Scout Willis dishes on Scout's General, her 'sensual' fashion line

Last year, Scout Willis quietly launched her vintage-inspired fashion line, Scout's General. In February, she made her Fashion Week premiere in, as Refinery29 called it, "the least Fashion Week way," previewing the collection — a blur of Italian silk dresses, alpaca coats and vintage-print basics — at Tiny's, a cozy restaurant in the heart of New York's Tribeca neighborhood.

Now, on the brink of summer — a season that promises trunk shows galore — the 24-year-old designer and daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is opening up about her fashion line in the glossy pages of Harper's Bazaar.

"I wanted to make something for when you are running half an hour late, and you want to cry because everything you try on makes you feel worse, and it keeps getting later and later," Willis shared. "These are the pieces in the back of your closet that you know will make you feel beautiful, sexy and effortless."

"It's a sensual collection," she continued. "It's dreamy and romantic, but grounded in this very wearable and simple structure."

But is it grounded in reality? Per Harper's Bazaar, the costliest piece — a floor-length alpaca coat — runs $850 while dresses will go for $300 or less.

But as Willis, who prides herself on the quality and durability of her materials, explains: "I wanted to make something that looks timeless and high-end, a gorgeous piece of clothing that is also affordable. For the person I want to sell to, $300 for a dress is still a lot of money, so I want people to be able to buy the clothes and think, 'I'm investing in this because I'm going to wear it all the time.'"

For those looking to preview the line before making that investment, Willis will host trunk shows in NYC this summer. She also told Harper's Bazaar that she plans to present the collection during New York Fashion Week in September.

Better save your coins now.

OK, so how much would this run us again? (Photo: Mona Kuhn, 'Harper's Bazaar')
