I’m in kind of a silly mood today so I’m going to take a look back at the works of one of fashion’s more out-there designers: Jeremy Scott, a label which combines a glorious blend of grotesque cartoon imagery with horror references and splashes of zinging colour. If you’re a fellow lover of kitschy bad taste like I am then J-Scott is probably a designer that’d be right up your alley.
I love Jeremy Scott’s designs because they’re a big, glittery scream-in-your-face departure from the austerity and seriousness of Fashion Week. The likes of Chanel, Versace, Dior and co will always be special and inspirational to me, but Jeremy Scott’s collections are somewhere between a cheesy 80s horror movie and an episode of The Flintstones, and I’m afraid that when my good and bad tastes do battle, the bad tastes always win. I know that I’m not alone in this – Katy Perry and Rihanna love him too.
In the gallery above are some early examples of Jeremy Scott’s work along with his more recent, ridiculous collections featuring the likes of Pixie Geldof on the catwalk. Check out our favourite Jez moments and let us know whether you’re a lover of his work or a hater.
