Bold colors, whimsical prints, and mis-match patterns – Jeremy Scott was true to his signature in his Ready to Wear Spring 2016 show yesterday. Heavily influenced by the 1960’s Twiggy era – the collection is an electrifying blast to the past with modern influences. Ever the innovator, Scott’s show was livestreamed on Periscope and featured on NYFW.com. Alongside his eye catching designs, Scott collaborated with Brazilian shoe brand, Melissa on the custom footwear for the show.
Clothing and accessories aside, the beauty inspiration was one of the most notable aspects of the show. “‘Plastic fantastic,’ ‘beautiful trash,’ and ‘tongue-in-cheek’ were just a few of the terms used to describe the more-is-more beauty prescription backstage at Jeremy Scott today.” say Vogue.com
“But if we [have] to pick one, it’s John Waters,” said makeup artist Kabuki, as he painted a dramatic black wing of eyeliner onto model Anna Cleveland with MAC Blacktrack Fluidline—a swoosh that could have easily been plucked straight from the faces of the cult film director’s favorite strange beauties like Debbie Harry, Traci Lords, and Cookie Mueller. “It’s spiky—cute, but also aggressive.” Along the bottom lash line was a drawn-on set of faux fringe. “It’s not the Twiggy ’60s, it’s subversive,” he clarified, before executing a neon orange lip.
The combination of design and amusing stylings, makes us wish Spring started tomorrow so we could rock these fun wears. Jeremy Scott never fails in lighting up New York Fashion Week only the way he can!
