NEW YORK (AP) – CAOS! HORROR! PANIC! CHILD, IT'S HOT! Designer Jeremy Scott has always loved making headlines, but with his latest collection he literally did, inspired by the design inspired by the scandalistic titles of New York.
From a color perspective, Scott's show on Friday night at New York Fashion Week was a very disciplined collection in black and white; Scott usually uses a riot of bright colors and great animated graphics in his clothes.
Here, the garments were decorated with versions of an artist from the New York Post and the Daily News – on clothes, trousers, jackets, overalls and much more. Some of the most surprising objects: elegant and refined chiffon evening dresses printed with tabloid titles.
The printed belts bore the headline: "The market goes down 190 times in the worst bloodbath since Black Monday".
Even the hats were black and white, including newsboy hats or big and huge bows. Dark hair has been sprayed with white to match the color scheme.
Of course, the scourge of false news was not far from Scott's mind.
"I was thinking about the company's complete obsession with outrageous titles," Scott said in the backstage, "with savvy news, with false assumptions, with clickbait, and this kind of obsession with people we get angry with and people do not listen or investigate. really ".
Scott says he has drawn on "different titles of all years, especially the very chaotic ones like" Chaos "and" Panic "."
"It's this tragedy of excitement in a sense, this addiction to that kind of feeling," Scott said. "We continue to perpetuate this dependence on titles and salacious news."
Scott knows it will surprise people to suddenly see him work exclusively in black and white. "It's always nice to keep people on their toes," he joked.
