Never one to shy away from the dramatic, Moschino Creative Jeremy Scott has always been a big fan of sunwear on his runway shows. For his SS18 Moschino sunwear line, created by Safilo, he hits on a broad range of trends. Below, he discusses his inspiration.
What’s behind this Spring/Summer 2018 eyewear collection?
There are many inspirations, ranging from 1950s starlets to punk ballerinas with spiky studs.
What are you searching for in a pair of sunglasses?
I feel like you can really enhance your mood by the sunglasses you choose. It’s like being in a role in a film. Sometimes I want something very classic retro with a twist that feels carefree and fun. Other times I want something that’s tough and makes me feel strong like a bad ass. Sometimes I want to wear something that will make me feel hidden in plain sight! And then still sometimes I want to wear something that says ‘Look at me!’ It all really depends on my mood and that’s why I want to create shades that can enhance all these different feelings and moments in one’s life.
Who would you like to have wearing Moschino sunglasses?
I’m very democratic. If someone loves what I do, I’m happy for them to wear it! I would like to see my shades on pop stars and stay at home moms, Wall Street bankers and rappers from the Bronx, starlets poolside in Hollywood and grunge punks on Melrose. I want to see them on everybody! All cool kids around the world.
