Social media reigned supreme at NYFW and if there was one collection ready to be Tweeted, Instagram-ed and Vine-d into oblivion it was Jeremy Scott’s. The always exciting Mr. Scott knows what his audience wants and he knows how to deliver it with pomp. Spring meant a spirited trip to Coachella or perhaps Woodstock, complete with psychedelic prints, flower crowns and the kinds of ‘look at me’ energy that has made the festival circuit a favorite of street style bloggers. Since Scott isn’t a designer prone to understatement, there was also a bombastic rave motif that unified the collection’s colorful, madcap separates. What look isn’t a little more fun when paired with candy necklaces and shiny Doc Martens? As always the clothes were only part of the story – Scott’s runway shows have become something of a NYC event and the commotion was heightened by the appearance of Ms. Twerk herself, Miley Cyrus. As the ultimate Scott devotee and patron saint to all in-your-face kids who will be lining up to get their hands on Shrek printed dresses and gold laminate hot pants, Cyrus fit right in with the spectacle.
