In January of this year, Mr. Scott opened up a Moschino shop in Los Angeles, where he can often be found, when he’s not working for the brand in Milan. That boutique, located on Beverly Boulevard, also has a gallery-esque feeling, as it formerly housed the Hadid Gallery. While the product carried in these bi-coastal shops is more or less the same, the customer base is completely different.
“A lot of the L.A. Moschino customers are celebrities and so a lot of the business is done with personal shoppers and assistants,” he pointed out. “It has a more behind closed door feeling about it, where I think NYC will be a lot more about the people on the streets, who are trying on clothes and buying for themselves.” Aside from adding this new retail location to the Moschino portfolio, Mr. Scott has a busy few months ahead. Not only is he prepping Fall women’s collections for Moschino and his own eponymous range, he is also readying for the impending release of a documentary that charts his rise to success, titled Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer. The film will debut on September 8, at a sure-to-be star studded premiere, at Hollywood’s Chinese Theater. It will hit theaters nationwide on September 18.
