Chinchilla Top Lot for movie stars
16 April 2016Auction
Whenever we think of the golden age of cinema in Hollywood, we immediately imagine the red carpet. Movie stars like Rita Hayworth, Vivien Leigh and Marilyn Monroe were draped in beautiful fur coats and bathed in the flashing lights from the photographers surrounding them.
The Chinese / Hong Kong film market is one of the largest in the world. Therefore, it is only natural that the elaborate fur fashion that draped the movie starlets in Hollywood also grace the actresses in China or Hong Kong now, and that is what is intended for the Chinchilla Top Lot that was sold during the April auction at Kopenhagen Fur to the brand Wai May Fur & Fashion Company LTD.
Mr Wong purchased the Chinchilla Top Lot for the brand, which is located in Hong Kong. The store is extremely exclusive and does not produce retail goods. It specializes in custom-made fur garments for, among others, the movie stars in Hong Kong / China.
Mr Wong, who has worked in the skin trade for 30 years, explains that he is pleased with the purchase.
- This is the first time I have purchased a Chinchilla Top Lot. I have bought a mink Top Lot before, but never this one. The skins are of a unique and singular quality, so we are very happy, he says.
The Chinchilla Top Lot was purchased for 620 DKK.
