Milan Fashion Week SS16: Moschino
Power of pop
The set: It was no surprise that the SS16 show set would be a construction site runway. The yellow safety helmet sent to us along with our invitation clued us in. From road and warning signs to caution tapes, the set-up also included two automatic car washes that started up halfway through the show, releasing bubbles as the brushes began to rotate.
The clothes: Think of everything you would see at a construction site: Jeremy Scott sent it down the runway. Neon colours with safety reflectors ensembles, caution tape dresses and a traffic cone bag (or hat) in signature Moschino silhouettes were just some of the fun low-high ensembles.
Something you might have missed: Slogans such as 'Dangerous couture ahead', 'Clothed for repairs' and 'Shop' were emblazoned on the front and back of selected looks.
Spotted: A dancing feather duster that reminded us of Big Bird, the Powerpuff Girls in the form of cutesy shoulder bags and on prints, and a lighted car wash sign board slung over a model's shoulder. Subtletly is not his strong suit, but Jeremy Scott's obsession with pop culture remains delightfully entertaining.
I spy: Anna Cleveland, daughter of Pat Cleveland — a catwalk enigma and muse to Salvador Dali — was seen dancing and twirling down the runway.
