By now, fans look to Moschino not just for those “irony” driven t-shirts but also for their themed fashion shows which correspond with their slapstick collections.
This collection, didn’t disappoint as Jeremy Scott created a show based on a metaphoric roadtrip from L.A. to Las Vegas. Exactly what would you see on the more than 200 mile journey, and more importantly…what would you wear? Obviously, you probably wouldn’t choose to wear a pink chiffon gown covered in pin up girls, but it’s wonderful to dream. The Moschino woman is never afraid of the notion of dressing over the top. For the resort 2018, Scott, like many other designers this season, chose to showcase men’s and women’s looks, giving the Moschino fans something that the whole family could wear.
The looks were a kitchy, very Moschino representation of western culture. The show started with things you probably would see at the start of your journey. Many of the looks were topped with cowboy hats and boots, patchwork denim looks and fringe jackets. The latter part of the show showcased what a traveler may see as they made their way closer to the glittering lights of Las Vegas. Their were suits for men as well as women that were decorated with flames, bra tops made to look like 8-balls and there were even a couple of showgirls. The sexual aspect of the show came from muscle bound male models who donned nothing more than small briefs and leather jackets. Others wore tight trousers that left little to the imagination.
The atmosphere of the show was almost a replica of the the “City of Lights”. The middle of the runway was an impressive display of large neon signs, with some depicting pin up girls, beer and cocktails and flames. With so much European influence on the runways, it’s always a breathe of fresh air to see a collection which is centered around American culture. Since moving to L.A. from Paris a couple of years ago, Jeremy Scott has looked to his new home for inspiration for the last few seasons, giving other designers a run for their money.
