Jeremy Scott’s Fast Food Fashion

An insider source at New York Mag points us to these photos Jeremy Scott
s fashion show last week. As the photo series demonstrates, apparently the high fashion you should sprint out to buy next fall is junk-food themed sleeper ware, complete with over-sized donut bracelets.

Pizza, hotdogs, burgers, fries and ice-cream are among the gut-busters showcased in the carnival of calories. We were into the one with the girl sporting a yellow cubic pattern until we realized those were fries. Note too that the face on the fry box bares a striking resemblance to Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Extravagant couture whereby a dress is transformed into a spindly, sequin encrusted clamshell? That we can deal with, but it
s simply stupefying that we should be expected to wear a giant burger shirt complete with 3D frilly lettuce detail. Not to mention disgusting.

Jeremy Scott
s bio states that his,
collections are narcissistic without apology, theatrical beyond compare, and designed for women who love to dress up and play the part of ultimate diva.
The ultimate double-whopper with cheese and bacon diva, that is. Among the celebrities sporting the gear after too many chocolate shake brain freezes are Bjork, Cameron Diaz, Christina Aguilera, Kylie Minogue and Madonna. The others we can understand but Cameron! You
re the virgin suicide from next door we wanted to take to the prom and bone on the top of Lookout Mountain! Two all-beef patties slathered in a Snickers bar is not your look, baby. Or for that matter, anyone else’s.

    Theres a fine line between high-concept fashion and complete hackery. Can you guess what this is?

    …when I tell you to turn the key, you do whatever it is that people do, when they told to do that…

    woah you askin’ or you tellin’, cause nobody tells Boxey Brown…

    I’m just sayin’ Boxey, now you know I helped you take your grandma to the hospital, that was my day off, and I just…

    That was no Grandma, that was a grocery bag!

  3. A couple of the dresses are actually pretty gorgeous. The ding-dong looking chocolatey one is nice and I adore the toaster-strudley dress wih the white zig-zags (although the eclair jewelry is a bit much)

    It’s important to remember that runway shows are often completely different than what is seen in the boutiques and department stores. It will be interesting to see how this translates into a salable collection come August.
