– EN Fashion – Jeremy Scott could soon be doing a Tom Ford and stepping behind the camera to direct a movie.
The Moschino head shared his filmmaking dreams in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter after unveiling a new line influenced by monster movies.
Asked if he had any ambitions to become a director after he worked closely with Universal on his horror-imbued line, he exclaimed: “I would love to! We are in Hollywood, aren’t we?”
Revealing the idea for his latest Moschino collection came about after he went on a private Universal Studios tour at the Hollywood theme park, Jeremy decided to pay homage to some of Universal’s most memorable monster movies, like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon. He also drew on films like King Kong, modern horror Scream, and ’80s classic The Shining.
Items from the 2020 men’s and women’s line include a Casper the Friendly Ghost T-shirt, jeans printed with Frankenstein stitches, a Dracula cape, a white tulle dress reminiscent of an Egyptian mummy’s bandages and a pleated white dress teamed with an oversized black gorilla hand which doubles as a cape.
“I love all these different types of horror in Hollywood cinema; I eat it all up!” Jeremy said, adding how the idea first came to him.
“I saw this idyllic, beautiful street (at Universal Studios) and it inspired me. I thought, ‘Something sinister’s going to happen here’ and I started designing the collection. And that’s when I started going around the Halloween theme. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon all originated here at Universal so I wanted to do an homage to them. A little spooky couture! And I thought about kids trick-or-treating. Some things are more sinister, some are more playful. That’s the thing about Halloween. Everything goes!”
