Spring/Summer 2020 Collection at NYFW: Jeremy Scott
Think neon opera punk, colorful wigs, the 80’s metallic prints, rock-n-roll fantasies, biker clothing gear and intergalactic sci-fi all rolled into one collection. I know, it’s a lot to take in, but that’s what you will find in Jeremy Scott’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection which he presented at the New York Fashion Week. The designer took inspiration from Van Halen front man David Lee Roth, Jem and the Holograms and the Misfits this season. The designer in his own words just wanted to have some ‘fun’ and wanted his collection to be all about escapism.
There was so much happening on the runway, it as difficult to keep track. Their metallic leather mini dresses, crinkled tinfoil biker jackets, animal prints on different pieces from legging’s, skirts to mini dresses to the swimwear and boots. Large printed patterns and colorful electric prints dictated a lot of pieces in the collection. There were men’s and women’s pieces made of patches of panties, the jury is still out on whether it was absurd or futuristic.
One cannot, however, also get over the serious craftsmanship that Jeremy Scott put in his pieces. It was all in the detailing for the designer. Other than the use of metallic, lurex, sequins, and lamé in the collection, which is quite visible to the naked eye there were also patches of fishnet, touches with chain-mail scraps, and puffy silver piping is done minutely in his pieces. If this is the future of fashion, Summer 2020 next year will be pretty interesting!
