Pyer Moss’s Kerby Jean-Raymond makes ‘Insecure’ cameo on HBO – Footwear News
HBO’s “Insecure” just got the haute couture treatment. In Episode 2 of the final season of the hit Sunday night series, fashion fans noticed a surprise appearance by none other than Pyer Moss’s Kerby Jean-Raymond.
Turns out the designer wasn’t just working on his acting chops.
In this episode, Issa Rae’s character Issa Dee teamed up with a future designer “Crenshawn” (played by Kofi Siriboe) to help with the production and sponsorship of his latest fashion show. And to make the scene as authentic as possible, “Insecure” costume designer Shiona Turini teamed up with real designer Jean-Raymond to create a complete collection tailored for the stage.
“I thought it would be interesting to collaborate with a real designer who mixes streetwear and haute couture because that fit the storyline,” Turini said during the post interview on the episode of “Insecure’s” on HBO. .
She said she worked with Jean-Raymond on the molding of the models, fittings and construction of the clothes to create a complete fashion show.
In the episode, you’ll see Jean-Raymond sitting in the front row and congratulating Crenshawn on the presentation. The fictional line’s standout looks included blue and red bandana print ensembles, including a bomber jacket, face masks and a bodysuit.
This is not the first time that “Insecure” has brought style to light. Last week, Yvonne Orji’s character Molly had her designer Amina Muaddi heels stolen in a hilarious moment.
“You want the shoes, take the damn shoes,” Molly said in the scene. Issa proceeds to offer him basic apartments, to which the thief replies, “Oh, no. You can keep them Issa. Keep them.”
