We, at Mimi Berlin, visited the local thriftstore the other day. On sale was a collection of caketoppers, vintage, bridal caketoppers. Amongst a group of about 10 plastic figurines, there were ugly but also a nice one; just as in real life. The bride by herself, she is our favorite, and probably made in the sixties. She looks like a doll from the Thunderbirds. We also fancy the happy couple, they look very satisfied and happy. The rest of the caketoppers seem rather uninspired.

“Tomorrow, July 8, Sotheby’s Paris, in association with Kerry Taylor Auctions, will stage its first auction of Haute Couture, which gathers together 150 items from the private collection of Didier Ludot. Didier Ludot, France’s greatest “fashion antiquarian”, surely needs no introduction: his legendary Palais-Royal gallery is a must for any fashion-lover visiting Paris. Specialising and dealing in vintage fashion for more than forty years, he has carefully selected and set aside many of the most important pieces he has handled for his own personal collection.” (read/see sothebys.com)
