Jeremy Scott Sends Out Cartoon 90s Swag and Graffiti Gowns for Moschino in Milan
Fashion One brings you the latest Moschino collection for autumn winter 2015 shown at Milan Fashion Week. The quirky pop colored pieces were inspired by 90s street style and Looney Toons characters.
We speak to designer Jeremy Scott who tells us all about the collection and his inspiration for the upcoming season. He was inspired by street wear in general but in particular the energy of the New York street scene, as well as hip hop influences which were referenced in the runway backdrop, a giant Moschino ghetto blaster with double cassette tape decks. The gold jewelry and “bling bling” excess also added hip hop flavor as the designer played with puffer jackets and double sided peaked caps.
The fun collaboration with the Looney Toons cartoons saw the characters wearing the brand whilst emblazoning sweater dresses and baseball shirts in pop colors styles worn with sneaker mule heels stole the show. Scott also talks about putting his 90s urban spin on army surplus clothes and workwear, making it deluxe.
The evening wear pieces were elegant full length gowns with trains in glittering black and white emblazoned with graffiti tags and stickers. Scott wanted to create the idea of a city mailbox or lamppost plastered in slogans and tags over time giving a vibrant energy to otherwise sophisticated chic dresses. Accessories included cute spray can purses and oversized hoop earrings, chain charm belts and gaudy medallions.
