WE KNOW YOUR LIPS ARE (MOSTLY) SEALED. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE COLLECTION?
"What I can promise is that, of course, there will be fun and colour and cartoons. Of course, we have to have cartoons! Like all my collections, it’s humour meets haute couture meets the street. That’s been a hallmark of my work for Moschino, and I want to continue to explore that with this collection. For fans of the brand, it should feel a little like a greatest hits collection, but I promise it will still be new, still feel fresh, even as we include some winks, some hints from the past."
WHO’S YOUR IDEAL CUSTOMER FOR THIS COLLECTION?
"Who do I want to see in the collection? Everybody. I want to see all the cool kids that want to wear my clothes, but can’t afford them. I want to see it in Japan, in South Africa. When I met Trevor Noah, whom I’m a huge fan of, he said, 'Are you the real Jeremy Scott, with the winged shoes?”' I was like, 'Trevor! Don't do this to me. I love you.' He told me about how people in South Africa really wanted them. With this collection, we’ll be in South Africa. I want people to go out and dance in the collection, have fun, meet the loves of their lives, feel on top of the world, take a million selfies, and keep them forever. I want people to make memories now and then to find them in 2028 or 2038 and put them on again and be like, 'Oh, this is so great. It’s so 2018!'"
