong Kong last night (October 6), led by a set of Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup prints.
The set of 10 prints - which sold for $407,450 - were offered among pop culture collectibles, jewellery, and luxury goods, reflecting NIGO's "meticulous taste and hip-hop aesthetic" said Sotheby's.
Following was Untitled (Painting and Doll) by New York street artist and designer KAWS, who first achieved fame through reworking city street advertisements, before becoming a hit with collectors for his limited edition art toys.
The 2001 work made $283,668.
A Richard Mille tourbillon watch in white gold and set with diamonds sold for $190,831.
The Swiss company has found success with celebrities and sports stars, with Tennis' Rafael Nadal and Formula One's Felipe Massa both sponsored by the company, and hip-hop stars such as Jay-Z seen sporting its watches.
Several of the furniture items in the sale came from France's Jean Prouve, a renowned architect and designer collected by the likes of Brad Pitt and Larry Gagosian.
The top-selling item from Prouve was a bench with a sculpture of Japanese animation icon Astro Boy lain across it, which was created for the Atomic Studies Centre in Marcoule, France in 1955. It sold for $128,940.
