Remembering L’Wren Scott Via Vogue fr
Remembering L’Wren Scott: She was a singular designer. Not least for her background, her path, her stature – she stood tall at 6’2″ – an uncommon elegance and, despite a life lived in the spotlight, a very singular reserve. Some saw strength in this, there was also undoubtedly fragility. L’Wren Scott chose to leave this world in her New York apartment Monday, March 17, in a final, unexplainable act, leaving an absence felt all the more at Vogue Paris where we knew her attachment to France, a country she visited regularly.
Partner of Mick Jagger since 2001, L’Wren Scott had embraced fashion in all its forms, first modeling for big-name photographers like Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts, Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin, but also turning her hand to costume design for cinema, ready-to-wear and accessories with a luminous glamour that went hand-in-hand with her very American class and elegance. An authentic, sincere vision, fed by world travel, Californian sunshine and London rigor, for a true approach to femininity that was genuine, sensitive and will now be sadly missed.
