Moschino’s dangerous couture
Moschino stopped traffic with a Milan Fashion Week show that boasted road signs, orange cones and high-visibility jackets.
Designer Jeremy Scott is known for his tongue-in-cheek collections and didn’t disappoint with his Spring/Summer 16 line in Italy yesterday (24Sep15).
Following Barbie and fast food themes of previous years was a traffic-inspired offering, complete with a model covered in warning signs. She strutted down the runway with a huge grin on her face, proving that fashion can be fun. A yellow mini dress was emblazoned with the words 'Warning: Dangerous couture ahead' and her necklace and earrings featured tiny traffic-sign charms. A printed bag and square orange sunglasses finished the look off.
Orange also featured in outfits based on the humble traffic cone. While some models wore netted coats in orange and white, one even sported a mini cone in the form of a hat.
In a nod to construction workers, girls also hit the catwalk in high-visibility jackets finished with a prissy pussybow. Headwear based around hard hats was finished with a small netted veil, surely a staple at quirky weddings of the future.
There were a few anomalies in the collection too. One model wore a poufy dress with a bold cartoon print, another strutted down the runway in a swimsuit with The Powerpuff Girls emblazoned on the front.
Another was adorned completely in yellow feathers, from her neck to just above the knees, finishing the look with strappy yellow sandals.
Moschino followed the Prada show, which went far more classic with its collection. Looking to London’s swinging ‘60s, there were muted tones and skirt suits, finished off with pomp om earrings.
Shows continue today (25Sep15), with Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Versace among those showing.
