I was clearing out my desktop on the weekend and I realised I had been hoarding this story. May issue of Vogue featured fashion designer L’Wren Scott and Mick Jagger’s stunning apparement in Paris.
The guest room features a painting by Francesco Clemente. The curtains were dyed by the same silk manufacturer Scott uses to create her taffeta evening dresses.
Among a display of silver candlesticks and mirrors is a painting by Gabriel Jagger of his sister, Georgia.
The Art Deco bath is by Lalique, made in 1926 for a house in Paris. Jagger purchased the ensemble at auction in the 1970′s and packed it away. The glass doors are patterned with fountains of bubbles, floor and wall tiles, a mirrored bathtub and cabinets, and plaque tiles depicting leaping koi.
The entrance hall. Warhol’s 1972 Mao print hangs above a Tristan Auer bench that Scott had upholstered in her own silk-velvet fabric. A L’Wren Scott bag in coral crocodile is perched on top, and a Persian lacquered vase found at a Paris flea market stands beside it.
The low, curved sofa in the drawing room is covered in cream bouclé tweed from the forties that “has the air of a vintage Balenciaga suit.” She found it in a store on the Rue de Lille.
Resting on a 1930′s table by André Arbusa in the drawing room, is a rare medieval wooden carving of Saint Martin on a horse, rescued, Scott told Vogue, from Jagger’s château in the Loire. “The piece was sitting there in a niche above the chapel door, and someone had painted him blue. So I took him down and sent him to a restorer recommended by the Louvre.” Damien Hirst’s “Dots” hangs in the background.
A Warhol portrait of a young Mick Jagger hangs in her study, which is stacked with fashion-history and art books.
