|An ad for L’Wren Scott’s collection at Banana Republic.|
I’m very excited about designer L’Wren Scott’s upcoming collection at Banana Republic. I have become more interested in her aesthetic over the past year after reading a few articles and interviews with her that trace her career path. She was a model before becoming a celebrity stylist and she started her own line in 2006. My mother and I checked out her clothes at Barney’s once and were impressed with the attention to detail and the classic and ladylike feel to the collection. It also seems L’Wren never met a sequin (or lace) she didn’t like and I can definitely relate to that!

L’Wren’s regular line is quite expensive—have a look here to see what I mean—so I’m happy she’s doing a collaboration with Banana Republic so I can add some of her designs to my closet without breaking the bank.

Did you know L’Wren was one of the costume designers in the remake of Diabolique with Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani? I loved Sharon Stone’s feminine yet structured yet va-va-voom look in the movie. It had a vintage vibe to it and this was back in 1996 when vintage was not as popular as it is today.

There is a lot of red in L’Wren’s collection for Banana Republic and I can definitely see one of the sequined sweaters and the lips clutch finding their way into my closet. The collection is available in stores and online on December 5.
Let this be your friendly reminder that Adrienne and I would love for you to join us for “How I Wear My: Red”. We are accepting photos until December 3, 2013.
As for the lovely L’Wren, an interview with her that I liked is at The Telegraph. There is also a fun read about her beauty routine over at Into the Gloss. If you want to see the amazing Paris apartment she shares with boyfriend Mick Jagger, you can check it out here.
UPDATE: Due to a timing conflict Adrienne and I have to reschedule “How I Wear My: Red” so we will now accept pictures until December 8, 2013.
