PART 3 DESIGNERS OF THE SEASON: MILAN - MOSCHINO
This season has had plenty of trend setting catwalks to take inspiration from, for what's to be inevitable trends for the season. This four part series reads my instalment of our four favourite designers representing each of the fashion capitals of the world. Parts one and two below discussed Phillip Lim and Erdem; read on for my third instalment, taking a closer look at Moschino.
In a somewhat uncharacteristically disappointing Milan, Moschino was the show to make us smile and was enough to restore our faith in Milanese style. Stepping back from the cobalts of her S/S show, Rosella Jardini created a beautiful and sophisticated palette of navy blues and striking red. Organza, silks, and wool were aplenty, with large red floral prints becoming a prime focus.
Houndstooth was somewhat of a precursor to McQueen’s Paris show a week later; appearing on both wide leg trousers and tea dresses.
Our favourite look was the red cap-sleeved dress that held tight at the waist and fell into cascades of luxurious, voluminous ruffles that ended just below the knee. This combined with the luxe biker jacket that, on closer inspection, was embellished with safety pins made us go all weak at the knees. We do like!
