Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week
Jeremy Scott can turn strange into fashionable. We have known this for a while now and in more than 15 years Jeremy has been in the fashion industry he had many chances to prove this. Chances that he took. At times the inspiration behind Jeremy’s collections is the pop culture, sometimes it is the Korean pop and sometimes the free-spirited America and its people. Scott’s pieces are bizarre and eccentric, they are just plain cool! With his clothes you can be 100 percent sure you will not get lost and will stand out in the crowd. This is one of the reasons so many celebrities have been fans of the American label from the day it was founded.
The Jeremy Scott spring/summer 2015 collection was both what we expected and what we didn’t expect. Sure, we knew there were going to be colors. Lots of them. But the flowery and girly dresses complemented with flower garlands were something new. The basic dressing principle of the first few models was the following: a miniskirt/ dress/ long shorts paired with colorful general issue combat boots. As we have already mentioned, the pieces were quite colorful and flowery. The diversity of prints on dresses, skirts and blouses was no surprise either. A purple off-shoulder silky dress patched with footprints was of a particular interest. We also could not pass by a skull-peppered orange dress (those skulls looked awfully like Achmed The Dead Terrorist, didn’t they?).
The designer did not forget about the American pop culture either. Famous cartoon characters not once appeared on Jeremy Scott outfits. Shrek (or rather, minimalistic versions of the famous cartoon character’s head), for example, appeared on a simple yellow shift dress, and later on, on a short sweater. He was also featured on a green-brown tee that said “Shrek Happens”. This, however, was not the only tee carrying a message. A pale yellow blouse was telling us that natives are restless and another one urged us not to take drugs (well, that is commendable, isn’t it?). A unique message was transferred by a pair of round sunglasses with “peace” signs.
Head accessories were very few but very much to the point. The flower garlands added charm and liveliness to the Jeremy Scott spring/summer 2015 collection, bonnets helped to create sincere, and we may even say, more innocent looks and those party hats? Well, they were fun and just cool! Necklaces, bracelets, long earrings and massive rings were quiet charming and attention-grabbing as well.
Besides the above-mentioned combat boots in all the colors of rainbow (we loved those to bits!), Jeremy Scott had complemented some of the looks with… open toe animal slippers!
Overall, the collection was fun, very playful and joyous. It was so carefully detailed, that sometimes we even think we will find something new every time we browse through the looks.
Oh and a confession: while looking at the Jeremy Scott spring/summer 2015 collection show models, we kept thinking that if there was one person we imagined wearing every single one of those outfits, it would be Miley Cyrus, who, actually, did appear on the stage along with Jeremy Scott after the collection had been presented!
