STOP! CONSTRUCTION ZONE: MOSCHINO SS2016

“Expect severe delays,” read a sign outside as a crowd jostled (and in some cases punched) its way into Moschino’s tent on Thursday evening. The yellow hard hat invitation guests had been sent earlier in the week proved a prophetic prop: in gaining entry to one of Milan’s most anticipated shows, head injuries were a given.

Jeremy Scott turned Moschino’s Milan fashion show into a construction-chic zone, with traffic cones repurposed into hats and headgear. The Powerpuff Girls, a fixture of the aughts, also factored into the looks!

Red, orange, black, yellow, white with a lot of neon.

The accessories served up one visual pun after another. There were toolbox and lunch-box bags, tail-fin sunglasses, and caution-tape sandals. As for the clothes, they were the tony uptown answer to last season’s below-14th-Street streetwear. Chanel-style skirt suits came in flashy neons with flashier reflective-tape edging; others had Cristóbal Balenciaga–worthy volumes. Scott played fast and loose with Chanel-isms, most literally and perhaps dangerously with a print of interlocking C clamps. A pair of petticoated satin party dresses with taillights lifted off a ’57 Chevy looked like a subtler (if you can call it that) reference to Thierry Mugler’s iconic corset.

I had the opportunity to watch the show and I really LOVED it, I was amazed. Totally fun, with so much colours, the models were having definitely the time of their lives on the runway. Totally worth it!!!
