L’Wren Scott previously showed her creations in Paris and New York. This time around the designer, who says she liked the “idea of not being tied to one place” and showed her Fall 2013 collection at London Fashion Week, inspired by Gustav Klimt.
His process and journey and evolution. I loved reading about his love affair with Adele Bauer.
I guess I was just ready to sparkle.
I wanted to see the girl walk out of the picture,
the designer told Vogue.
Scott’s collection is very inspired indeed consisting of bold prints, shiny metallics, and beautiful bright colors that include cobalt, turquoise, but also oxblood and gold.
The show opens with a gold patterned white coat and is followed by an outfit with matching trousers and a blush leather jacket. Blush leather can be seen further in the collection in form of a coat and pants, and then changed into oxblood.
The brights and neutrals in the collection are balanced out by numerous black dresses decorated with golden details like buttons, piping, cuffs, collars, belts and sequins. The evening black dress was done in lace with leather side panels.
But the gold doesn’t end there. It comes in evening gowns, in a great patterned satin cape, and even shoes and clutches. In the first part of the collection there are a few golden numbers featuring scales pattern and combined with cobalt blue, which makes for a great color combo.
The collection also includes a few separates like an emroidered velvet blazer and formal pants, a velvet pencil skirt and an embroidered shirt. The rest of the collection consists of evening gowns, sequined, printed and bold.
A sequined black gold number with a shoulder shrug is followed by a flower-printed gown and a strapless dress with a neck detail. The last three gowns are featured in garish prints that include the snake, the scales and blue leaves.
