"Impressions" and iconic sports "jewels" will come under the hammer: Elina Svitolina's racket from Tokyo 2020, where she won the first Olympic medal in the history of Ukrainian tennis; autographed T-shirt of the legendary Novak Djokovic; private tasting of exclusive Cuvees Moët Hennessy from the LVMH Foundation at the unique L'Appartement Private in Paris; invitation to a private party of Christian Dior in the company of Elina, followed by a visit to the Grand Slam tournament Roland Garros and other lots.
