Pictures of Jeremy Scott’s first collection for Moschino appeared on Racked this morning and I’m thrilled to see that they’re every bit as logo-tastic and kitsch as I hoped they might be.
Over Christmas I found some amazing Moschino heels in a vintage shop in Sheffield – they were 80s pointy kitten heels, with the iconic Moschino gold letters placed around the ankle strap. Imagine! They were spectacular (and cheap), but there’s no way I’ll ever have the legs to pull off an ankle strap on a kitten heel so I just admired them for a while then left them for some lucky-legged student to pick up.
Anyway – just when you thought the Moschino logo letters couldn’t snake their way around anything else, here we get a rucksack, a snapback cap and a trompe l’oeil necklace on a sweater. Shout out too for that handbag made out of a mini leather jacket – better pic here on the Beckerman blog.
I’ve just highlighted my favourite bits but the collection has more variety than you might suspect. There are oversized varsity jackets in the form of dresses, tricksy lace slips and some chintzy floral dress coats which are almost a bit Luella, to my mind.
God bless Jeremy and Moschino for constantly flying the flag for fun fashion. See the lot here!
