Jeremy Scott decided to outperform the noise of the political landscapes that always impacts him with a collection dedicated to high-octane sound and the vision it inspires. Scott explains his collection as an “imaginary intergalactic sci-fi rock band”. He created clothing that channeled neon lights and glam metal wigs that convey a typical cartoon-like take on a page out of the American history book where outer space meets the eighties classics. Scott went on to say “there isn’t a pop star I haven’t dressed, so I thought I’d make my own band up; my own synthetic rock opera”
