RECORD SALE: Bill Cunningham’s William J hats have struck quite a chord. The 23 creations exclusively available last week on 1stdibs.com through vintage dealer Katy Kane sold out in 10 minutes, setting a record for 1stdibs. While the name of the sole buyer of the hats could not be learned, she is said to be an arts patron and friend of the cycling street-style photographer, and she paid the full price of about $20,000 for the assortment. Her plan is to donate them in Cunningham’s name to a New York City art museum, according to a 1stdibs spokeswoman.
