'I abhor the American idea of starting with a tabula rasa every few years and getting rid of everything. When I buy something, I intend to keep it for ever' - Lee Radziwill

An opportunity to own a piece of the glamorous life and refined eye of an American style icon. She was one of Capote's Swans, and muse to Andy Warhol, and Giorgio Armani. Her work as an interior designer prolific. She collaborated closely with Renzo Mongiardino on her widely celebrated homes in London and Oxfordshire. She explained that she liked to create rooms that were primarily traditional and then add touches of bizarre and delicious. Objects from her homes in New York and Paris will be offered at the Christie's sale. 'Lee's taste and style stand alone as a global symbol of sophistication and connoisseurship,' says Christie's Chairman Marc Porter, 'embodying the elegance of a more glamorous era.'
