I always get excited for the Moschino show. Why? Because it’s hilarious and a bit of fun, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Needless to say, I was eagerly waiting for the Moschino SS16 show. Since Jeremy Scott has been in charge of the reigns of this well-established Italian brand he’s brought his brilliantly clever and comical designs onto the catwalk (and into our wardrobes). One thing I absolutely die for at Moschino at the moment is the use of household brands/cartoon characters in the clothes…truly genius. I’m still dying over the Looney Tunes collection (need the Bugs Bunny baseball jersey).
Another reason why I love Moschino so much is the touch of gangster that oozes through the clothes…a lil’ smattering of bling, a lil’ baggy t-shirt dress, sum low slung pants. A lot of the pieces themselves are super lady-like, very Chanel suit-esque, then Scott skips a long and plays with the patterns of the whole thing and turns it into a game. A fun fashion game. And this time Scott was playing with 3 concepts: construction, The Powerpuff Girls and…wait for it…a car wash. Getting inspiration from the weirdest and most unexpected things ever, Scott went ahead and gave Milan Fashion Week something to think about.
So high-vis is a thing, yes, high-vis like Pete the builder who cat calls at you…steal his jacket- in suits, in dresses, reflective strips on shoes. Orange traffic cones turned into…dare I say it…handbags and headpieces. Scott thinks of everything. Carefully placed caution tape wrapped around the models in the form of prom-like huge bow princess dresses and the hilarious t-shirt dress with “Moschino: Slippery when Wet” paired with patent traffic chevron inspired over the knee boots. Then there was the Powerpuff girls, followed by…the Moschino car wash. The only car wash I wish to frequent. You just need to see the photos…I can’t even talk about it. It’s glorious. Now, the thing about Moschino is that you’re probs looking at the looks and you’re like “yeah that’s cool and awesome but I, nor any normal person, could pull that off”…INCORRECT. Individually these pieces would totally elevate and being a little comical aspect to any outfit. Do you trust me? No?…well, you should.
