Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Since his fresh start with Björk in the 1990s, Jeremy Scott has rocked many catwalks. His latest success can be easily spotted with Moschino, the Italian luxury brand he resuscitated in 2014. With a strong attraction for pop culture and an even bigger passion for irony, Jeremy Scott has always made it clear: fashion should be fun. And he surely had fun while drawing the Jeremy Scott spring/summer 2016 collection, where he enjoyed mixing the main trends from the Sixties (floppy mod hairdos, anyone?) with those of the Eighties. While looking at it, some of you may also think he got some inspiration from the B-movie/sci-fiction scene of the Eighties and well, to be honest, that could actually be true.

Anyways, Scott’s latest effort has been shown at the New York Fashion Week this early September, where he also premiered ‘The People’s Designers’, an interesting documentary film that retraces Scott’s life from his childhood in Missouri to the MTV VMAs, where he dressed the millennial pop princess par excellence: Miley Cyrus. Both those who were shocked by Cyrus’ outfit, as well as those who kind of liked it, need to get ready for a never-seen-before collection, which is surely destined to make history.

The first thing you will notice about the Jeremy Scott spring/summer 2016 collection is the vast amount of sequin applications which, in contrast with the clean lines of the skirts and tops, creates some nice and fascinating figures. As the outfits go by, we suddenly realize that this kind of dichotomy is indeed the main protagonist of this collection, as, for example, the cocktail dress with a ribbon at the waist and a bouffant pink and silver brocade skirt promptly demonstrates. Other remarkable works from his spring line-up are: the ray-gun printed summery shorts, the sophisticated A-line dresses covered with digital television prints (which he also used for some stretch knee pants and reminds us of less technological times), the metallic crop-tops combined with delicate flounce skirts, and the high-contrast sequin striped dresses, which officially bring the color-block thing to a brand new level.

Matching cropped sweaters and miniskirts, he brings back the ‘cool kid from the Eighties’ era, albeit revisited with a modern twist. This modern twist also has a blast thanks to the funny cartoony knit crop tops and dresses, while the scribble print chemisiers give a different example of what it means to dress elegantly. Although there’s a long way to the next summer, the premises are tempting.

Scott’s success is a great blessing to the fashion industry (and to Moschino in the first place), and shows the most cheerful and breezy side of fashion. It proves we should all take life less seriously, and try to concentrate on having more fun. Note to (future) self: the biker leather skirt with the printed white polka dots is definitely going to rock next summer!
