May 2007

Online bidding war is set to Rocket Man!

May 3rd, 2007 Luckner’s, London’s most fashionable online auctioneers of vintage fashion, vintage accessories and jewellery is celebrating Elton John’s 60th year by consigning a rocky suit owned and worn by Elton. The black wool and rubber jump suit from the 80s, designed by Kansai Yamamoto, is a complete one off and set to start a bidding war between fans and collectors, suspected to reach into five figures. Elton’s fashion across the decades has left the crowd revelling and eager to taste the next phase of his ever changing look and famous collection of glasses. Now the UK public can have the chance of owning something worn by the legend and designed by Japan’s most famous designer, with bids starting from £1,500 at and running until May 16th 2007.

Like a blue Cortina, Elton John is one of the UK’s most treasured possessions. Any item of clothing owned by him is a coveted piece of fashion to most collectors and many of his fans. The suit was designed in the 80s by Kansai Yamamoto who designed all of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust outfits of the era. With an estimated worth of over £2,000 the suit is a true reflection of Elton’s personality, style and aura and will make the final owner feel like doing the crocodile rock all the way down the yellow brick road! To be in the running to own the incredible suit, log onto, easily set up an account in moments and get bidding for a piece of fashion and music history!

Luckner’s ( is the first internet auction house in the UK responding to the growing public interest in vintage designer fashion, antique furniture and collectables as an investment or to enjoy – those who are now looking for something more special, a one off maybe, and something you wont find being worn by ‘next door’. Luckner’s has taken the traditional auction industry apart and put it back together the way that modern consumers need it to be – quick, accessible and enjoyable.

Customers are able to view, bid and buy through the safe website – and can also visit the showroom in London.
