Moschino Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Milan Fashion Week:#ITSLIT
Jeremy Scott, spin doctor extraordinaire, had built a pyre. The aim? Setting Milan alight. To that end, figuratively speaking, the first few looks revisited Franco Moschino staples: giant satin bows in purple, yellow and pink were secured with paste brooches and contrasted with zip-adorned black leather. A pink strapless dress with a leather bodice and an Eighties swagger was paired with a leather cap, 'Warrior Milano’ printed across its crown. A black velvet mini dress with an off the shoulder satin collar wasaccessorised with chains and a skull-and-cross-bones, prize-fighter belt.
Scott’s models were grim-faced – no smiling and singing along to Rose Royce this time around. They wore long black leather gloves, fishnet tights and biker boots, each festooned in pearls and chain necklaces at their throats and wrists, as though they’d rifled through the wardrobe of fashion’s favourite architect, Peter Marino, and run off with the spoils. Next came a denim section: tiny hotpants worn with slogan T-shirts and satin pink tops and skirts with Eighties trains. There were more slogans, more hot pants, more thigh-high boots.
