Mood/Style: Pop Art did in fact inspire Jeremy Scott for this Fall-Winter 2016/17 collection, which is a rather literal homage to the provocative artistic work of the British duo Gilbert & George.
Brilliant colours and contour lines that look like they were drawn with a pencil, stand-out prints of crosses and flowers mixed in with a street version of the kilt and vinyl pants pilfered from the punk movement, two-button suits and all-denim outfits, words that evoke universal messages like “hope”, “power” and “life” printed on jersey sweaters, parkas and bombers. A fun and hypnotising collection, just what you would expect from Scott, who reveals his artistic complexity in the most imperceptible details.
Materials: leather, silk, wool, cashmere, nylon, vinyl, cotton, denim, jersey.
