Cyrus and Scott’s friendship goes back many years. While Cyrus has always been unafraid to wear Scott’s wackiest, most eye-popping looks—whether from his own label, or his collections as creative director of Moschino—their most memorable collaboration came in the Andrew Cuomo New York Loves You Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this form of a series of artworks and jewelry pieces she produced for the designer’s spring 2015 collection. The riotously colorful pieces were collaged together, mostly from hundreds of knick-knacks her fans had thrown on stage, that Cyrus had collected over the years—and it was this DIY spirit they channeled while getting crafty over IGTV yesterday.
Andrew Cuomo New York Loves You Shirt, Long Sleeve, Hoodie, Sweater
Sporting a sweatshirt and earrings from Moschino’s recent Budweiser collaboration (Cyrus notes that the Andrew Cuomo New York Loves You Shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this latter were a Christmas gift from Scott), the singer brought out jars of jewels and studs she’d collected from around her home that she was planning to use to bedazzle and embellish a favorite pair of denim jeans. Scott, meanwhile, opted to take a vintage Donald Duck T-shirt and cut out the graphic to sew onto an old pair of Adidas sweatpants; for those without access to a thread and needle, he made the point that safety pins will work perfectly and can even give the piece a fun, punk-inspired twist. (Scott’s other top tip? “It doesn’t matter whether you have sewing skills or not,” he said, “but make sure you put a book inside whatever you’re sewing so that you don’t go through every layer.”) While there are plenty of ways in which you can use self-quarantine as a time to reset your fashion game—whether reorganizing your wardrobe, editing down your shoe cupboard, or hand-washing your favorite knits—it’s also an opportunity to have a little fun, too.
