GOING SOON: If last year’s “auction of the decade” turned out to be beyond the reach of most Yves Saint Laurent’s fans, the second sale promises to be more accessible. Around 1,200 objects from the residences of the late couturier and Pierre Bergé have gone on display at Christie’s in Paris ahead of the auction, due to take place Nov. 17 to 20. Shallow-pocketed collectors looking for mementos can find Art Deco enamel boxes starting at 300 euros, or $448 at current exchange rates, and Louis Vuitton travel bags starting at 500 euros, or $747. The auction is expected to fetch up to 4 million euros, or $6 million, which will be destined for HIV research and the fight against AIDS.
