Jeremy Scott is nothing if not original. His eponymous, pop culture-influenced collections often buck the current trends, making his pieces collectors’ items season after season, as well as favorites among celebrities and “It” kids around the world.
Since Scott took the creative lead at Moschino, the same phenomenon seems to be happening: The designer’s fall 2014 collection for the Italian house, with its fast food and junk culture references, is already bordering on iconic — he even got supermodels like Linda Evangelista and Carolyn Murphy to star in his fall ad campaign.
Scott is certainly on a roll, and when his first resort collection for Moschino was unveiled Tuesday, we were expecting another conceptual (and slightly wacky) range that would eventually take over the red carpets and street style blogs. However, while browsing the lookbook, we found ourselves wondering where we’d seen many of these pieces before, and as it turns out, we’ve seen them — or, rather, versions of them — in Jeremy Scott’s namesake collections in recent seasons.
Between dresses constructed out of soda cans and printed with Coca-Cola-themed motifs to a red bandana twisted into a Western-inspired crop top, the designer touched on various themes that he’s shown before in some way or another over the last few years. While there’s nothing wrong with being self-referential, it seems like its a bit too early on for the designer to be reprising his greatest hits, don’t you think? A rep for Jeremy Scott didn’t immediately respond to our request for comment.
