Designer clothes, shoes and jewellery up for auction in wake of Bath boutique collapse


Niche fashion labels, including Japanese brand Antipast and cutting edge Turkish designer Umit Unal, will be among a large collection of exclusive designer clothing, worth more than £150,000, due to be sold by online auction after the collapse of a Bath-based boutique.

Other high-end brands that will feature in the auction, due to be held by Eddisons on 11 May, include Belgian premium label Bellerose, Kristensen du Nord, Private 0204, minimalist Italian marque and British designer Robert Carey Williams. Most of the items up for sale are from this year’s spring-summer collections.

A range of shoes and accessories by designers including the iconic Italian footwear brand, Marsell will also appear in the auction, along with designer fragrances by the likes of Goti and Escentric Molecules. Jewellery by sculptural design house Parts of Four and pieces by Chan Luu will also be up for sale.

Kevin McAndrew, director of machinery and business assets at Eddisons, said: “It’s always sad to see a business brought down by financial problems. However the clothes, shoes and accessories that are due to go under the hammer represent a really eclectic – and very extensive – collection of high-end brands.

“Any fashionistas out there should stand a good chance of picking up a bargain or two with some strategic bidding – for many items the opening bids are set as low as £20.”

Viewings of all the items up for auction will be held on Saturday 7 May and Tuesday 10 May in Bath. Further information on the auction is available from Eddisons at
