Clearly skate punks are having their fashion moment, first at Rodarte and now at Jeremy Scott. As Cara Delevingne opened the show with black Joan Jett wannabe hair, it was obvious Jeremy Scott’s muse this season was a badass.
The clothes were signature styles we’ve come to expect from Scott: cone bras, too-short cocktail dresses, oversized printed sweaters, men’s suits without shirts… no surprises in that area. The prints and graphics Scott referenced this season freshened things up, though. Giant angry faces, faux bois, leopard, and checkerboard prints were everywhere, from bikinis to the thigh-high boots models wore. And the faux fur! Lindsay Wixson closed the show in a full body, neon green furry suit, complete with hood and tail. It was so a-fashionable that it might actually be fashionable.
In the hubbub after the show I managed to chat with Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the mega-stylist who styled the show. Known for her over-the-top style, Carlyne was wearing all black, about ten gold necklaces, and two mini Chanel bags on a chain slung over her shoulder.
Hi Carlyne, how did you get involved styling this collection?
He asked me would I like to work on the collection, and I said, “Of course!” because I adore him.
What was your inspiration for the styling?
I have never inspiration, everything comes from my tummy out [Ed.note: We think she means 'from her gut' here]… I’m someone who it’s just in-stinct-if! I am not someone thinking and brainstorming; I’m not like this. I’m inspired and I go crazy. This is my way to work.
What was your favorite piece in the show?
I adore, adore, adore the Adidas colorful jogging suit and the monster at the end! This makes me insane.
What’s been the best part of your fashion week in New York, so far?
Absolutely this! This is my favorite show in New York! Because fashion should be fun. If it’s not you are bored.
