I love Moschino – especially the house’s diffusion line Moschino Cheap and Chic. Though recreating the cheekiness of Franco Moschino has been tough ever since the designer’s passing, Rossella Jardini has been doing a good job since joining the house (and die-hard Mochino fans can visit the Moschino Hotel, which recently opened in Milan).
This season, the designer – who took over the Moschino house in 1994 after Moschino’s death – had her models come walking onto the runway via a giant pink back-lit heart-shaped entrance. The entrance was a perfect introduction for the fun, vibrantly colored frocks that made up the collection.
Of particular note was the recurring flower-theme that found its way into sunglasses, shoes, and hats, as well as the signature Moschino over-sized bow that notably, in crimson red, adorned an off the shoulder Spanish-influenced top with a row of similarly red ruffles. A number of looks had words stamped on them, from a t-shirt dress that was cinched at the waist with the word “shocking!” to a sheer black top with “peace” on it. Jardini managed to deliver an abundance of wearable looks. The accessories were also noteworthy, particularly the shoes, which were flat and boasted organza carnations.
