The definitive monograph on Jeremy Scott, one of the most creative and influential American designers working in fashion today. Jeremy Scott is an American designer whose sensibility has brought elements of humor, rebellion, and fantasy to the elevated culture of couture—from his earliest collections in Paris to the outrageous runway shows in recent years that led the New York Times to call him "fashion’s last rebel." Creative, original, and iconic, Scott is the voice of his generation, his work a colorful marriage of the ubiquity of cultural reference with the refinement of high fashion. Since the late 1990s—when he twice won the Venus de la Mode Award for Best New Designer—Scott has retained his bright and extravagant style while honing his vision to take each collection in a new and startling direction. Referred to by Karl Lagerfeld as the only designer worthy of taking over at Chanel, Scott also dresses the icons of pop, from Madonna to Rihanna, and alongside his eponymous collections he is creative director of Moschino and designs streetwear for Adidas. This book reflects all the style of Jeremy Scott’s world, from snapshots of fittings in his studio to Polaroids taken backstage at shows and editorial work from Inez and Vinoodh, Steven Meisel, Ellen von Unwerth, and Terry Richardson, among others. With an introduction by Jeffrey Deitch, this is a lavish survey of one of today's most iconic designers.
Jeremy Scott is a fashion designer based in Los Angeles. Scott directs his own label, a collaborative line with Adidas, and was appointed creative director of Moschino in October 2013. Jeffrey Deitch has been the director of both Deitch Projects in New York and MoCA in Los Angeles.
