Jackets worn by rocker Mick Jagger and dresses worn by actresses Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker are going under the hammer as part of a sale of outfits from the archives of the late fashion designer L’Ren Scott. The auction house is putting out 55 lots designed by Christy Scott, who died by suicide in 2014 at the age of 49.
Scott, who was Jagger’s girlfriend at the time of her death, was known for her flashy, intricately detailed costumes.
Caitlin Yates, head of sales at Christie’s London, told Reuters: “She was absolutely elegant and glamorous and had a feeling that everything had to be as it was in the Old Hollywood era. Everything was just luxury and romance.”
“All the materials she used were the finest materials … everything was done by hand, she was very detail oriented.”
Yates said the online sale, which runs until July 1, marks the first time it has hit the market from Scott’s archives.
“It was Mick Jagger who decided to market it in celebration of L’Ren Scott,” she said.
Items on sale include two jackets Scott and Jagger have collaborated on for the Rolling Stones frontman.
There is a sequined and embroidered oak leaf “Glamoflage” jacket that Jagger wore to a performance at the Glastonbury Music Festival in 2013. The other is adorned with beaded and sequined butterflies that the singer wore to the Stones’ “50 and Counting” tour concert in London’s Hyde Park. in 2013.
Both have a price estimate of £20,000 to £30,000 ($28,254 to $42,381).
A selection of frocks are being sold, including a black-and-gold sequined gown that Kidman wore to the Oscars in 2013, which is expected to fetch from £1,500 to £2,500. Embroidered with pink sequins and a 1940s-style black dress worn by Madonna, costs from £500 to £800.
Proceeds from the sale will go towards the L’Ren Scott Scholarship at London Art School Central St Martins, established by Jagger in 2015.
“L’Ren was a talented and passionate designer with a keen eye for detail,” Jagger said in a statement. “Everyone who wore her clothes was at the center of her designs.”
