Luella Bartley’s Primal Scream Soundtrack


A Luella Bartley show is always a bit of a music scene, and this season was no exception. At her show on Monday morning, the tapped-in designer—who took home the British Fashion Awards’ Designer of the Year trophy in 2008—had Kanye West and Bob Geldof in the audience, Lissy Trullie and Pixie Geldof on the runway, and Primal Scream main man Bobby Gillespie behind the decks. Gillespie has been doing the Luella music for a few seasons now, and after her catwalk had closed up shop, Bartley explained their intense collaborative process. “Basically, I go round to his house and we hang out and listen to records,” the designer said, as she bounced one of her sons in her arms. “It’s pretty complicated.” Perhaps she’ll be giving Gillespie his own music column in the forthcoming Luella magazine? “There is no magazine,” Bartley said, with a roll of her eyes. “I’m really not sure how that rumor got started.” Some rumors just are too good to be true, apparently, but Bartley was serious about quashing this one. “I think,” she said, as son number two did a zigzag around her, “that I’ve got plenty on my plate as it is.”
