L'Wren Scott took inspiration for her Fall 2013 collection from the work of Gustav Klimt, who made many of his most famous paintings sparkle with the addition of gold leaf. That explains the swirls of gold fabric on Scott's coats and dresses and on a dramatic cape toward the end of the show. It also explains the exuberant use of sequins and gold accents like buttons and bow ties, and rich jewel tones like teal, burgundy, and cobalt blue.
L'Wren Scott's Fall 2013 London Fashion Week debut was filled with pure decadence, showcasing real gold — 23-carat gold, to be exact — across an array of coats and capes and even on the designer's shimmery lineup of pumps and peep-toe booties. Inspired by artist Gustav Klimt and his muse Adele Bauer during his "golden" period, Scott created one opulent look after the other. Curve-hugging gowns featured their own "built-in" jewelry, while a sweeping cape highlighted leaf embroidery made out of pure gold thread. No doubt, this collection was made for the designer's devoted Hollywood following. In fact, Scott's rock-star boyfriend Mick Jagger was spotted in the crowd smiling ear to ear as he watched the collection go down the runway.
