The media frenzy at Jeremy Scott, orchestrated by the very hard-working Emily, Robyn and Kelly of People’s Revolution, just happened to take place in front of my section and lasted longer than the show itself. This was fine and completely entertaining.
Kelly seemed cheery and said to my section, “Is everyone good? You like my $100 Jeffrey Campbell shoes? Recession chic.” Kanye seemed pleasant and happy to be there and Solange looked pretty and really skinny. Oh and Waris Ahluwalia and Terence Koh sat across from me and are thus in every one of my pictures of boys in assless chaps and girls in trash bag outfits, which I find pretty amazing.
The collection appeared to be inspired by trash. Or was it a literal interpretation of “streetwear?” There were shirts that said “Help Wanted” and “For Rent,” others that looked like movie ticket stubs and grocery bag-inspired dresses that said “Thank You For Shopping Here!” and “F*ck You” (without the asterisk) instead of “Thank You.” There were dresses with skid marks and rain coats with footprints.
There were also cone bras and lots of black leather and the hair and makeup was so exactly what Gaga is doing right now (on her off-time, like when she’s at baseball games or the airport) and there just had to be some sort of connection because Jeremy Scott showed two outfits that appeared to be made out of bacon.
Oh, and the last look was a straight jacket wedding dress. The whole situation was ridiculous and amazing. Easily the most entertaining show of the week.
