When will the lesson “Prejudice is bad” just stay learned? What will it take for me to shed my hard armour of bias and bigotry and step back into the world pristine and uncorrupted as a baby? Perhaps the new Moschino show will be my path to enlightenment.
I thought I knew all about Moschino and I’ve ignored them for a long
time, but something made me look at the new collection and frankly I’m
impressed. There’s something a bit Victor & Rolf about the new
Autumn-Winter line. Eschewing the usual Moschino bright and brash
comedy turns, Rosella Jardini still managed to create a collection
which was both highly wearable but still playful. Tiny bow ties,
sequined jackets, striped blazers and capes with huge rosettes gave the
look of a French playboy whereas metallic leather shoes and biker
jackets gave the collection a sophisticated rock sensibility. Click on
pic for a close up.
It all gels together beautifully and is evidence of a clear sense of
direction at the label which I never knew the label had. All very apt
for the brand that bills itself as “fashion without prejudice”.
