MFW S/S13: Moschino

By  September 24, 2012

Ever capital has had its decade. If New York took like a fish to nostalgic 90′s minimalist water for Spring Summer 2013, then the fashion houses of Milan have reverted back even farther, to the glory days of the swinging Italian sixties. Rossella Jardini for Moschino was no exception. It was the sixties at their chicest, beginning with mini after ultra mini was scoured in black and white graphic lines brought up to contemporary speed by rock and roll Swarovski encrusted sandal booties. Complete with beehives, white gloves and tongue-in-Moschino-cheek conical white helmets, the decade-centric message was less literal and more playful.

There were cute little orange and white striped mini skirt suit ensembles, with white rounded pockets and Jackie O shades to match, little cocktail dresses in sherbet shades and contrast piping shimmered with round paillettes. Lindsey Wixson pouted beneath her bouffant in a shiny shingled swing dress whilst Cara Delevigne worked an ultra-short high-necked white playsuit. Pops of colour worked their way into the collection, cherry red and cobalt blue, mixed and matched against contrasting primary yellow and accented with pockets or signature MOSCHINO letter belts and prints remained limited to a one or two cameos of polka dotted florals. Crochet coat dresses adorned with ruffles and white eyelet all-in-ones and maxi dresses that closed the show with a crisp lightness rather than delving into a dressier realm for evening.
