Actually, sometimes fashion manages to amaze us. Not only for the inventions, for the humor of the collections but also for the very particular way that the Fashion Designers have to reinvent the times and the vintage.

It is not an easy undertaking! Every year they need to invent 4 collections (2 pre-collections and 2 fashion shows) and the ideas end up running out. For this reason they draw from the past, sometimes they copy it , other times, and here is the genius of a designer, is reinterpreted giving new lifeblood and actualizing it in our present. You can have futuristic visions of past fashions or interpret the present with vintage tones, but if you do not draw on your creativity to create a beautiful and commercial product at the same time, you will hardly be included in the annals of history and you will increase your turnover.

All of this is the mission impossible of Jeremy Scott, fashion designer at the head of Maison Moschino.

Indeed, the difficult enterprise of the designer, from 2013, was to replace Rossella Jardini, the last creative director of Moschino, who brought with her the historical memory of the founder of the Maison, Franco Moschino. But it does not seem that this role and the spotlight on him have put him so much in crisis. Of course, some initial collection were objectively improbable, not very commercial clothes whose mission seemed not to sell but to cry out for revenge, for what we do not know!

Brilliant reinterpretations of Barbie, McDonald’s, cartoons or fetish always and only united by a single key: Pop. Today has again amazed us with a colorful collection (black, yellow, orange, fucsia and pink, vertical prints and degradè), fun, classic in its futuristic vision, but above all wearable!

 Like in Michael Jackson‘s song “if you thinkin’ about my baby it don’t matter if you’re black or white”, the models, more or less famous (Kaia Gerber, Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls) were forged by strong colors, which refer to an extraterrestrial vision of the first films of the sixties, just like the inspiration of the collection. 

Yes, the sixties, the fashion of Jackie Kennedy with her suits and the stylistic extravaganza of the mermaid dresses of Marylin Monroe come back forcefully revisited in a modern way. Suits in bright colors, fancy sheath dresses and foulards, it does not matter, in short, what your skin color is, the style is for all types of colors!

On the other hand, as colored, the collection remains supported by a choice of diversified materials, from leather to ecofur (finally more and more present among the different stylistic choices of the Brands), brocade, shiny crystals and metal links, as well as to the ubiquitous sequins, jersey and silk.

For the autumn winter 2018, Moschino then refers to a super woman, a safe alien creature of her awareness and style.

Maybe the only flaw was the little development of accessories for the fashion show. In short, the clutches in the shape of a beautycase as well as uncomfortable are not this great geniality, but you can not always have everything from life and so, we will settle for baby carriers, shoulder bags and Mary-Jane.

 Honeslty? YES.
