There was an interesting article last month in The New York Times about "conspicuous consumption" and how the very rich seem to be the arbiters of what determines high-end, luxury taste.  Interestingly, one of the take-away points from this article was that wealthy people are really more interested in the VALUE of this merchandise than the flashy cost issues. 

We at Classic Collections have always prided ourselves on the intrinsic value attached to beautifully made merchandise that is perfectly tailored, uses only the best materials and is timeless in its classic appeal to generations of discerning and careful luxury shoppers.  





Sally Kimball - Naughty or Nice?


Well, we're not going to publicly offer an opinion to that age-old question, but we can say for sure that either way, FUR is the answer!


Yes, indeed, for all those gals out there who have been either naughty or nice or BOTH, we can help you or your special guy pick out just the right

Genteel Genny Mink Stroller

marvelous piece for you!  From luscious vests to cashmere and fur trimmed shawls to ponchos,  jackets and full length coats (several are reversible), we have a selection of pieces that showcases mink, sable, sheared beaver, fox,  lynx, chinchilla, rabbit and other luxurious furs.   



Offering a variety of colors, textures and unique designs, these brand new  and pre-owned fur fashions are stylish, fun and-best of all-affordable!  Consider the period silk velvet wrap trimmed in sleek black fox;  cuddle in chinchilla on a cool evening; 

Very Edgy Katana!

luxuriate in lamb with fox trim, feel foxy in a stunning silver fox jacket, melt into ruffled mink ......ohhhh, we could go on!      


So, whether you've been naughty or nice really isn't the point.  For all those Santa's who are still looking for the perfect gift, and for all those ladies who might be deserving, we think the real question is "Have you been VERY, VERY GOOD?




Especially during the Holiday Season, the thoughts of all of us at Classic Collections turn gratefully to our consignors, clients and friends who have made our progress and success possible.  In this spirit, we want to take this opportunity to say Thank You and send our Best Wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
