>> L'Wren Scott's "Tea Time" collection for Fall 2012 may have culled influence from early 20th century England — but the result was thoroughly now. Silhouettes were curve-conscious and hit just below the knee, while draped or ruffled necklines provided a hint of structure. Fabrics, too, were romantic, rich — and incredibly luxe. There was claret velvet, printed silk, and pony hair, many of which came lightly beaded or trimmed with fox fur. A saturated palette of olive, yellow, red, and berry injected just the right amount of quirk. "The L’Wren Scott girl is still irreverent and has a hard edge," the designer explained.
