Jeremy Scott turned back in time as he revisits the 50’s housewife theme. In collaboration with the great Australian Pop Artist, Ben Frost designed the latest Moschino FW18 launch invites in faux-candy-cereal packages.
Named Moschino Eyes, Kaia Gerber opens the show with a bright procession of Jackie O inspired look, that meant a well-tailored skirt and jacket suit ensemble in coral, perfectly coordinated with a pillbox hat and bouncy vintage bob hairstyle. At Moschino more is always more, it was a rainbow model alert cascading down a space ship looking portal stage. Few models appeared with their bodies full tinted in rosey pinks, Smurf blues and Simpsons yellows- maybe a warning that aliens are heading our way.
While every outfit was styled with matching mary-janes and patent leather gloves, there were statement coatdresses detailed with sliver zippers, including a multi-coloured long-sleeved dress printed with a kaleidoscopic Pop Art illustration of women crying in Moschino. From daywear to evening-wear, towards the finale Scott took a glam cue from Studio 54′s legendary parties, as he sends out a fully decked disc sequins dresses draped beautifully with luxurious silk satin.
No so much of an ordinary collection, as we see through Scott’s eyes as he goes on with extreme retro reference at full throttle.
