Marc Jacobs, Moschino, and the Most Stoned Runway Collections for SS17
These designers give a whole new meaning to “high fashion.”
Published on October 9, 2016

Fashion designers are known to draw from a potpourri of unlikely sources for inspiration. Typically, narcotics have a way of sneaking their way into the most hyped collections DNA. Some of the biggest names in fashion chose to show their love for marijuana in subtle and not so subtle ways for Spring 2017. So, you know MERRY JANE had to compile a list of the most stoned collections straight from the runways of New York, Los Angeles, Milan, London, and Paris for all the stylish smokers out there. These designers give a whole new meaning to “high fashion.” 

Palm Angels

Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Damn, I wish my adidas tracksuit had a weed leaf instead of that same old trefoil logo!?” Italy-based Palm Angels has answered your prayers. Stoner dreams do come true. Now you can finally get rid of that kitschy “ADDICTED” adidas knockoff tee that hasn’t been washed in months.

Ovadia & Sons

For those into minimal branding, New York label Ovadia and Sons produced a collection with subtle nods to everyone’s favorite greenery. Varsity jackets, work jackets, and distressed crewnecks all contain an embroidered Mary leaf patch.

Christopher Raeburn

Full disclosure: This one is a bit of a stretch. But take it with a grain of salt. We couldn’t help but think that Christopher Raeburn’s latest outerwear offerings with a shit ton of pockets would serve as the perfect jackets to hide your stash. You could move around carrying an ounce or more in each pocket with ease. We won’t tell if you don’t.

The ostentatious designer Jeremy Scott is heralded for his eye-catching designs. He brought his wacky vision as creative director of storied fashion house Moschino. His Spring 2017 vision was predominantly inspired by the flower children of the 60s and 70s. It features a plethora of high fashion garbs emblazoned with vibrant and eclectic prints like floral patterns and tie-dyed items. He brought it back to a time when hippies called pot “tea” and “reefer.” Respect to the groovy forefather stoners, dude.

Assembly New York

Assembly New York went for the super chill vibes come springtime. Its mens collection is full of clothing items that you’d find on your average beach bum weed head. See: relaxed fit button-up, baggy yin-yang embroidered shorts, and Teva-style sandals. Gnarly, man!

Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs produced the most controversial collection on this list by far. It wasn’t even because of the clothes, but rather his choice to send white models out on the runway with colorful dreads. Jacobs caught heat with cries of cultural appropriation, and made a brief but insensitive comment on Instagram when responding to a critic.

“…And all who cry ‘cultural appropriation’ or whatever nonsesnse about any race or skin color wearing their hair in any particular style or manner—funny how you don’t criticize women of color for straightening their hair,” the designer wrote.

Yikes. Regardless of the controversy, it’s no secret that dreads are largely associated with Rasta culture.

Olympia Le-Tan

The designers behind Olympia Le-Tan are the least likely to give a fuck about being stoners on this list. The highlight of this collection, shown at Paris Fashion Week, is a motif that pictures red lips smoking a jazz cigarette with a rainbow serving as the trail of smoke seen on dresses, denim jackets, and full sets.
