From panties to pants. In early 1999, co founder and designer of the French Jenny lingerie collection, Fashion Designer Scott French sold his stake in the multi million dollar company to pursue his dream of designing men"s wear. Now approaching its third season, R. Scott French is a complete collection of better sportswear that strikes a balance between item driven diversity and the cohesive development of a designer look.
A native of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Scott was first introduced to sewing by his grandmother who would regularly include him in her quilting circles. Not only did he quickly become adept with a needle and thread, but he immediately realized that this new found hobby served as a creative outlet as well. To this day, Scott credits that experience with having shaped his acute understanding of the geometry of design, and instilled in him a deep appreciation of an American art form, as evidenced in his sleek & linear sportswear designs.
Having honed his skills in the fashion industry with an eclectic experience ranging from retail and wholesale, to design and production, Scott has a solid understanding of every aspect vital to any collection"s success. Globally sourced and domestically manufactured, Scott perfectly marries the use of the richest European fabrics and yarns with a distinct American sportswear sensibility.
Having received a healthy endorsement from some of the country"s most prestigious specialty retailers within its first season, the R. Scott French collection strives to maintain an accessible price range, without compromising its level of forward thinking creativity or its ever present sense of fun!
For Fall 2012 designers are inspired by a wide range of influences, from the elaborate details of brocade and metallic gold embellishments to the dynamic mix of military chic and power pantsuits. Colo
