Growing up, designer L’Wren Scott could usually hear the moment when her mother arrived home at night. “She always had a very chic and sleek bag, and it always made a sound. Every time she would come home, I would hear the noise of the bag setting down, the bag closing,” Scott told reporters Wednesday at a breakfast celebrating her new handbag line at Barneys New York. “It was a memory to me.” That vivid memory was enough to inspire the model-turned-stylist-turned-designer to create her first full-size handbag, the Lula, available now at Barneys stores worldwide. “It was always sort of my dream to make this bag,” Scott explained, referencing the small, large and weekend bags. “I wanted to have a bag that’s very structured, very sharp, very tailored that also had a practical way of using it.” In fact, the spacious purse has a pouch for your iPad or Kindle, and lots of room for everyday necessities. Some styles even come with a mini pouchette inside, perfect for evening. “You can close it, you can hide all your tricks. It’s not schlumpy. It looks chic when it’s sitting there.” Scott’s attention to structure and detail is what’s made her a favorite of so many celebrities; Amy Adams had a red carpet moment in one of her dramatic blue gowns at February’s Oscars, and Oprah Winfrey chose the designer to create dresses for her final shows. “Just being asked to make her clothes was already exciting,” Scott shared. “I had no idea she was wearing them for her last shows.” After shipping them off in garment boxes, “like they were my children,” Scott said, she was stunned to see them on those last episodes. “I was in tears, just like everyone else,” she admitted. “It was so emotional.” –Kate Hogan
