For Jeremy’s Scott’s first show at Pitti, Moschino went royally racer and imitated matador shapes, with all the theatricality of the 18th century.
There’s method in Moschino’s madness, somewhere. We’re sure of it, but it’s just hard to put links between Scott’s loudest themes: crowns, Moto GP bodysuits (made cute with teddy faces of course), jewel and agate prints, seductive black brocade worked into 18th century shapes and cropped like the costume of a bullfighter. That’s before we mention the cartoon creature outlines Scott worked into the collection, too.
What does it all mean? It means it’s 2016 and this is what fashion looks like. Literally anything goes. There’s no reason you can’t wear any of these looks any day of the year. There’s a pinch of everything in there, streetwear gets a logo splattered tracksuit and formal wear is everywhere – but only in extreme glam black or psychedelic colours. The traditional and the new are all smashed together in one saturated, commercial collection. It’s loud and it’s proud, and if you’re wearing it, you should be too.
