Jeremy Scott is all thumbs — 10 thumbs to stick in the eye of the fashion establishment, that is. He even started his show nearly an hour late for tardy Katy Perry. The loud boos that greeted her arrival eventually yielded to a few cheers.
For his runway debut at the house that the late Franco Moschino built, the Missouri-born designer held nothing back, kicking off with a silly series that riffed on McDonald’s with a french fries-inspired mink bathrobe coat, a four-pocket jacket bearing the slogan “Over 20 million served” and a chain-handle bag carried out on a brown plastic tray.
