Originals remained hidden in the studio
We dare to say that our imagination is working at full speed. Nevertheless, we have one problem with the SS2021 collection. We can't seem to imagine how these luxurious models - a celebration of haute couture - will look on someone taller than thirty centimeters. The paradox is that Moschino left the life-size models hidden in his studio…
Downsize, enlarge, downsize, enlarge…
In preparing the collection, Jeremy Scott actually first created life-size outfits. These were subsequently adapted for minitaures. Each individual piece had to be precisely recalculated to match the size of the puppet, without causing the fabrics to lose any of their authentic properties. So if anyone worked their ass off for this year's Milan Fashion Week, it's definitely Jeremy Scott.
Are you wondering why the designer actually decided to take this step?
"The best thing I could do for everyone who is stressed about the election, the pandemic, social unrest, and the future was to give the gift of fantasy and take us away from all of it for a few minutes; let us enjoy this little fashion world of ours,"
Jeremy Scott explained. He even went ahead and created miniatures of a number of celebrities or leading fashion editors. The uncompromising Anna Wintour couldn't be missing.
The situation in the Czech Republic and beyond clearly indicates that things can escalate quickly. The Czech Fashion Week has been postponed a total of three times and it looks like that the American designer didn't want to leave anything to chance. When it comes to wooden puppets and online presentation, even the coronavirus can't beat this combo!
All that's left to do for us is applaud, show you the outfits our fashion editors can't live without next season, and hope that they'll be just as charming on us as they are on these puppets!
