Milan, Italy – The brilliant Jeremy Scott finishes the second day of this Milan Fashion Week with a thrilling show and new Spring/Summer 2016 collection for fashion house Moschino.
If the black and yellow striped pattern of the show invitations -motif already seen on the “Under Construction” signs- had already let us suppose the next Moschino’s trend for SS 2016, while taking a look at the catwalk even the last doubt fades.
Suddenly we find ourselves in the middle of a construction site, within the messy city traffic.
Traffic lights, road signs and neon lights are the background of a collection that is able to summarize it all, and turns it into couture. From the dark of the runway and the lights of the fake city, we can identify reflective fabrics and neon colors of high-visibility jackets, the orange of the safety nets, the red and white of the barricade tapes, the black and yellow motif of the danger signals and the red of the “Shop” signals.
Sporty and casual lines are combined together with 50s silhouettes, brilliantly played down by the adoption of a colorful palette, new materials and crazy prints.
Car Wash brushes in the middle of the catwalk turn on, playing a key role in the last part of the show. Situation has changed: from construction site to Car Wash, a new wave of clothes comes out together with thousands of soap bubbles. Brush-dresses, completely covered up by fringes and feathers, are the highlight of the moment.
Moschino’s Creative Director since 2013, Scott has been able to re-launch the brand with bold collections. Thanks to his boosted creativity and strongly influenced by Pop culture, he takes inspiration from anything, giving it new life in the creation of collections that have made him so popular and appreciated till now.
