With the auction season upon us (and bolstered by an outstanding showing at Sotheby's Contemporary Art Evening Sale last night in New York--view the results here), I was reminded of the sale that rocked the world of Chinese art a year ago. Above is the most expensive Chinese work of art to ever sell at auction. The 16-inch vase sold for $83 million, 40 times greater than its estimate.

The sale inspired the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection by Greek designer Mary Katrantzou, now available at Neiman Marcus. I'm convinced that good things would happen while wearing the Mixed-Print Jersey Dress ($790).
