NYFW is officially in full swing and getting the party started is New York's very own Jeremy Scott. For his new collection, Scott has taken a step back and has chosen to enlist his personal creative journey as his muse looking toward the SS19 season.

In an Instagram post pre-show, Scott said, "This season for my show I took inspiration from old polaroids I took of myself from 1996 experimenting with make up and personas, gender bending looks and DYI hair styles I created on myself before I had a runway and models to express my inspirations and ideas for the world to see. 'Meta Muse'."

Using his own archived imagery, Scott emblazoned hoodies and totes with the throwback selfies creating a framework for the entire collection. Other imagery like pro-basketball logos and Pokemon pranced down the runway as well as pieces with the words "shock", "sex", and "future" vibrantly patched onto them; a clear callback to his unmatched archive of pop-art-esque aesthetics.

Mr. Scott paying homage to himself is far from any form of narcissism as his spirit in the fashion community at large is an iconically influential presence that coins him as truly an original.
