If you’ve always dreamed of following in Catherine Deneuve’s footsteps, here’s a golden opportunity! The cinema icon has decided to get rid of no less than 125 pairs of shoes which will be auctioned off by Artcurial from September 7 to 14. An event that will take place online and the proceeds of which will go straight to Restos du Cœur.
“Les Restos du cœur warmly thank Catherine Deneuve for supporting our association and its social missions, which are always more numerous and essential in this difficult period for so many people. This unprecedented auction, thanks to the donation by Catherine Deneuve of part of her collection of shoes, worn in the great moments of her film life, will allow everyone to participate in this gesture of solidarity. Thank you for your commitment, ”said Patrice Douret, President of the Les Restaurants du Cœur – Les Relais du Cœur association, in the press release for the sale.
For all budgets
On the menu, heels, boots, sandals, and other thigh-high boots branded Louboutin, Yves Saint-Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga or Prada, some of which were worn by Catherine Deneuve during memorable events. And while the auction will start at just 30 euros for some pairs, the dream is within the reach of all budgets even if some coins could be snapped up to several hundred euros. The size ranges from 37 to 39.5, the size varying depending on the country.
What to buy “a little dream” while helping “those who need it most”, welcomes Clara Vivien, fashion & luxury accessories specialist at Artcurial. So if you are interested, visit the Artcurial website on September 7. Perhaps you will find something to start the start of the school year on the right foot!
