    If there were things like fashion demigods and idols, Diana Vreeland would definitely be on the short list. The famed editor was as groundbreaking in her style and POV as the designers she supported. The clothes she wore, suffice it to say, displayed that incredibly rare mixture of timelessness and iconoclasm that she was herself…and 23 years after her death, you can own a piece of her closet.

    The Kerry Taylor Auctions is featuring a few pieces from her wardrobe that were donated by a close friend of Vreeland's. The sale includes such treasures as the safari jacket Vreeland wore in her famous Architectural Digest story and a peacoat still with a Legion d'Honneur ribbon — an honor given by the French State for services to fashion — attached to its collar. More of a tchotchkes person? They're also auctioning off an elegant cigarette holder as well as the backing of one of the director-style chairs she kept in her offices featuring her cherry-red initials.

    The auction will take place in London later this month. Visit the website for more information. In the meanwhile, start plotting your bid in the slideshow ahead.
