Imagine walking down the street—or Fifth Avenue—with a new treasure swinging with each step. You’ve just won a striking piece from the Christie’s Handbags & Accessories summer auction, and you’ve had it delivered to your door (or picked it up in NYC!).
The online-only summer auction, which runs from June 13 to 22, is incredibly accessible. Whether you’re auction shy or a paddle-wielding veteran, don’t miss your chance to procure a handbag from the comfort of your home—or at least browse the collection. The Christie’s bidding system works smoothly on laptops, tablets, and mobiles. If you’re in the area (or willing to travel) and want to size them up in person, viewing dates for the handbags in NYC are June 16 to 22 at Rockefeller Center. The collection, with a focus on summer hues and limited edition pieces, is sparkling from top to bottom.
Now, in the quiz below, we will ask you a series of “this or that” scenarios made up of bags from the Christie’s auction, and you can vote in each of the polls. Remember, this is all for fun! Compare and contrast your answers to other fashionistas’ (for more information on each of the bags, you can click the images and links…).
