Inside Jeremy Scott’s “Rated X” Spring Show

Jeremy Scott’s homage to New York City of the 1980s pulled inspiration from New Wave, skyrises, and even a glory hole.

In the battle of which decade we should be fondly remembering most at the most, Jeremy Scott cast his vote firmly for the ’80s. (Sorry 1990s). The designer honed in on a particular vision of the era, one that recalled the shapes and bold colors of New Wave with a healthy waft of cheap sex blowing in from a bygone Times Square. If the message wasn’t clear enough, Scott hit it home with a dress that read “Rated X” down the front. In the center a circle had been cut out. Yes, a dress that was inspired by a glory hole.
