Jeremy Scott mastered the faute couture aesthetic. His designs can instantly make you stand out from the crowd. For the Moschino Spring 2018 Collection at Milan Fashion Week, Jeremy Scott left out the graphics. But that doesn’t mean that the collection wasn’t in his recognizable design aesthetic. Jeremy Scott is never ordinary. That’s why you won’t see ordinary floral print in his Spring 2018 Collection for Moschino.
“Flowers are always such a stereotype of spring, so I thought, how do I take this stereotype and make it mine? It became literally flowers,” the designer said.
Supermodels Joan Smalls and Gigi Hadid showed up on the runway as walking bouquets. Anna Cleveland plucked leaves from her own dress wondering if her crush loves her, or loves her not. The flower dress and butterfly wings dress were just a couple of the designs that left everyone in awe. It was all about evolving at Moschino’s show yesterday. The designs radiated with a strong positive vibe as always.
“The novice becomes the prima ballerina. The seed becomes the flower. The caterpillar becomes the butterfly. There’s a metamorphosis going on,” Scott explained.
Jeremy Scott’s idea for the Moschino Spring 2018 collection was to tell a story about the life of ballerinas. He gave a sneak peek to the audience in their personal wardrobe. To be more specific, the clothes they like to wear on their way to rehearsals and back. According to Jeremy ballerinas like to wear biker jackets, leather boots, tops, and skirts. The tulle pieces represented the ballerinas’ dress code on the scene. Corset tops and classic voluminous tulle skirts as well as dresses with floor gazing tulle trains dominated on the runway. Jeremy Scott has an explanation for the life-size bouquets as well. He wanted to capture the moment when people throw bouquets on the scene after the ballet performance is over. And he did it in the most authentic way.
You must be wondering who’s going to buy a bouquet dress. Jeremy Scott’s celebrity clientele has multiple occasions for such eccentric designs. But you don’t have to be a celebrity to wear Jeremy Scott’s designs. He designs clothes for everyone. The Moschino Spring 2018 collection was his way to make people smile in these tense political challenging times. And he most certainly did that. The audience at his show during Milan Fashion Week enjoyed the presentation.
