Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Never one to shy away from effect, Jeremy Scott’s designs for Moschino’s fall/winter 2016 menswear line are the sartorial embodiment of the bold artwork created by Gilbert & George. Like the attention-grabbing works created by the famous British contemporary art duo, the new collection is anything but dull. Hot pink pantsuits clash against silky chartreuse shirts, and brightly colored daisies, crosses, and footprints pop against black jackets, knit cardigans, and collaged coats. Typography and phrases taken directly from Gilbert & George’s art are included throughout the line.
The most interesting detail of this collection, however, might actually be the most subtle; Scott sought to recreate the three-dimensionality of the clothing in Gilbert & George’s two dimensional artwork, The Pictures. In order to create the illusion of depth of clothing in their work, Gilbert & George emphasized the dark indentations of shadows and the highlights along the seams and folds. The final result is a three dimensional illusion imposed onto the already three-dimensional pieces of the collection. This effect, in addition to the neon streaks of color in the models’ hair, artistic motifs, and progressive gender crossover, brings to life the still figures in Gilbert & George’s works.
