Following hot on the heels of the new-season Prada show, at which Miuccia channelled some heavy Wednesday Addams vibes for AW19, comes Jeremy Scott’s latest Moschino presentation, which was, as they say, a production. Here’s everything you need to know.
It goes without saying that Jeremy Scott goes all out when it comes to his shows, but this one was particularly OTT. The set looked a lot like that of trashy 90s TV game show The Price Is Right, with the runway lined with flashing lights and all the grand prizes: including a washing machine and dryer set, a red sports car, a uber-90s bedroom set, a pool table, and a home gym on display.
The label’s theme for AW19 is apparently more, more, MORE, with gold leather two-piece suits, full-length sparkling dresses with waist-length splits, and more than a few gowns with some serious cut-out detailing all featuring heavily. There was also a number of looks printed with dollar bills and gambling paraphernalia, all studded with plastic rhinestones: apparently, the Moschino girl has a developed a bit of a gambling habit since the last show.
THE ACCESSORIES WERE MEGA-KITSCH
Scott had really cranked things up to 11 at this collection, and no more so than when it came to the accessories. On the line-up were sky-high strappy sandals (covered in glitter, obviously), and long metallic leather gloves, as well as bags that looked like rolled-up dollar bills and champagne bottles. Perhaps the wildest accessory of all, though, was a huge cape printed with a TV dinner of microwavable frozen vegetables and butter, as well as a couple of desserts: ideal for when you want to let them know you’re not just a snack, you’re the whole damn meal.
