Native New Yorker and creative director of the Italian luxury fashion house Moschino, Jeremy Scott, finally gave an ode to the sleepless city in his Pre-fall womenswear 2020 collection. Not surprisingly, the show’s backdrop was the subway cars at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn.
Using the inspiration of New York’s infamous grit and nuances, the designer designed pinned-up leather jackets, oversized color-blocked puffer jackets, and all this got a huge thumbs up from attendees like Madelaine Petsch and Kacey Musgraves from the side-lines.
To represent New York City’s eclectic mix of styles, the collection comprised of Moschino’s logo in a mix of oversized belts, gold chains, cuff bracelets, and comically overlarge bags. The models wore polished tweed suits and beaded evening gowns to add the oomph.
Sam’s notorious playfulness was unwittingly evident in his Pre-fall collection – a giant safety pin, B-Girls wearing Run DMC phat gold rope chains, and LL Cool J’s 1985 debut album Radio-inspired jackets and trousers – were all subsequently spot on.
Of course, what’s a city that never sleeps? The chunky hooded shearling coats mixed with oversized wide pants or graphical jackets with waists doubled as a bustier – Scott’s collection caught the essence of the eccentric perfectly.
