Staying in the elements of bright colours and neon tones Jeremy Scott showcased his SS19 collection in New York City. Using images of himself in polaroids as the graphics on tote bags, dresses and hoodies Scott looks back on his personal creative journey as inspiration for this collection.
In his own words he shared on an Instagram post, Scott reveals, ”This season for my show I took inspiration from old polaroids I took of myself from 1996 experimenting with makeup and personas, gender-bending looks and DIY hairstyles I created on myself before I had a runway and models to express my inspirations and ideas for the world to see. 'Meta Muse'."
Using the words ‘riot’ ‘peace’ ‘future’ ‘resist’ in huge letters all over some of his pieces, Scott amazingly incorporates his political views in this collection with army surplus jackets, camo print skirts, dungaree-boot hybrids, bomber jackets, and jumpers.
Also adding Pokemon character Pikachu on the knitwear co-ords for the women and a hot pink sweater for the males, not to mention the basketball team logos and clear PVC fabric with diamonds, Scott managed to put together a mixture that has come together to make a great collection.
Jeremy Scott has approached fashion unapologetically and has remained just that and is why he is still such a big influence in the fashion industry.
Tom Ford displayed his latest looks for Spring Summer 19 at New York Fashion Week. Known for his sexy style and his contribution at Gucci (where he became the creative director in 1994) Tom launched his own label in 2006 but this season the American designer brought us a mixture of crocodile textures, leopard print and lace detailing. The collection showcased a number of silhouettes, mostly romantic and complimentary to women’s curves with sharply tailored looks. A sophisticated and corporate look was also displayed throughout, with tailored blazers that included a crocodile textured blazer which opened the show.
The SS19 colour pallet had a nostalgic vibe with champagne, silvery lilac, mauve, optic white and darker tones. He also included khaki green and black biker jackets. Recognised for his sexy minimalistic style, Ford plays with ruching and plunge necklines whilst displaying classy and slinky looks. Key trends that were spotted in the collection were the cowl neckline, full and midi length dresses layered with translucent fabrics along with velvet and satin created fitted silhouettes. A strong use of lace and crocodile accessories flowed through the collection, styled unusually with head scarfs and strapped court styled pointed heels.
Overall Tom Ford continues to display his iconic style, shaped from years in the fashion industry at Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, and his own brand. A sleek and chic range of Spring Summer looks perfect for the confident career-minded woman of today. Share your thoughts on the latest looks by Tom Ford below.
