After his cute Mouse Trap collection, I must admit I’ve become a proper stan for designer Jeremy Scott’s fun aesthetic, adept use of color, and young energy.
I was juiced to check out his Fall 2010 foray.
Sticking to a ‘cute’ ‘sporty’ theme, Scott rolled out his signature short club dresses, but this time in more subdued colors like black and gray. The relatively plain color palette had me wondering, “Where’s the fun?”
Scott highlighted his creativity with a few key garments, including a batwing sweater with Style knitted across the front, a bow back leather strapless dress, and a series of cocktails and jackets with fun jewels and embellishments:
All in all the collection was good, but it didn’t excite. Even the off the wall, impractical pieces…
…would be too tame for some of Scott’s most eccentric clients (Jeremy Scott fan Lady Gaga would look like a nun in those).
Like most designers, Jeremy played it safe. While larger houses like BCBG Max Azria has the department store regulars on lock, Scott has a following amongst industry trendsetters who make his pieces come alive thanks to their unique essence. Bring back the ruffles and razzle dazzle, Jeremy!
