POP TO IT: Who said fashion-show invitations had no value? Christie’s in Paris, which is auctioning off a collection of contemporary art owned by designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac on July 3, expects some of his art to fetch from $600 to $20,000. Mind you, they are original artworks. Since the late Sixties, de Castelbajac has commissioned the likes of Keith Haring, Jean-Charles Blais and Pierre et Gilles to create his invitations. Also up for grabs at the auction are several of de Castelbajac’s handpainted dresses and works by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Sandro Chia, and photos by artists Nan Goldin, Andre Serrano and Cindy Sherman.

(Bruce Klatsky, chairman of Calvin Klein’s new parent company, Phillips-Van Heusen Corp., is being honored at the luncheon along with Louis Camilleri, chief executive of Altria.)
