BIG HAUL: The second auction of objects belonging to Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé reached a total of 9 million euros, or $13.4 million, more than doubling an initial estimate of up to 4 million euros, or $6 million. Auction house Christie’s said almost all the 1,200 items were sold at the end of the four-day sale, often beating initial expectations by a surprisingly large margin. An umbrella stand originally expected to fetch up to 500 euros, or $745, went for 109,000 euros, or $162,475. A set of Hermès suitcases estimated at up to 6,000 euros, or $8,943, was sold for 29,800 euros, or $44,420. The proceeds from the auction will be destined to HIV research and the fight against AIDS.
