Jeremy Scott is a man of vision. As Vlad Yudin, the director of the upcoming Scott documentary, put it, “With Moschino and all his recent success, he has come out to be an even bigger brand but still maintains his rebellious nature, so it’s an interesting take. I think that in the fashion world, he’s definitely one of a kind.”
The highly anticipated bio-doc will trace Scott from his roots in Kansas City, Missouri to his move to Paris when he was 21, and his ascent through the fashion ranks thereafter, along the way of course chiefly enjoying L.A. as his hat hanger. Beloved by Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry—he designed the latter’s spectacular Super Bowl halftime costumes, in all their left shark glory—Scott has always been a divisive figure in the fashion world, but, in his words, it was destiny, “I feel very fortunate that from a very young age I never had a choice as to what I was going to do,” Scott said. “I started designing because I needed to express myself.”
Jeremy Scott, with his appropriation of the pop logo and the tag may be following a long and prestigious tradition of subverting our notions of taste, but he’ll be moving at too maximally silly a clip to notice or care.
