Jeremy Scott is one of those few people that does not colour within the lines when it comes to fashion. He’s a risk taker oozing with an unapologetic amount of creativity that is manifested in his shows. Considering he designs for not just his namesake label, but for adidas as well as his newest role as a Creative Director for Italian luxury label Moschino; One would think that designing that many collections would create a dilution in his designs, that is just not the case when it comes to Jeremy Scott.
Jeremy showed once again at the iconic milk studios, a multi-level playground where some of the most directional and innovative designers showcase their collections. This season Jeremy didn’t stay within a particular theme, but instead infused the essence of the psychadellic 70’s with a festival inspired undertone [think Coachella and Woodstock], with a touch of shrek.
For the womens side of the collection Jeremy favoured bright psychadellic and opti-prints in the form of babydoll dresses and palazzo pants. My favourite womenswear look was a purple cocktail dress with a sweetheart neckline, with a yellow footprint motif and a cascading asymmetrical flounce detail. Another favourite look was a matching high-waisted skirt with snap closures down the front, paired with a bikini top in a multicoloured mosaic leather.
The menswear for the collection included some of the best pants I had seen on the runway this season. The gold leather pants and the multicoloured patchworked mosaic pants were two of my standout pieces I wish to covet.
For this collection he turned to one of his muses and close friends, Miley Cyrus, to create accessories from her “Dirty Hippie” project. From headbands to bedazzled sunglasses and layered long necklaces adorned with anything she could find attached to them, the jewellery was just as loud and exciting as the clothes coming down the runway.
Jeremy Scott has proved yet again that colouring within the lines of fashion is boring, and we’re thankful he yet again injected some life and colour into NYFW.
