Jeremy Scott for Adidas

by | Dec 13, 2009 | ART

American designer Jeremy Scott is making a big splash in Adidas’ pond as he has put together a new collection for them earlier this year.

With this particular winged creation he has brought his originality and silly, playful attitude towards fashion to a very tight shoe game. These would have even Hermes trading in his talaria, for a new pair of these golden b-ball style sneaks. Gold isn’t the only color these kicks come in. I’ve spotted them in black, white, silver, rainbow and some rare white with red stitching. The Swarovski crystal version is a little too much for my tastes though. The non-bedazzled version of these kicks will cost you about $300.

Scott has recently been spotted paling around with Solange Knowles, Perez Hilton Johnny Makeup and Peaches Geldof on Twitter. The cheeky designer has dressed top fashion icon and celebrities like Madonna, Katy Perry, Kelly Osbourne, Beyonce, Bjork, Kayne West, Lil’ Wayne, and dozens of others. While his brand isn’t a household name just yet his designs are certainly worth a second look, even a double take.

Scott’s work often plays on socio-political parody and popular culture. Themes of his work include, money, fast food, the Flintstones and mummies mixed with a little bit of 80’s fashion throwback style.
