THE WEIRD, WON­DER­FUL WORLD OF JEREMY SCOTT

Elle (South Africa) - - FASHION SPECIAL -

Never one to shy away from a shock fac­tor, Jeremy’s sent some se­ri­ously fan­tas­ti­cal, wild-child fash­ion down the run­way, true to his de­sign mis­sion of trans­form­ing low-brow, pop­u­lar cul­ture into high-end fash­ion. Here are some of the most hys­te­ria-caus­ing mo­ments:

THE PA­PER DOLL SHOW

Jeremy sent mod­els down the run­way as ac­tual pa­per dolls, com­plete with pa­per tabs and card­board ac­ces­sories. The only thing that could top this was the in­vi­ta­tion to his show, which was said to come in the form of pill boxes pre­scribed by

‘Dr Moschino’.

THE SMOKIN’ SHOW

If any­one knows how to stick to a nar­ra­tive, it’s Jeremy. For his A/W16 Moschino show, the theme was cig­a­rettes (no, we aren’t kid­ding) and showed singed frocks dec­o­rated in cig­a­rette burns with ac­tual smoke com­ing out of them. Talk about fash­ion burnout!

THE JACKIE O AS A SPACE ALIEN SHOW The the­ory goes that Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe was about to go pub­lic with the news that aliens do in­deed ex­ist. Pres­i­dent Kennedy, how­ever, was hav­ing none of this and had her as­sas­si­nated. For A/W18, Jeremy won­dered: ‘What if Jackie O was the alien?’ and cre­ated his beauty look in in­ter­est­ing shades of blue, green and pink.

THE WINDEX SHOW

Jeremy in­fuses whimsy into ev­ery­thing he does. A de­signer made for the age of In­sta­gram, he based his en­tire S/S16 col­lec­tion on a trip to the car­wash that in­cluded clean­ing prod­ucts as his must-have ac­ces­sories.
