That crazy neon trend from Spring 2011 is running over into Fall 2011. New York’s resident designer for the club kids of the aughts, Jeremy Scott, presented a collection yesterday that was all shock and awe.
Opening with a red tank reading “Enjoy God” in Coke’s signature script with a yellow mini, Scott continued along his rebellious, comedic road for autumn. There was a “Dial a Tee Shirt” tee dress with a real address and phone number, a sequined sports’ jersey mini dress, drug-printed separates, and a new take on Superman’s classic garb.
However, the looks sure to make an impact were the neon pink angora sweaters that add just the touch of pizazz our wardrobes need. The show hit a strange note when a cobalt and orange horizontal striped dress came down the runway, the model holding a faux-fur fox in her hand. Was it a dig aat Prada SS11? Or an homage to the master of tricks?
Adding to the fun was the amazing hair by Eugene Souleiman. Zigzag parted pigtails with rainbow streaks topped a face of color-crazy makeup, and even though it sounds like a visual overdose, it worked so well with the collection. The styling was just about perfect, funny but still serious, and the music blasted so loud, I think Milk was actually shaking.
