L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic
This month designer L'Wren Scott unleashed her highly anticipated high street collection with Banana Republic onto the fashion masses and we obsessed over the selection of beautiful prints, uptown blazers and pussy-bow blouses. Rocker Mick Jagger's girlfriend's designs are a fast favourite on red carpets the world over, but for the collaboration the usually pricey and exclusive pieces have been translated for the Banana Republic customer. A partnership of this scale was a first for me, and I was very excited to find a true partner in Banana Republic,' Scott revealed. 'Through this collection, we were able to bring our shared vision to life and the end result is a capsule we're both so proud to call our own.' To celebrate the new arrivals - just in time for the party season - L'Wren answers your questions...
