L’Wren Scott’s Sultry Asian-American Glam

L’Wren Scott’s Spring 2014 collection is heavily inspired by traditional and modern references of Japanese culture. Scott’s lively collection of kimonos, obis and floral fare, dazzled the runway and made you wonder how she managed to incorporate old hollywood glam with modern Asian inflections in order to form such a strong collection.



The display ranged from structured silhouettes in strong and bold colors of red and black a staple of Asian culture — to flowing pieces with lush floral prints and of course, the dazzling wisteria embroidery detail that appeared on many of the stark white items. Her use of pure white silhouettes showcased the hours and attention spent on the lush garden embellishment detail, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. These pieces were superb!



Re-emergence of Asian-inspired glamour

Scott’s love of the design and architecture of the culture comes through each carefully crafted piece from her collection as the models sashayed down the runway. Each look is fully accessorized with coordinating dainty umbrellas and styled with carefully placed custom features of slits, wrap silhouettes, belts and innovative mock neck designs. The collection brings Japanese glam to the forefront and does a wonderful job portraying the beauty of tradition and elegance with a modern twist that only Scott could conceive.




While this collection warrants many style steals, the real jewel is in the details which Scott used to pull the looks together. The Mandarin collars, and obi belts will be a big hit with consumers, high slits have been on the scene for sometime however, look for slits in precarious places like sleeves and other strategic places on garments for extra sultry modern-meets-tradition appeal.
