The chemistry of the objects in the sale exemplified Japanese cult designer NIGO®'s bold, imaginative and above all distinctive taste in both fashion and art, and triggered excitement across Sotheby’s network of collectors. It fetched HK$35 million / US$4.5 million, doubling the pre-sale high estimates with 100% of lots sold.
Japanese designer, music producer and creative entrepreneur NIGO® commemorates the 25th anniversary of his presence in the fashion world by offering 250 pieces from his personal collection. Gathered in 108 lots, the collectibles, jewellery and watches, luxury goods, design furniture and contemporary art reflect his meticulous taste and hip-hop esthetic. “I wanted to have an estate sale of my own but obviously I couldn’t get any enjoyment from it myself if I was dead. So I decided to do it now.” NIGO®
