Jeremy Scott has always brought a refreshing dose of exuberance to the runway and his Spring/Summer 2017 collection entitled 'Slime City' delivered just that. A blanket of anxious quiet came over the hungry editors, stylists, buyers, celebrities, and fans alike as the lights dimmed. When the first beats hit our ears, our eyes and minds were filled with tongue in cheek sensuality that only Jeremy can concoct.
Leather and vinyl fetish inspired looks combined with peep show promotion posters to give us a sexy start. Cutout leather dresses and stilettos structured with his name floating across the side of the foot were intoxicating. Bags and jewelry made 80s new wave geometry feel fresh and current. Some of my favorite prints featured an expanse of business building windows dripping with slime and a portrait close up of an 80s new wave vixen that was featured on my personal dream girl, Anna Cleveland.
An outrageous duffle bag in the shape of toothpaste tube emblazoned with Scott's name is on my Grail List!!! Men's wear was ultra sexy, showing leather pants with O-Ring built-ins across the waistband and tops with a nod to the naughty underbelly of NYC. And then...the evening wear. Sheer paneled jumpsuits and short dresses giving a kaleidoscope effect of flesh and jewel toned fantasy.
Just when I thought we had reached the climax of the collection, he sent down an army of geometric femme-fatales that dared you to try to stop them. Jeremy blew my mind with sequined bodysuits, triangular prism skirts, and dresses with circular structured that were part sci-fi, part Studio 54, and all dripping with his seductive, bold, signature style. It's apparent Jeremy's heart bleeds a type of pop glamour the world desperately needs; and we could all use an infusion.
