Interview: L’Wren Scott on Sequins and Celebrities
L’Wren Scott is no stranger to sequins.
Party dressing is part of her everyday life: It’s simply not a choice for an insider-favorite fashion designer, a celebrity stylist and the girlfriend of Mick Jagger to curl up in her cashmere cardigan all the time.
But she doesn’t compromise comfort, probably because she does attend so many events, meetings and red-carpet parties. Confidence is born from the combination of style, comfort and impeccable fit, Scott insists.
Cost, however, can be a factor for many women who feel their budgets force them into a choice of one or another. But, she says, it doesn’t have to be that way.
She launches the limited-edition Banana Republic L’Wren Scott Collection last week, and Scott says it will wrap her signature flattering construction and extraordinary fabrics into a package that will cost less than $200. The timing, of course, matches up nicely with holiday-season festivities.
Her sparkly cardigan, for example, will take you to each and every event, even the ones you don’t know you’ll be going to until you’re practically there, she says. (It’s available in green, red, silver/black, so it’s something for everyone, she adds.) Grab the sweater, a pair of heels and you’re good to go.
OK, it’s not quite Nicole Kidman at the Oscars or Cannes, but it’ll turn some heads.
