Jeremy Scott produced another outrageously fun and crazy collection for the Spring/Summer 2014 season. For this collection, Scott was inspired by the 60’s—a major change from all the 90’s references on the runway this past week. Mini dresses and mod silhouettes are the first indicator of 60’s nostalgia, but it goes further than that. Scott is always influenced by something more cult-ish and kitschy.
60’s television is the real inspiration here. Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2014 collection is called “Teenagers From Mars”, referencing the “Space Age” phenomenon in 1960’s pop culture. Sweaters and tops featured sayings such as “Earth Sucks” and “Mars or Bust”. The Flinstones were another influence, showing in the animal print skirts/pants/dresses/etc., as well as a colorful pebble print. The most literal translation of the 60’s television theme was the TV color stripe bars, which made an appearance on dresses, boots, and pants.
Jeremy Scott doesn’t work with the trends every other designer uses, which is what sets him apart. He always finds new inspirations and creates exciting collections that speak to his aesthetic, as well as to his customers, who want fashion that doesn’t take itself seriously.
