that's all, folks! moschino gets loony for fall/winter 15
We speak to Jeremy Scott about going Loony Tunes for fall/winter 15.
Two thousand zero zero, party over, oops, out of time, so tonight we're gonna party like it's nineteen ninety… two? For his fall/winter 15 collection for Moschino - the third since he took over as Creative Director - Jeremy Scott tapped into his early-90s teenage years and gave us Looney Tunes, puffa jackets, baseball shirts, bling, and a gigantic boombox blasting Michel Gaubert's mixed tape of Kris Kross, Snoop Dogg, Malcolm McLaren, J.J. Fad, and RUN-DMC. i-D spoke to Jeremy after the show.
What were you wearing in the early 90s?
I've always been such an eclectic mix of things. I've never been one tribe fully. I'm always in my own world, which is kind of beautiful sometimes and kind of frustration at other times. I've always loved pop music and hip-hop music as well as country at the same time. You can Dolly playing at the same time as Salt-N-Pepa playing at the same time as Madonna. It's all on my iPod.
What made you want to do the Looney Tunes?
I love those things, and that's why I thought it would be so much fun having them decked out in Moschino on the Moschino, and just having that silly and fun way. I love the Looney Tunes. So many girls came in like, "What?! I love Space Jam!" So I wanted to play with that kind of element and have it kind of connected with the deluxe and the basketball and baseball jerseys as well.
How did you come up with the daywear?
I was really thinking about the street, maybe a little bit New York street. The way you kind of have to wear your outfit for the day and that kind of feeling, thinking about outerwear, things turned inside out and that kind of way of how hip-hop changes streetwear, workwear and army surplus, and kind of playing with deluxe and bling-bling, which I love.
And the eveningwear?
Of course I wanted to play with the eveningwear in a new way, so I thought I'd take the street and bring it to the eveningwear. They're not only graffiti, but they're tagged. They have that lived quality of a lamppost or a mailbox, even with the bike locks and chains. I wanted to capture that kind of mood of every corner of New York, but in some kind of new, elegant way.
