Who is Jeremy Scott?
Pop culture’s most irreverent designer
Jeremy Scott, born in Kansas City and raised on a livestock farm in Missouri, was determined to work in fashion from a young age; he drew fashion styles in his notebooks and was often bullied for his quirky style of dressing. Undeterred, he took French lessons from the age of fourteen and also studied Japanese in a bid to achieve his dream. He moved to New York in 1992 to study fashion at the Pratt School of Design, graduating in 1996 and also interning in the PR department at Moschino in his final year. Moving to Paris to pursue his fashion dreams, Jeremy Scott set up his own label against all odds and presented his first collection in 1997. Jeremy Scott the brand made its debut in a bar in Bastille. Based on the David Cronenberg film and JG Ballard book “Crash”, most of the materials used were made from hospital gowns and the models wore shoes taped to their feet. His follow-up collection propelled him further into the limelight. Described as “Blade Runner trash bags and the apocalypse”, his worked was exhibited in influential Paris store Colette seeing him create a long running relationship with the store up until it’s closure in December 2017. However, it was his third all-in-white collection that was his greatest success, drawing in the likes of Mario Testino, editors of French Vogue and stylist Isabella Blow. Blow even adopted Scott as her protégé; Jeremy Scott was born.
Jeremy Scott’s celebrity friends
Bjork was an early adopter of Jeremy Scott; wearing a dress from the white show during a performance with Scott going on to provide costumes for several of her tours. By his fourth collection, Madonna, Kylie and Britney were also customers. Scott also dressed Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj before they shot to international fame. Documentary director Vlad Yudin created “Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer” in 2015 which featured cameo’s from lots of Scott’s influential pop star friends, thus cementing his celebrity status. He also counts celebrities such as the Hadid’s and singer Cardi B as friends and his biggest fans.
Jeremy Scott Collaborations
Jeremy Scott has collaborated with a variety of brands over the years, with some of these partnerships improving his credibility and status as a designer. His most famous collaboration to date was his partnership with Adidas. Starting with the !Signed project in 2002, Scott created a silk jacquard featuring a motif of money, replacing George Washington’s face with his own. The money motif was incorporated into a small run of high-top trainers and later reimagined in a second run of shoes, named Money Wings 2.0.
His best known collection with Adidas came in 2008, which included JS Wings and JS Bears. JS Bears were covered in fur and featured bear heads at the top of their tongues. Wings has been reimagined and reissued in various collections over the years and is closely associated with the Jeremy Scott aesthetic. In the film “Suicide Squad”, character Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie wears Jeremy Scott high-tops with heels, from Scott’s 2014 collaboration with Adidas.
As well as with Adidas, Jeremy Scott has collaborated with Swatch, designed artwork for Smart cars and has had a longstanding relationship with Longchamp since 2006 (they even supply handbags for the guests that sit front row at some Jeremy Scott shows).
Jeremy Scott at Moschino
Jeremy Scott is famously known for reviving Moschino by boosting its sales and turning it into a fan’s favourite. Taking on the role as creative director in 2011 after turning down several other offers, he chose Moschino because it had a similar outlook to his view of fashion and because it used fashion as a form of protest. After redesigning the entire pre-fall collection, Scott showed his first Moschino collection in Autumn/Winter of 2014. Moschino had always been known for reinterpreting logos and being quite tongue in cheek, but Scott gave the brand a more American twist with bags featuring reinterpreted McDonalds logos and popcorn inspired dresses.
Jeremy Scott and Jeremy Scott Kids
Jeremy Scott designs are vibrant, fun and outrageous! His ‘Cowboys and Poodles’ collection inspired by a vintage shop on Melrose Avenue, featured rockabilly guitar prints, glitzy high-heeled cowboy boots and cow-print denim and his 2016 collection featured dresses that included shards of mirrors and released smoke onto the runway from cleverly concealed smoke machines. Jeremy Scott Kids encompasses everything great about the Jeremy Scott aesthetic, with lots of the fun prints from the main line translating beautifully to kids wear.
