Jeremy Scott - Money Makers

Money Makers

Karl Lagerfeld said in the newspaper Le Monde that Scott was the only designer who could ever succeed him at Chanel. Scott is known for humorous prints—splattering the essence of Fun and Fashion all over his clothes—and the carry-all bags he designs each season for the French luxury company Longchamp. The designer appeared on the cover of the English fashion magazine I-D in July 2007: the first designer to be featured there wearing clothes of his own design and shot as a self-portrait (with actress, model and muse Devon Aoki, whom he "discovered"). He also has appeared in the Larry Clark film Wasssup Rockers as parody of a fashion photographer, a performance that drew reviews praising his acting ability. Scott designed the now-defunct Manhattan night club Happy Valley. His photography has appeared on the covers of international fashion magazines such as I-D, Dazed & Confused, Purple magazine, and Les Inrockuptibles. His collection for the sportswear giant Adidas, a line called Jeremy Scott for Adidas, features apparel and footwear, including a winged high-top sneaker. The shoe has a wing extending from it, which became an iconic instant bestseller for Adidas. Scott has also created sneakers with teddy bears sprouting from the tongue as well as a pair with Mickey Mouse's face on the tongue. Working closely with the foundation for the late artist Keith Haring, Scott created a shoe and track suit bearing Haring's graphic art—a special project known as AdiColor, a collaborative venture with Adidas.

News sources that have interviewed Scott run the gamut from Full Frontal Fashion to CNN. Scott Has had Features in The New York Times, T Magazine The Herald Tribune, The Huffington Post, i-D Magazine, Dazed & Confused, NYLON, Purple Magazine, 10 Magazine, Numero, and Self Service. His designs have been featured editorially by publications such as i-D Magazine, Dazed & Confused, NYLON, GQ, ELLE, Vogue, Italian Vogue, Paris Vogue, British Vogue, Vogue Nippon, Korean Vogue, China Vogue, V Magazine,

Famous quotes containing the words makers and/or money:

    All that we call ideal in Greek or any other art, because to us it is false and visionary, was, to the makers of it, true and existent.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    Seeing is believing, and if an American success is to count for anything in the world it must be clothed in the raiment of property. As often as not it isn’t the money itself that means anything; it is the use of money as the currency of the soul.
    Lewis H. Lapham (b. 1935)
