Mountaineering ravers? That was the idea behind Jeremy Scott’s typically pumped-up, more-is-more Moschino collection. Taking his cues from Bruce Weber’s outdoor images, depicting what Scott described as “this triumphant mountaineer-type man,” Scott spiked all the plaid checks, shearling and fur that that idea conjures up with rave-ready textures, such as shiny plastic and shimmering sequins.
His muscle-bound models wore blanketlike coats in faux fur done to look like zebra or ermine, or bulked-up puffer coats that came in shiny sky blue or a patchwork print depicting images of denim jeans.
There were also some tongue-in-cheek takes on eveningwear, like a tuxedo jacket done in a mélange of plaids, while another bare-chested model sported a tux in silver, printed with garish orange Hibiscus flowers. Scott piled on more embellishment with sequined silver pants and shearling-lined parkas covered in gold or silver sequins.
It goes without saying that this wasn’t a lineup for retiring types, but no doubt Scott’s photo-op-ready pieces will garner column inches and entice his growing crowd of celebrity fans.
