Tom Scott’s House Party
What is it with nesting for Spring? First up was Agent Provocateur’s indoors-only couture line. Today came Tom Scott’s collection, inspired by curtains and bed ruffles of the kind you’d find in your grandmother’s home. He set up house in suite 710 at the Chelsea Hotel, rumored to be Ethan Hawke’s old pad. Models lounged around in different stages of domestic bliss—having breakfast in bed, ironing the laundry, nursing a hangover—you get the idea. “I wanted to do something with a house, and then we saw the space and to me this is the quintessential New York home.” The props were from a bygone era—clothespins, maraschino cherries, and newspapers—but the clothes were true to Scott’s vision for modern, knit silhouettes. For Spring he’s stepping out of his comfort zone and experimenting with more woven fabrics, such as silk chiffon, cotton muslin, and manmade sheer nylon.
