Mick Jagger jackets up for auction of L’Wren Scott creations
Jackets worn by rocker Mick Jagger and dresses worn by actresses Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker go under a hammer as part of an outfit sale from the archives of late fashion designer L’Wren Scott.
Christie’s auction house is putting together 55 lots designed by Scott, who committed suicide in 2014 at the age of 49.
Scott, who was Jagger’s girlfriend at the time of his death, was known for her elegant and intricately detailed dresses.
“She was so stylish and glamorous and she felt like everything should be like in the Hollywood days. It was all luxury and romance,” Caitlin Yates, head of sales at Christie’s London, told Reuters.
“All the materials she used were the best materials… everything was handmade, she was very detail-oriented.”
The online sale, which runs through July 1, is the first time a collection from Scott’s Archives has been released, Yates said.
“It was Mick Jagger who decided to bring this to the market to celebrate L’Wren Scott,” she added.
Among the items for sale are two jackets that Scott and Jagger collaborated on for the Rolling Stones frontman.
One is an embroidered and sequined oak leaf “glam” jacket that Jagger wore to perform at the Glastonbury Music Festival in 2013. The other is adorned with beaded and sequined butterflies that the singer wore to the touring concert “50 & Counting” by the Stones at Hyde Park in London. in 2013.
Both have a price estimate of 20,000 to 30,000 pounds ($ 28,254 to $ 42,381).
A selection of dresses are on sale, including a black and gold sequin dress that Kidman wore to the Oscars in 2013, which is expected to cost between £ 1,500 and £ 2,500. A 40s-style black dress embroidered with pink sequins and worn by Madonna is estimated at between 500 and 800 pounds.
Proceeds from the sale will go to the L’Wren Scott Scholarship, established by Jagger in 2015, at London’s Central St Martins School of Art.
“L’Wren was a talented and passionate designer with a keen eye for detail,” Jagger said in a statement. “Everyone who wore her dresses was at the center of her designs. “
