Two of Mick Jagger’s custom-made sequin jackets are up for sale as part of an auction of L’Wren Scott designs.
The jackets, a black satin beaded number that the rocker wore during the historic Rolling Stones’ headline performance at Glastonbury in 2013, and a black satin jacket featuring sequined and beaded butterflies in shades of blue with white detailing that he donned during a concert at Hyde Park that same year, will go under the hammer as part of a sale of 55 curated lots being organised by the team at Christie’s London. Each jacket is expected to sell for between $28,000 and $42,000 (£20,000 – £30,000).
Jagger and designer/stylist Scott were in a relationship from 2001 until her death at the age of 49 in 2014.
“The L’Wren Scott Collection sale in June is a celebration of L’Wren’s remarkable work and a wonderful opportunity for the public to see and enjoy her creations. L’Wren was a talented and passionate designer with a keen eye for detail,” the 77-year-old commented. “Everyone who wore her dresses was at the centre of her designs. She created beautiful pieces that were the epitome of elegance and sophistication, yet with a contemporary feel. I’m delighted the proceeds of this auction are going to benefit young students, helping to nurture emerging talents in fashion.”
In addition, the auction will include red carpet gowns worn by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Obama, Amy Adams, Ellen Barkin, and Renee Zellweger.
“L’Wren was exceptionally chic and refined, but she was also very sexy, and I think that her clothes depict that combination. I miss her dreadfully but I cherish our time together. I can’t name just one piece I loved that L’Wren designed, there were so many,” added Kidman.
The online sale will run until 1 July. Proceeds will benefit the L’Wren Scott MA Fashion Scholarship at Central Saint Martins, which Jagger set up in 2015.
