Review from Style.com:

Quote:
NEW YORK, February 8, 2008 – The gallery-hopping designer moved her intimate presentation from Gagosian to Tony Shafrazi this season, where—to a star-studded audience that included Ellen Barkin, Kyra Sedgwick, Christy Turlington Burns, and Rachel Feinstein Currin—she showed a Victorian-inflected collection that was more than a just a little bit rock 'n' roll.

Keeping the silhouette slim and graphic, L'Wren Scott focused her attention on the details. Neat rows of brass buttons marched down the front of cocktail dresses. (They also showed up on the Christian Louboutin-designed shoes.) Motocross-like quilting revved up the seduction factor on a skirtsuit, while raised embroidery on a sweeping cape lent it an almost regal air. A pair of skinny jeans, meanwhile, had a fleur-de-lis motif extending down the back of each leg, and a gold gown featured a back bustle made of strips of lace that moved with laudable grace.

– Laird Borrelli-Persson

I prefer her spring debut to this...
It's looking a bit costume-y and slightly stale, tbh.
A couple pieces could be quite lovely w/ outfits that are not intent on such literal motifs...

^ I agree.

Last season was much stronger. It wasn't fussy looking, very reference free and sexy. Still, it's nice to see a NY designer these days who embraces the female form rather than trying to conceal it.
