Jeremy Scott’s latest Moschino runway was a model walk of fame down a constructed spectacle.
Proceed With Caution
From the moment the Canary-yellow Moschino branded hard hat arrived in the post, we knew we were in for another Jeremy Scott special at Moschino SS16. Would models be doubled over electric drills seductively gyrating to the sound of Benny Benasi’s “Satistaction”, or would they be forming a chain gang to the theme tune of Bob The Builder? Neither, it was better.
With yellow and red road signs that read “Dangerous Couture Ahead”, “Couture Detour”, “Models At Work” and “Delays Ahead, Take Alt Outfit” framing the catwalk, it was no surprise the clothes set to define Moschino SS16 were high voltage. Think a kitchen cleaner printed two-piece, road sign stamped swimwear, Disney princess style prom dresses in acidic shades of turquoise and pink, caution tape cocktail dresses, tragic come hats and feather pompom structures.
At The Carwash
This wasn’t your standard catwalk. Three gigantic car wash type structures arched over the runway, later put into operation to the sound of Rose Royce’s “At The Carwash” (almost knocking out a daring photographer lying flat – to get the perfect shot – in the process). Whilst bubbles were pumped out into the crowd, the likes of Hollie-May Saker, Anna RV, Bella Hadid, Binx and Molly Bair danced through the car wash spinners captivating Scott’s loyal audience.
Barbie, Looney Tunes, the Moschino bear… Where Scott takes us on his next Moschino adventure is anyone’s guess, but here at Wonderland, we’re praying for Disney. You can always count on Scott for one hell of a show.
