As a child, Jeremy Scott would ring up the saleswomen at Bergdorf Goodman and ask them to describe in detail the Jean Paul Gaultier pieces they had in stock. Clearly, the Missouri farm boy was destined to become a fashion star. Now, nearly two decades after debuting his label in Paris, the designer, who is known for his jocular manipulation of mass culture iconography, is releasing his first monograph. Jeremy Scott (Rizzoli), which launches December 4 at Art Basel Miami Beach, chronicles the standout moments of his colorful career, from his 2001 send-up of American excess, featuring dresses covered in dollar bills, to his reworking of the McDonald’s golden arches for his premiere as creative director of Moschino—a collection that turned him into an icon in his own right.
