Lucky Blue Smith proud he 'survived' Moschino
Model Lucky Blue Smith is glad he survived the Moschino men's show on Sunday (10Jan16) after walking in glasses he couldn't see through.
The model-of-the-moment opened and closed creative director Jeremy Scott's presentation at London Collections Men in the UK capital. He looked quirkily dapper in a fuchsia shirt and tinted yellow glasses, shaded to look like they'd come straight out of a comic book. But Lucky's laid-back exterior was all a facade.
“I opened and closed it - that was cool," he grinned to vogue.com about the Moschino runway. "The first look, I was wearing the pink suit with the blue shirt and the yellow tie. There was a lot of pattern and it was really cool. Those glasses were pretty hard to see through - but we made it out alive. And the last look was a whole bunch of colours - a full look - and I liked that one the most.”
The second look Lucky refers to consisted of a multicoloured suit with matching shirt and heavy black lace-up shoes.
He may only be 17, but Lucky is a star on the rise in the fashion industry. With catwalks for Tom Ford and Versace under his belt, among others, he's quickly getting to grips with this new world.
“Being in this whole fashion industry, seeing it firsthand, I never realised just how much work goes into everything,” he said. “Designers want their clothes and their shows to be absolutely perfect, exactly as they imagined, and there is a great deal of work that goes into doing that. Some collections can tell a whole story, from the first look to the last. The way the colours and the clothes transition is very interesting.”
London Collections Men came to a close on Monday (11Jan16), with Burberry and Paul Smith among the fashion houses showing their new lines.
