NYFW: Jeremy Scott Fall 2016

Print Edition

Expect the unexpected…

from designer, Jeremy Scott.

As the head designer of his own collection, Jeremy Scott, and the creative director for Italian luxury fashion house, Moschino, Scott notoriously lets his imaginative mind run wild on the runways of both New York and Milan Fashion Week.

Last fall, the designer brought the car wash to the fashion world with his Car Wash Couture Spring/Summer 2016 collection for Moschino, featuring traffic cones transformed into bags and hats, as well as silhouettes inspired by cleaning supplies.

Just when Scott’s over-the-top runway renovation left most wondering what he could possibly come up with next, his latest Jeremy Scott Fall Ready-To-Wear collection hit the catwalk at the 2016 New York Fashion Week.

Instead of dresses made of caution tape and others made of feathers to depict the brushes of drive-through car washes, Scott styled his gang of supermodels in pieces inspired by everything from the old American West to classic cartoons of the 90s.

Supermodel, Karlie Kloss, opened the show wearing a cheetah print waistcoat accessorized with fur pockets and Scott’s signature neon hues, followed by a model strutting an orange and yellow fur, tiger-striped coat that was paired with cotton-candy blue plastic cowboy boots.moschino2.jpg

The lineup also featured Western shirts as well as cowhide printed miniskirts, waistcoats, and denim. The pink-hued cowhide fur coat worn by model, Stella Maxwell, is a personal favorite from the novel collection.

Despite the lack of poodle skirts in the lineup, Scott’s “cowboy and poodle” inspiration landed right on the money. However, the show took an unexpected turn after knit minidresses with electric guitar and outer space graphics trailed innovative designs of denim and rhinestones.

Models styled in reflective leather motorcycle jackets, telephone motifs, and Pop Art graphics paraded down the runway, nodding to the trendsetting spunk of the 1980s and the hip flare of the 1990s.

Perhaps the most surprising looks to hit the runway were the dresses covered in the characters, Ren and Stimpy, from the classic cartoon of the Nineties.

Drawing inspiration from a variety of eras, Scott truly created a mishmash collection of retro influences, which provokes a rather disconnected runway show that only Jeremy Scott could pull off.
