Moschino Jeremy Scott knows how to stick to a theme like magic and makes it come live in front of you.
Milan Fashion week has ended, but the hype is nowhere near to go away. This year’s theme was to go retrospective- “Italiana, Italy Through the Lens of Fashion 1971-2001”, remembering the formative years of the country’s ready-to-wear industry and the great names that built it. But Moschino had all my attention the moment it all started.
Scott has always been known as a fashion rebel and going irreverent with anything that is mainstream. When all the labels went 70s-80s, Moschino showed us a side of the 60s. And the collection reminded so much of Jackie Kennedy and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The show started with Kaia hitting the runway in a bright orange skirt suit. The look had a lot of silver zips which was completed with matching pumps and the classic pillbox hat. The look was a typical Jackie O and it was hard to miss the resemblance with what the hairstyle and makeup of the 60s.
Another important element of the collection was the incorporation of the 60s art – Kitsch.
These prints added so much more to the retro vibe, which in turn added so much color and vibrancy to the collection.
Remember how the 60s had a rage of outer space and cartoon-like Martians?
Making the models get body painted and walking the runway, to incorporate the outer space element, Moschino has left no stones unturned. Not to forget the intergalactic runway with alien spaceship blue lighting turned it into a full-on 60s retro look.
And how can the collection be complete without a Breakfast at Tiffany’s look?
Moschino has added a twist to this classic look with a quirky glasses and a touch of leather here and there.
A touch of fur!
Modern fashion with retro elements.
Gradually as the show progressed, women turned into sensual Marilyn Monroe wrapped in crystal and sequin-studded outfits. It looked as if Moschoni was trying to end this collection into the 70s and 80s and kind of fusing the modern fashion with retro elements.
A mix of Marilyn and Jackie!
Gigi closed the show in a full-length seafoam green gown with an open neckline. What with the teased hairstyle and the makeup, this looked like a mix of Marilyn and Jackie, with conservative clothing and footwear that perfectly channeled the former first lady’s wardrobe and the signature beauty looks of the immortal actress.
So that was the collection I went totally in awe with. Moschino has used every possible element of the 60s, from skirt suits to fur hats and not to forget the outer space touch. Jeremy Scott is one designer who knows how to transform the audience into the world that he has created with his mood board.
