The eleven-piece collection is launched today.
During his seven years as Creative Director of Moschino, Jeremy Scott has thrilled fashion enthusiasts with his eccentric twists on pop culture references. For a new collaboration with Hudson’s Bay in honor of the 350 Canadian retailerse birthday, Scott gave a selection of Moschino Couture pieces the Point Blanket look, adding the multi-colored striped pattern to unisex wardrobe essentials like a motorcycle jacket, waist bag, hoodie and fleece pants .
“I was instantly inspired by the idea of rendering the Moschino biker bag in Point Blanket’s signature wool stripes,” Scott says of the limited edition collection’s ideation phase. “I wanted to play with two of Moschino’s most recognizable icons, the biker bag and the logo belt; I also wanted to do a tracksuit and mimic the blanket, but in a brushed fleece for a really cozy ensemble that you’ll see me wearing all winter.
Read on to learn more about the collaboration, how he got his energy flowing during the COVID-19 crisis, and what advice he has for creatives during this uncertain time.
Why do you like working with iconic designs like Point Blanket stripes? How do they inspire you?
Icons communicate visually instantly – you immediately know their history. My job has always been to communicate through fashion, so icons are key tools for me to tell my stories.
How has your creative process changed, if at all, during the pandemic?
I think it only strengthened my creative process. I have always been able to work well with limits and push the limits with my creativity even when faced with obstacles.
What are you doing during the pandemic to keep your energy up and take care of your mental health?
I started adopting flower arrangements to bring beauty and color into my home, as I had never spent so much time at home before. It really gave me a new relationship with my own home! I started painting on large sheets in my backyard and incorporating them into the arrangements, which was very therapeutic for me.
What do you hope to change in the fashion industry in the near future given all the conversations about issues like inclusivity, sustainability and more that we are seeing this year?
I’ve always been a proponent of including more voices in the conversation – remember, I’m the People’s Creator after all.
