L’Wren Scott’s Luxe Touch Brightens Banana Republic’s Holiday


L’Wren Scott is looking to make your holiday brighter without breaking the bank. The decadent designer has partnered with Banana Republic on a 50-piece, modern, collegiate-themed collection.

Known for her attention to details and the price tag to go with it, Scott was challenged to create pieces for the perfect holiday at home—like a fitted velvet jacket with striped lining and a classic broacade shift—while keeping petite and tall sizes in mind. There are also a slew of giftable treasures like cashmere blankets, striped berets and totes, and a clutch bag with a gunmetal chain that can be worn as a necklace for a rock ‘n’ roll edge. “The blouses are gorgeous. I did some really great L jeans, my signature jean, in fun colors and a nice brocade. I also did a drawing, a peony print from my garden, and put it on jeans,” she told Women’s Wear Daily.

Scott, who is currently on the road with The Rolling Stones, grew up shopping at the retailer and was amazed at the swift and smooth process of creating the large collection. “From a quality point of view and their price point, it was really impressive,” she explained. “They have this massive team that helps you achieve what you want to do. It’s this big machine. In a team that size, you have somebody for every component for the making of a garment. The sheer speed that they can achieve is mesmerizing. It was hard to edit [the collection]. We did more than we even expected.”

Prep your shopping list now and set an alert as the collection is slated to hit shelves December 5th.
