News & Runway


I usually love Moschino Cheap and Chic, the diffusion line from the Moschino label started in 1983 by master of quirky-chic, Franco Moschino.

So, I was a little disappointed to see that there were little references to Moschino’s humor and whimsical aesthetic in the Spring 2009 Rossella Jardini-designed collection.

That said, the collection did play into some of the major trends we have seen emerge during New York Fashion week mainly – jumpsuits, washed-out colors, mixing of prints and solids, slouchy hats, tiered dresses, and sun-bleached prints.

To that end there were fun, upbeat dresses done-up in vibrant colors and often accented with bows and ruffles.

A stand-out among all the brightly optimistic hues was a muted dress beautifully accented with a handful of tiered ruffles coming down from the neckline. 

Who would have guessed that the simpler looks would be the more eye-catching ones in this season’s Moschino Cheap and Chic collection?
