Milan Fashion Week Menswear SS16: Moschino
There were regal influences at the Moschino Spring/Summer 16 presentation last night. Jeremy Scott pulled off another balancing act with his playful and irreverent collection that teetered on the edge of good taste. He was invited to present at the Pitti Uomo trade show as the guest designer, and it is his first presentation there since taking the reigns as creative director of the Italian brand. The designer referenced Giovanni Casanova, Louis XVI and the Moto GP in this collection that played with the distinctions between casual and formal wear.
Tail coats were formed from blue sweatshirt fabrics emblazoned with sporting motor racing iconography and matching trousers in reds and blues came with cummerbunds. The historic Florentine Palazzo Corsini venue came into its own when the Louis XVI inspired pieces came down the runway in the palatial setting. More tail coats and suits came in black and pink with gilded stitching and floral accents. And Scott couldn't resist some cartoon silhouettes across cropped trousers and shirts.
