Moschino takes its viewers on an adventurous little voyage into fashion land with this series of looks inspired by the 1939 George Cukor film 'The Women'.
Autumn hosts a panoply of items and ideas, ranging from reworked pinstripe suiting to an iconic-ironic prairie dress all-over printed with physical cows on the prairie. Potato sacks are also cut into bell-sleeves, poufs and bows, imbuing irreverence and confidence into something otherwise deemed largely ignorable.
There is also a high-shine power-suit made of faux gold croc, complete with a tail. There are strapless sequined giraffe dresses and beaded leopard frocks, and a show-stopping mini with an embellished flamingo, its neck itself becoming the garment’s neckline.
From there, the trip continues - an outdoor series features full skirts, puff sleeves and a belted trench, along with an on-the-go kit. Brushes for blush, hair combs, tweezers and even a compact shaped in Moschino’s signature teddy bear, all included!
Moving ahead, the collection begins to boast ball gowns in voluminous silhouettes, appearing to be hand painted in post-Impressionist brushstrokes. At the end, the designer enters the realm of 1940’s evening, with pale pink, fuchsia, black and gold-charmed dresses that seem as if they’re reincarnated off of a midcentury red carpet at Los Angeles’s Biltmore Hotel.
Remember, though, no matter the scenario, you should always consider wearing Jungle Red!
