Opinion: Jeremy Scott At Moschino
In October, the 30 year-old Italian fashion house announced that LA-based designer Jeremy Scott will be taking over from Rosella Jaradini as Creative Director.
This is kind of a fashionista Cinderella story since the Missouri farm boy interned at Moschino during his last year in college.
I normally love when design houses do the Creative Director switch because of all the buzz it creates but this time I needed a while to let this one sink in.
I’ve finally decided how I feel about this decision: I’m on board. Skeptical, but on board.
I’m a huge fan of Mr. Scott’s own line. His quirky and OTT yet wearable designs are always on my personal wish list like his work for Adidas.
Moschino is trying to basically re-brand itself. Bring itself into the new and now, take risks and all that jazz so I understand why they chose JS. I mean, he is new, now and always takes risks.
Both houses have a few things in common like humor, twisting ideas, blending elements and they’re both a bit whimsy.
My only concern is that Jeremy has a very strong design aesthetic that works for his line and his brand but won’t necessarily work for Moschino.
I just don’t want this legendary fashion house to go over-board on its re-branding. I think the clothes could sell like hot cakes if done right but for all that is pure and chic, let Jeremy not pull a Hedi.
The last thing anyone needs is for yet another house to lose that European luxury aspect. Let that remain and everything else will be a bonus. The fashion world does not need a new YSL to Saint Laurent switch.
Rihanna For Balmain Spring/Summer 2014
I love Rihanna (as far as her being a fashion icon goes) and I obsess over Balmain so I was beyond excited when I heard that these two edgy fashion power houses were teaming up.
Firstly, I must say I’m glad that she’s fully dressed in this one unlike in most of the photoshoots she does. There’s only so much side boob from the same person one can take.
I also really like the background.
But I think I may have been too excited because I find myself being quite disappointed in this campaign.
Her face and head placement in the shot where she’s waring the blue off-the-shoulder top is horrid. I refuse to believe that that was the best shot she had in that outfit.
We lose her neck in the shot in the leather long sleeve jumpsuit and it all goes down from there.
And why is her hair like that? I can think of 17 hairstyles that would’ve been better on her and looked better with the clothes.
There are only 2 presentable shots in this campaign but I’m still far from satisfied.
All I’m saying is given Balmain’s past campaigns and the fact that they landed one of the most edgy and fearless artists out there as their model, this could’ve been incredible but it’s nowhere near that.
*A Tad Bit Obsessed*
I may be one of a small group of fashionistas that absolutely adore Demi Lovato’s style (yes, including her hair).
I feel like she’s finally learned how to dress for her body type and style.
Even though a few of her looks are flat-out ugly to me, for some reason them being on her make them so much more appealing.
I’m a sucker for her punk rock chick style.
I’m getting that hair as soon as I find a weave in that colour!
