With her ever-evolving designing skills, L’Wren Scott has become much more than Mick Jagger’s girlfriend. While she did use a song from the famous rocker’s first album with his new band SuperHeavy, “One Day One Night,” as a jumping-off point for her collection, these clothes were all her.
Scott tied it all together, explaining, “I want women to be able to go straight from day to night in hyper-glamour.” Undoubtedly, her statement included women like Daphne Guinness, Ellen Barkin and Rachel Feinstein, who were in attendance. Fabrics had more texture than usual and Scott mixed them with great ease — lots of metallic brocades and rich embroidery, including the red cashmere cardigan worn with white cropped pants and the chartreuse cardigan over a striped silk shirt and long skinny jersey skirt. A L’Wren Scott show is not necessarily a cohesive collection, but rather a wonderfully random selection of influential decades, colors, silhouettes and fabrics that the designer loves. For instance, two of her best looks, the red flared coatdress, trimmed in handmade white lace, and the long, belted shirtdress in rose iridescent silk à la Loretta Young were singular sensations. Given Scott’s very hip, ever-expanding fan base, she can afford to do it her way.
