adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott A/W 2013
Not one to shy away from the outlandish, Jeremy Scott always brings his unique perspective of fashion to the table, often referencing pop culture from the past to the present. Forming a tight-knit relationship with adidas Originals since 2003, Jeremy continues to design unisex apparel and footwear that is high energy, surreal and most certainly fun, playing with bright prints and unexpected shapes.
Jeremy Scott’s spring/summer 2013 collection is as eccentric as ever with influences from mystical feathered creatures to billiard balls. An all-over eagle print carries throughout the collection and is executed on Jeremy’s signature winged high top shoe. Other highlights include the JS chain cage track top with cut-out body and basketball jerseys reinterpreted with uneven hems, fringing and woven fabrics. His affinity for animals continues: there’s a leopard headpiece and a pair of sneakers adorned with sunglass-wearing poodles.
