The French couturier, Jean-Louis Scherrer passsed away on Wednesday at his home in Paris. Since I opened RARE vintage in 2006, I have been very fortunate to have had some wonderful Scherrer pieces for the store. I don't think there is necessairly a recognizable Scherrer look but rather that the designs are united in their refinement and distinctive very French elegance.
They have also had some good vintage moments on the red carpet. Two of my favorites:
Anne Hathaway in a black tulle Jean-Louis Scherrer cocktail dress from RARE vintage with white roses layered under the tulle.
and then Rachel Weisz looking chic and dangerous in a leopard print Scherrer dress from RARE vintage.
