The high-end designer styles of Academy Award-winning actresses may seem difficult to replicate or attain. But, as it turns out, there’s an app for that.
After spending years in the basement of her recently sold 13,796-square-foot Venice home — nicknamed the Fortress — 16 items from Anjelica Huston’s personal collection of 1970s and '80s designer wear went up for sale to the public Thursday morning via Reissued, a new app for Apple devices that creates an online market for vintage clothing, furniture, and art.
“It’s not every day you can get clothing from an icon,” said Cameron Silver, co-owner of Decades boutique and a vintage fashion expert featured on Bravo’s “Dukes of Melrose.” “Anjelica knew it was time to purge her closet. She was a model and always a lover of fashion. It’s a lifetime of looks.”
Huston’s collection includes skirts, dresses, hats, and jackets from designers such as Emmanuel, Anon and Richard Tyler. Buyers are just a few clicks away from instantly purchasing the looks, which range in price from $350 to $1,800. According to Silver, the collection has a “counter-cultural, Cali cool girl edge” that remains relevant among today’s styles.
“They are works of art that should be seen, which is why I have saved them for all these years,” Huston said in a statement. “The thing that excites me most is the idea of seeing beautiful young women in my vintage gowns.”
The 10-day sale begins at 10 a.m. PDT.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
