Iconoclastic fashion designer Jeremy Scott is bringing his eclectic style to the homegoods space.
Scott, who serves as creative director for Italian fashion house Moschino, last week revealed a collaboration with Connecticut-based furniture company Lovesac. The limited-edition release features Scott’s take on the company’s recognizable deconstructed “Sac” silhouette—a foam beanbag seat that can be molded to the user’s preferred position.
Scott has created a Sac cover using a patchwork design inspired by a longstanding family tradition of hand-sewing quilts during his youth in Missouri. As a designer, he has been defined by a propensity to pull fragments of pop culture into his work, playing to boundary-breaking celebrity clientele like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Miley Cyrus.
“There are stories, emotions, and memories inside each and every patchwork design,” Scott said of his work for Lovesac. “This design pays homage to the quilted designs of the past, showing how pieces can be repurposed to create something useful and beautiful, while also bringing warmth, comfort, and style to living rooms across America.”
The Sac covers are made from the same roll of sustainably sourced quilted cotton, Lovesac said, lending quality and durability to pieces that marry the aesthetics of traditional quilting with “the functionality, coziness, and comfort of modern seating.”
“We’re beyond excited that Jeremy designed this incredible Sac cover for us,” Lovesac founder and CEO Shawn Nelson said. “This is our first foray into the high-fashion space, and Jeremy is the perfect partner because our design philosophies are so compatible.”
Nelson said that the company believes in taking a sustainable approach to creating its products, and that vision was underscored by Scott’s repurposing of the quilted cotton for the design. “This Sac Cover is perfect for those looking to be both bold and cozy with their space,” he added. The “extremely” limited release is available for purchase on Lovesac.com for $1,000.
While the partnership represents Lovesac’s introduction to high-fashion collaboration, Scott previously dabbled in home with Italian furniture maker Gufram on an irreverent capsule collection inspired by his designs for Moschino. In 2017, “Moschino kisses Gufram” debuted with a sofa, chairs, cabinet and shelving inspired by Moschino bags and shoes designed by Scott.
