Fashion rebel Jeremy Scott, who came to prominence for his anti-fashion rave culture referencing collections in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, recently became head of the prestigious Moschino. For his debut campaign for the Italian fashion house’s Fall/Winter 2014-15 campaign, Scott collaborated with famed photographer Steven Meisel. The collection’s runway show gloried in a kitsch aesthetic celebrating junk food and throwaway culture, with the photo series featuring 1990s supermodel Linda Evangelista casting the collection in black and white, no less dynamic through the lens of the master photographer.
