The Eagle Eye Has Landed
Fashion Week Closes With L'Wren Scott's Intimate After-Party
"It's the finale!" L'Wren Scott announced last night at the Chatwal Hotel Lambs Club. The designer was celebrating post-show with friends and fans including Mick Jagger, Jade Jagger, Daphne Guinness, and André Balazs. "I'm happy with what we've done this season," she said. "My team worked very hard." Scott's staff returned the compliment. We learned that they call her "eagle eye" for an obsessive attention to detail that's earned her in-house comparisons to fit maestro Azzedine Alaïa.
Scott's perfectionism isn't lost on Kanye West, who, aside from some very active twittering, laid relatively low this week. "I didn't get to see that much fashion because I've been in the studio, but I made time for this," he said. His other fashion week highlights? "The Rodarte sisters. Their stuff is amazing," West declared. The rapper skipped out early and missed the after-party upstairs, but Scott stuck around despite a 10 a.m. trunk show at Barneys today. "After that, I'm going to take a day off," the designer said. "I'm going to sleep, and for once in a long time, not think about fashion at all."
