    These bespoke stage jackets designed by L’Wren Scott for her partner Mick Jagger will highlight an online sale at Christie’s from June 9-July 1. The L’Wren Scott Collection sale comprises 55 curated lots designed between 2006 and 2014. The ‘glamouflage’ jacket on the left was worn by Mick Jagger during the Rolling Stones’ headline performance at Glastonbury in 2013. The Butterfly jacket on the right was worn during the celebrated Hyde Park concert, part of the Rolling Stones’ ‘50 & Counting’ live tour in 2013. Jagger wore it while performing ‘Miss You’, when large screens surrounding the Hyde Park stage showed blue butterflies, identical to those on his jacket, fluttering skywards as a tribute to the late Brian Jones, reminiscent of their 1969 Hyde Park concert when white butterflies were released into the sky in his honour. The jackets are estimated at £20,000-£30,000 each.
