Hedge fund manager Lagrange bought the bespoke tailor with partner and designer Roubi L’Roubi in 2013.

The online auction is marketed as a ‘lifestyle’ sale comprising a collection of items owned by Lagrange as well as items made by the tailor.

Lots to be offered at the buyer’s premium-free online-only auction include cashmere-lined cowboy boots and 18 ct gold Givenchy cufflinks designed by James de Givenchy, which were “inspired by his uncle Hubert de Givenchy who frequently visited Huntsman”. Other highlights of the sale are a tweed billiards table and a customised onesie in the Huntsman ‘Burning Man’ print.

The complete catalogue will be available to view online this week and the auction will take place from May 22-June 1.

Sotheby’s UK chairman Harry Dalmeny said: “Our online-only sales have soared in popularity over the past year and we’re tremendously excited to inaugurate our first online lifestyle sale with such an esteemed partner.”

Art collector Lagrange, who sits on the board or councils at The Serpentine Gallery, Tate, The Met and the V&A Museum, said the “exclusive online sale… celebrates pieces that form the overall experience of the [Huntsman] brand.”
