What do K-Pop, gummy bears and tambourines have in common? Well, they were all essential components to last night’s madness at Jeremy Scott’s Fall/Winter 2013 after-party. Noted for throwing a hell of a bash each season, Scott’s usual suspects of downtown club kids and freak show contestants donning his duds, descended upon Le Bain’s sweatier-than-thou dancefloor to toast his latest collection. Past seasons’ parties have boasted surprise performances from the likes of A$AP Rocky (Spring/Summer 2013), cameos from designer peers like Alexander Wang, and of course, memorably insane outfits.
“Inspired” by Rob Roskopp’s skater graphics, which sort of look like angry Spongebob Squarepants’ on acid crossed with Garbage Pail Kids; this season’s collection truly came to life off the runway and at the party. One guest traipsed around with a tambourine in hand, while another searched the floor for missing gummy bears, which had come un-safety-pinned from his shirt whilst dancing to The Misshapes’ set. Scott, posted beside K-Pop star, CL, of 2NE1, greeted friends, Natalia Kills, Kat Graham, Leigh Lezark, among others, while appeasing his fans and followers with the occasional Instagram pic. The party climaxed when 2NE1’s hit, “I Love You”, blasted through the fog and CL took to her feet to show off her moves. DJ’s Frankie Sharp, dressed in a totem-print Scott x Adidas Originals tracksuit, and Mazurbate in his signature cornrows, pleased partygoers with powerhouse sets of indie and pop remixes until the wee hours. Notably absent were Big Sean and Waka Flocka Flame, two of Scott’s hip-hop devotees, who sat front row at his F/W ’13 show… perhaps it was past their bed times.
