Jeremy Scott sends models in scorched dresses and chandeliers down the runway at Moschino!

Inspired by Tom Wolfe’s 1987 novel “Bonfire of Vanities,” Jeremy Scott delivered a Fall/Winter 2016 collection that reminded us of an ancient but decrepit manor house. Instead of the usual pop and cartoon details, there were scorched dresses, chain and crystal details that mimicked skeletal structure and plenty of silk, leather and denim. From singed poufy dresses to 80s inspired denim and leather combos, there was never a dull moment at the show. At one point a model wearing an actual chandelier walked down the runway.

The backdrop to the show was a junkyard filled with aging furniture, picture frames and other odds and ends.

The show was packed with references to 80s OTT fashion.

Jeremy took “Le smoking” in a literal direction, several outfits referenced cigarettes, matches and smoking.

Some of the gowns were visibly “burnt.”

We feel for this model who walked in a huge chandelier.

Though a far cry from Scott’s usual use of cartoons and brand logos, this collection still had his eccentric take on the world. So would you wear a scorched dress out in public?
