LIP SERVICE: It’s a big week for Selfridges with the Stones rolling into the store’s new concept space, the Corner Shop, and phase three of the retailer’s mega-accessories hall set to open with a new entrance on Duke Street.
The Corner Shop is marking The Rolling Stones’ 2018 “No Filter” U.K. tour, which kicks off in Dublin later this week, with a bespoke installation that mixes high-end themed merchandise and unique displays curated by The Rolling Stones and Bravado, Universal Music Group’s brand management company.
There are stage outfits from the Seventies through the “50 & Counting” tour in 2012-13, including a series of over-the-top looks by L’Wren Scott, Mick Jagger’s former fashion designer girlfriend who died in 2014.
Her designs include the red ombré ostrich feather cape with black lace lining that Mick Jagger wore when performing Sympathy for the Devil during “50 & Counting,” and the green oak leaf sequined jacket that Scott designed with Jane Haywood for band’s 2013 headline show at Glastonbury festival.
There is also a heavily embroidered matador-style jacket in red and gold designed by Balenciaga, and a denim jacket emblazoned with the American flag, worn on the Steel Wheels U.S. tour in 1989.
