Moschino X Gilbert & George Fall/Winter '16
Jeremy Scott: “There are so many reasons why Gilbert & George’s work resonates so strongly with me: the saturated colors, the slogans, the provocative nature of so many of their subjects. I feel not only a visual attachment to their art but an emotional bond as well. So it’s an honor to bring their art into my fashion and create a hybrid of the two.” Can you imagine when great artists meet up for a cup of tea and envision greatness in the making, we can. When Jeremy Scott visited Gilbert & George for some proper English tea, the designer and artist came to the agreement to fuse their work. The 2D lively artwork (Pictures) with the designer clothes was predicted to be amazing. The 2D brings the illusion of depth and movement of photographic assemblies, while the artist emphasises dark indentations of shadow and flashes of light at fold and seam.
Gilbert & George were delighted that Jeremy loved their work so much, so they invited the designer to sample anything he desired from their archive of work for this upcoming collection. “How thrilling, Jeremy loves our art so much he wants to put it all over his trousers!” they said.
We can say that the result is astonishing, the wearable body of work revealing the British Art as interpreted in cloth by fashion. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated about this amazing collection and be the first to know the availability in stores.
