In a season heavily marked by brilliant inventions and unexpected ideas, Jeremy Scott could not be less than his colleagues, for his Moschino’s Spring 2021 collection. He is, after all, the king of tridimensional and pop craziness. The collection- 41 looks in total – has been presented on appositely made puppets, which make us smile genuinely. According to Scott, this is the right way of giving some distractions to Moschino’s clients, otherwise overruled by the period and its problems – the pandemic but also the environmental crisis and the upcoming elections in the US. On the other side, puppets usually have a very strong meaning. They are not dolls, they are puppets indeed, moved by threads and never in control of their own actions. Perhaps that Scott has some satyric goals with his Spring 2021? Despite his pop and childish aesthetic he has always been very engaged with socio and cultural aspects of our society.
Despite the size of the garments, the collection is incredible. Everything is curated in details, made of layers and different fabrics, smart seams and special additions, like feathers, crystals and laces. This attention is due to the renewed interest for couture, which, according to Scott, is not only gaining a new following in the fashion system, but in our society as well. Couture is not only a way to show off, but also the best way to appreciate the refinement of garments made by impeccable professionals. Ironically, this is a very wearable collection, if compared with previous ones by Jeremy Scott. Every aspect is to be praised then, from the garments to the accessories, until the little puppets of famous journalists and personalities of the system.
