“I was thinking about a lot of stuff in the news. I was thinking about how people were talking about inflation, inflation, inflation. So I created a collection that literally inflates.” The obviousness a ribald reversal of sensibilities that makes fashion punk. Scott’s signature 40s/80s suits and proms preened in candy colored flotation. The ability to achieve one of fashion’s highest telos: self-deprecating cupidity. No noblesse oblige statement on wealth and its assorted troubles (of which usually expected from designers deploying this theme)… Designers use the dictum ‘fashion is fun’ as a lofty prophylactic for our brutal existence. But whereas most do this through pops of color and fringe, none transport Neverland like an inflatable Lichtenstein project runway… That a Katy Perry hamburger is a best in show reflects the state of today.
