Three words came to mind when I checked out Jeremy Scott’s limited edition range for Adidas Originals- outrageous, outlandish and over-the-top. There were poodles on the shoes, wings on high-top sneakers and chain-lined jackets. That’s partly the reason famous people like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and MIA wear Jeremy Scott.
Now that the Limited Edition Jeremy Scott collection is in India, the eccentric designer’s work needed a closer look. The bright prints and unexpected shapes are worth a peek.
While Jeremy Scott’s winged shoes aren’t really for everyone, the designs seem to be miniature works of art (they were certainly displayed like art in the Adidas Originals store!).
The colours are attention-grabbing, and I couldn’t help but stare at the winged shoes. I tried on the sneaker wedges– they’re cute, add height and unlike other heels, they don’t hurt.
The shoes and clothes in the line are as wearable as you want them to be. For instance, I’d wear the sneaker wedges with a neon tee and jeans, an oversized top and shorts, or even a girly blouse with a skirt. I’d then skip on the other accessories. The cut-out jacket is another winner if you’re the sporty types.
And what about the signature winged shoes? They’re a beautifully-crafted pair and I can imagine quirky fashion experimenters who love to shock people wearing them. I don’t think I have the personality to carry off such styles, but there are people who do, and they would rock Jeremy Scott!
Jeremy Scott for Adidas is available at selected Adidas Originals stores across India. Prices start at Rs 8999 for a pair of shoes.
