Space Lace, San Francisco's exciting new auction house for vintage fashion, to debut with Sept. 6 sale
1980s Gianni Versace emerald green silk satin bias-cut gown with flared fishtail hem. Estimate $400-$800.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- At the intersection of 1930s glamour and trendsetting street style, there’s Space Lace, a new San Francisco auction house specializing in vintage fashion, jewelry, accessories and interior furnishings. Space Lace is the recently launched auction division of Torso Vintages, an atelier with a twist in the city’s historic Jackson Square. Under one roof, high fashion clothing and accessories created in-house share the spotlight with curated vintage apparel, jewelry and interior furnishings selected for auction under the Space Lace banner. The company’s auction debut is set for Sunday, September 6, with absentee and Internet live bidding available exclusively through LiveAuctioneers.

With its online-auction format, Space Lace is the latest extension of Senior Fashion Director John Zakour Hadeed’s aesthetic vision aimed at bringing together the future of fashion – “space” – and revered heritage creations – “lace” – from legendary designers of the past. Whether the buyer is seeking the classic couture of Chanel, Dior and Schiaparelli or the contemporary looks of Gaultier, Galliano and McCartney, selections by all of the “greats” are waiting to be discovered at Space Lace.

Hadeed, with his encyclopedic knowledge or fashion, is well known and respected in the film, TV and music industries. He personally dressed Tilda Swinton in Adrian, Michelle Rodriquez in Thierry Mugler, and Courtney Love in countless vintage looks. He has also worked with Grace Jones and longtime style-originator and friend Lenny Kravitz. His own original creations have been worn by supermodel Kendall Jenner and many other celebrities.

Just a few of the classics to be auctioned are: a Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel spring 2000 evening gown with paillette bodice, estimate $1,000-$5,000; a 1960s Christian Dior wool suit in antique pink, originally sold by Saks Fifth Avenue, $1,500-$3,000; and a 1980 Yves Saint-Laurent matelasse jacket paired with straight-leg Astuces-Paris pants, $300-$500.

For an edgier “street” look, the coolness factor is off the charts with a John Galliano for Dior “Rasta” hoodie, $600-$800; Chanel fantasy high-sneaker boots, $500-$1,000; and Dolce & Gabbana rose-print runway baseball jacket, $300-$1,200.

Other head-turners include a 1995 Todd Oldham “Batman Forever” rhinestone zebra-patterned green suit, $1,000-$2,000; a 1997 Tom Ford for Gucci patent-leather “dog harness” gown, $1,000-$2,500; and a Jean Paul Gaultier Soleil graphic-striped strapless swimsuit – a beach bargain estimated at $150-$200.
