Members came together for a one-of-a-kind IVY Collecting 101 Salon, Auction Preview & Cocktail Reception as they enjoyed a special preview of “The Future is Now: An Auction of Collectible Sneakers, Urban Art and Objects,” a highly anticipated upcoming sale of the world’s most coveted sneakers. Heritage Auctions will be the first major international auction house to offer collectible sneakers, which will be showcased alongside urban art, skateboard decks, surfboards, luxury handbags, and other contemporary collectibles. Leading the sale is the only complete set of all-white Air Jordans, originally given by Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant when Bryant retired. The set consists of the entire Air Jordan line (I through XXX) specifically made for Kobe Bryant in his size 14.
Before the auction preview, members were joined by Heritage’s Director of Modern & Contemporary Art, Leon Benrimon, for a private discussion on what it means to be a collector in 2017 and how collecting stretches beyond art into contemporary objects. The secondary sneaker market is currently estimated at $6 billion globally.
