Christie’s auction house is offering 55 lots created by Scott, who committed suicide in 2014 at age 49. Scott, Jagger’s girlfriend at the time of his death, was known for her flirty dresses.
“She was so completely elegant and glamorous and had the feeling that everything should be the way it was in the old Hollywood period. Everything was luxury and romance,” Caitlin Yates, head of sales at Christie’s London, told Reuters.
“All the materials she used were the finest materials…everything was handcrafted, she was very focused on details.”
The virtual auction, which runs through July 1, marks the first time a collection of Scott’s archives has hit the market, Yates said. “It was Mick Jagger who decided to bring this to market to celebrate L’Wren Scott,” she added.
Among the items for sale are two jackets in which Scott and Jagger collaborated for the Rolling Stones frontman.
One is a sequined, oak-leaf embroidered “glamoouflage” jacket that Jagger wore at the Glastonbury Music Festival in 2013. The other is embellished with butterflies and sequins and was worn by the singer on his “50 & Counting” tour show in Hyde London Park in the same year. Their prices range from $28,254 to $42,381.
