Angeleno Jeremy Scott showed his anti-war side with a collection that mixed avant garde with wearability. Micky Mouse hats and combat boots made me think of Man Ray and Moschino. The collection consisted of knitwear, bathing suits, simple dresses and evening gowns in bold war-inspired prints such as barbed wire and the US Constitution. I especially liked the column gowns at the end of the show: one had with two capitol buildings covering the model’s breasts, another used helicopter propellers. Bathing suits were splashed with Scott’s take on the dollar bill. It was capitalism and violence all the way–with a little Disney idealism thrown in for good measure.
