Jeremy Scott: The Cheese Stands Alone

A riot broke out at Jeremy Scott yesterday - and not because you-know-who finally descended upon Paris Fashion Week - but because the world was desperate for Scott's red-telephoned Longchamp bags. The one-offs were intended for rows one and two - home to Beth Ditto, Peaches Geldof, Cory Kennedy, Kelly Cutrone and Gareth Pugh - and the security guards were determined to do their job well - so well that we witnessed beefy French men grabbing them out of third row purses and putting them back in front. Anyway, Scott was inspired by Mickey Mouse. Capes and coats made of Mickey's white gloves and black and red mini-dresses printed with Mickey's silhouette marched out to "Hey Mickey You're So Fine." Then there were brightly colored coats and hundreds of buttons covering corsets and dresses, all on models topped with angular black bobs. At the end, everything was hole-y and one editor philosophized, "Britt, I think those holes are a metaphor for swiss cheese." It was like eating cotton candy in the middle of the gourmet seven course meal that is Paris Fashion Week.
