Margherita Missoni Curates Sotheby’s Special Sale
The online auction room just got a little more chic!
Art x Style 21 Apr 2020

We all love a good art x fashion collaboration, and here’s one to get excited about. Margherita Maccapani Missoni – creative director of M Missoni – has put together the lots for Sotheby’s current Contemporary Curated sale, which is online until April 21. 

Amongst the work selected for the eighth edition of Sotheby’s Contemporary Curated sale are pieces by George Condo, Yayoi Kusama, Fahrelnissa Zeid and Etel Adnan, with Margherita injecting a little bit of colour into our quarantine experiences.

“I selected these works for their contrasting materials and textures”, explains Margherita on the Sotheby’s site, “A play of opposites that I gravitate towards in my own designs.” She joins a long list of stars who have curated sales for the auction house, including A$AP Rocky, Victoria Beckham and Oprah Winfrey. 

Embracing the work-from-home vibe, Margherita selected the pieces via Zoom. Her selected works are super fun, and echo the bright positivity she channels throughout her IG feed and her designs, uplifting us all during these strange times. Basically, Margherita has put together the perfect auction for right now.
