OH Jeremy!!

Estuve viendo fotos de la nueva colección de Jeremy Scott... Si, sabemos que es y siempre ha sido excéntrico, controversial e irreverente en sus diseños, pero en mi opinión esta vez pasó de lo radical a lo ridículo.
Digo, ¿Soy yo, o la única persona a la que vería usando alguna de esas prendas es a Lady Gaga? De hecho, casi me pareció verla a ella misma desfilando en la pasarela…
Creo que esto te hace pensar, ¿qué es la moda en realidad?
¿Es conseguir gente famosa a la que le guste tu trabajo para que te de esa "aprobación social"? ¿o darnos cuenta de que lo que se está presentando en una pasarela no es una colección creativa e ingeniosa, sino una serie de contactos y relaciones publicas?
Pongámonos a pensar en algo por un segundo.
Supongamos que Jeremy Scott no es EL Jeremy Scott, y es cualquier diseñador desconocido,  ¿Qué pensarías de su colección? ¿En verdad te gustaría o pensarías que es un chiste?

Definitivamente la inspiración puede venir de cualquier lado, pero pienso que parte de la belleza y el ingenio de ser diseñador recae en la capacidad de abstraer un concepto y transmitirlo en piezas de ropa innovadoras y  USABLES, y cuando digo usables me refiero a que puedas salir a la calle sin tener a una jauría de perros persiguiéndote porque piensen que eres un pedazo de jamón gigante!

I was looking at the Pictures of the new Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2011 collection. Yes, we know he has always being excentric, controversial and irreverent in his designs, but this time I think he went from radical to ridiculous.
I mean, is it me, or the only person I would see trully wearing those clothes is Lady gaga? Actually, wait, I think I almost saw her walking down that runway...
It makes you think, ¿What is fashion really?
Is it getting a bunch of famous people to like your work in order to get that “social approval”? or figuring out that what is being presented at a runway is not a creative and clever collection, but a series of social contacts and public relations?
Let's think about this for a second, let's súpose Jeremy Scott isn’t THE Jeremy Scott and that he is some random uknown designer, ¿What would you think of his collection? ¿Would you really like it or would you think it is more like some sort of joke?
Definetely inspiration can come from anywhere, but I think part of the beauty and wit of being a designer lies in the ability of abstracting a concept in order to transform it into innovative and WEARABLE clothes, and by wearable I mean being able of going out without being chased by a pack of hounds that think your a giant ham.

    yo no se que hago aqui porque la verdad deberia estar estudiando pero bueno...la moda me llama jajaja
    la verdad siento que para entender este trabajo en toda su expresion debemos saber cual es el pensamiento detras de su colleccion no? para poder tomar una eleccion en la que ya estas plenamente informada!
    lo digo porque personalmente se me hace demasiado pero es como una obra de arte...tu puedes ver un cuadro que solo tiene un punto y piensas "esto lo hace cualquiera" o no entiendes el punto, pero a veces cuando exploramos las razones de esto podemos entender mejor la idea de este punto, la razon x la q esta ahi, porque esta ubicado en esa parte del cuadro y poque ese color de punto...
    nada mas son pensamientos locos de mi ser

  4. Well American style mentality consists of fitting in and being normal and classic. So why would fashion designers do their own thing? They would never be survive if they did things other than what was expected of their audience. As a designer I am choosing to work/create/show my work in Europe because the mentality of clothing is just completely different(clothing is styled individually), as is mine. Thanks for bringing this up...very interesting...I wouldn't have put my thoughts together if it weren't for your post :)

    thanks!

  5. I agree with you, and Im not saying fashion should be all the same, boring, or flat! I love a good JCDC or Viktor & Rolf, but what Im saying is that sometimes an unknown person who brakes stereotypes and dares to go beyond the traditional rules is called a freak, and on the other hand a well connected person who brakes stereotypes and dares to go beyond the traditional rules is called a genius!
    Do you see my point here?
    I really liked Jeremy's first collections, but in this last collection, yeah there where 2 or 3 interesting pieces, or very dramatic and exagerated clothes such as the ones shown on this post, but the rest? honestly, very boring.
    T-shirts, sweaters, and guys with a masochistic fetish leather & latex confusing and disturbing outfit... I mean, Come on!!

    Thankyou so much for your comments, it is great to read what you all think and your different points of view! :)

  6. I personally don't like to follow the crowd, but I see the designer for what they're worth---regardless of his/her popularity. I like creativity that's not found anywhere else. I tend to like designs that a lot of people don't like because to be honest, those designs are probably the best kinds!!
