Jeremy Scott's spring 2013 collection was inspired by the Arab Spring. As such, he presented a thoughtful, nuanced meditation on the future of the modern Middle East.

Just kidding! This is Jeremy Scott we're talking about here—the man who created the Adidas shackle sneaker (and seemed genuinely baffled when people found it offensive.) His vision of the Arab world included a woman wearing a golden leopard-print veil over her head and not much else.

There were also several pieces spangled with AK-47 paillettes, and tons of scarves, including several on models clad in barely-there short shorts. Even the non-topical looks were over-the-top: Think blue snakeskin jerseys, thigh-high boots for men, and a corset decked with chains.
