My all time favorite designer, Jeremy Scott, raided this seasons New York’s Fashion Week and brought along the most psychedelic styles I have ever seen, since, of course, last season’s line. I love Jeremy because he pushes the limits of fashion and is not afraid to show what his talents, and creativity, are truly capable of. When I first laid eyes on his RTW s/s 2016 line, I was utterly in love and wanted to buy every piece. Each of the models were decked in plastic, chunky clear neon bracelets and big, sixties-styled beauty queen wigs.
The most intriguing pieces on the line will have to be the sky-blue dress depicting an open-mouthed monster face. It reminded me a lot of Rocko’s Modern Life meets Ren & Stimpy. Very Jeremy Scott. Another look that caught my eye was a psychedelic tie-dye crop top moto jacket with matching short capris and a thin clear neon green plastic belt, which reminded me of a perfectly styled spring outfit on acid.
My favorite men’s look was the numerous T.V. screened pants, which reminded me of the what the chicken strapped down to the chair on the beginning of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken is forced to watch or the creepy room scene from The Matrix. The model’s muscle shirt has a fuzzy hologram hand on a T.V. screen looking as if it is about to reach out of the shirt.
My favorite look on Jeremy Scott’s entire line this season was the black-and-white sixties yearbook print tankini dress. Open up your grandmother’s year book, flip to any page with all women on it and you will see the inspiration that Mr. Scott got for this dress. Styled with a chunky neon yellow plastic belt with a circular buckle and a Jackson Pollack inspired rainbow clutch, this outfit screams swinging sixties.
