Jeremy Scott debuted his show for Moschino Resort 2018 on Thursday, June 8th in Hollywood, CA. Scott’s starting point was a road trip from LA to Vegas that seemed to span various landmarks and eras, including homages to a wide range of archetypal American women and men. “From the pioneering grit and oil-streaked endeavor that helped make America great, to the sassiness, sparkle and sexiness that helped make America great — from shore to shining shore — this is a mixed-up celebration to the nation we all adore,” reads a press release about the women’s resort and men’s fall collection.
Pin-up girls adorned retro dresses and cardigans, while riffs on cowboy boots and hats accessorized many women’s looks; other Western motifs, like cowhide, snakeskin and patchwork denim were used throughout. Scott took some literal inspiration from hot rods, moto and biker culture, seen in studded leather motorcycle jackets and jeans, as well as a heavily employed flame motif.
The highlight of the collection included a collaboration with Playboy featuring different plays on the iconic Playboy Bunny.
