SKYLENCE Features at Kelly Rutherford’s Sovereign Collective
It’s a ‘pinch me’ moment. For most of us, Kelly Rutherford is all over our Pinterest style boards. She became the archetype for the ‘Birkin Mom’ after staring as Lily van der Woodsen in CW’s ‘Gossip Girl’. It’s the one TV show that unites fashion lovers from all walks of the industry. Kelly has now swapped the silver screen for a job her on-screen persona would definitely approve of.
Sovereign Collective, launched by Kelly, is hosting a pop-up in Belgravia from 13th-16th July to launch their platform in London. After joining Sovereign Collective’s global platform in June, SKYLENCE is honoured to be featured in this exciting pop-up.
Discover SKYLENCE – The Upper East Side Edit
SKYLENCE x Gossip Girl is the crossover we’ve always dreamt of. Gossip Girl and the backdrop of New York’s urban jungle continue to influence fashion trends long after the show’s final season. It’s a place we go to for inspiration on bringing a metropolitan feel to our designs.
So, what would Lily van der Woodsen, Eleanor Waldorf, and their Upper East Side friends wear from SKYLENCE?
Summing up the Gossip Girl aesthetic isn’t even. Some call it ‘old money’, others think of it as ‘Bohemian Princess’ or ‘Parisian glamour’. Whether you’re a Waldorf or van der Woodsen, gossip girl fashion has one thing in common. It’s classic and timeless while giving a nod to contemporary trends.
Our Derling Edit is one collection we could see filling Lily van der Woodsen’s New York closet.
The Derling Embroidered Jacket would add an oriental twist to the Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy look that would become pivotal to building Lily van der Woodsen’s character. We imagine her styling it with her classic skinny black jeans and a Hermes bag for a day shopping with Serena at Bergdorf’s.
No Upper East sider’s social calendar is complete without cocktail parties. The Derling Embroidered Dress is the little black dress Serena would have called dibs on from Lily’s closet.
A piece we could see the Waldorf girls wearing is the Chelsea Tang Tweed Jacket with its classic European silhouette that would be perfect for any trip to Paris. An honourable mention goes to our Victoria Porcelain Dress that every Upper East sider needs for garden party season.
