NEW YORK -- Jeremy Scott presented his men's and women's spring-summer 2013 collection at Milk Studios on Sept. 12, the penultimate day of fashion week here.
The inspiration: Scott titled his show "Arab Spring," and from the music to makeshift veils, there was no doubt that the collection drew inspiration from the Middle East.
The look: An ark's worth of animal prints -- snake, giraffe, crocodile and leopard -- roamed free-range through a collection of overalls, hot pants, halter tops, jackets and over-the-knee boots. What wasn’t patent leather crocodile print seemed to be flowing silk printed with Scott’s clothes hanger logo design, and gold chains.
In addition, there were two pieces -- a woman’s top and a mesh dress -- that, at first glance, seemed to be covered in hundreds of gold-colored house keys – but were actually miniature machine guns. In a departure from the last couple of neon rave-colored collections, the pieces Scott sent down the runway were based in a palette of black, gold and teal.
