Milan Fashion Week: Moschino Autumn/Winter 15
Loony for the 90's
If Moschino's Autumn/Winter 15 lineup is anything to go by – Jeremy Scott had a riot putting this collection together. Scott has tagged this collection with an unmistakable 90's hip-hop signature. What are we taking away from this collection? In a word – quilts.
Nothing is more 90's than quilted fabrics, large quilts in prime red leather, prime yellow and prime green padded sheen. Quilts were everywhere, like an eager 90's calling card. This compounded with the stripped back colour chart that could have been ripped off that wall of a pre-school class-room. It was basic and it was fundamental, but that was kind of the point.
The hip hop swag was not turned down, gold chains embellished hats and necklines, gold and denim were worked into patchwork. The hip-hop revival of the Loony Tunes made an appearance in a series of oversized short jersey dresses, styled with bare legs, modelled by five models in unison, who could have been pulled right from the cheer squad for Michael Jordan's team in Space Jam. And on that note, 'balling' was definitely on Scott's mind as sports motifs seeped through two piece ensembles, from basketball to baseball it was all covered. Lest we forget that moment in 90's styling.
The line up concluded with the eveningwear offering that retained the theme with dedication. Long column silhouette gowns were tagged by graffiti giving them the same edge treatment that the day-wear received, while oversized peplums swept down the sides in a softer touch.
