Moschino’s new backpacks are big enough to get inside

Absolute units tbh

From Jacquemus’s tiny Le Sac Chiquito, Lizzo’s miniscule Valentino purse, and Chanel’s Borrower-sized Boy bag, to Proenza Schouler’s XXL totes and Matty Bovan’s blown-up bumbags, over the course of the last few seasons, fashion has been struggling to decide whether big of little bag energy is so hot right now. 

Seemingly falling into the former camp is Jeremy Scott, who isn’t really one for dialling it down when it comes to his collections (just take that time he turned a TV dinner into a floor-sweeping cape, for example). Debuting his latest collection for Moschino last night in New York, the American designer took over a subway train inside the New York Transit Museum, where accessories went super-sized. 

As part of a show inspired by the train he used to ride while studying at fashion school, denim corsets were paired with tight, 90s-inspired denim jeans and baggy tracksuits were worn with chunky dad-style sneakers, with Scott even offering up his own take on the classic Chanel tweed. Finishing looks off were massive lighters styled as clutch bags, giant safety pins which held ball gowns together, and a mammoth gold-linked watch reimagined as a shawl.   

Elsewhere, it looked like Scott could have been looking to @itsmaysmemes for inspiration, with a series of mega-XXL pieces that dwarfed the models (who included Dazed 100ers Adesuwa Aighewi and Alton Mason). The novelty didn’t stop there, though: guests including Kim Petras and Amanda Lepore were seen sitting front row, carrying their oversized Metro card invitations.
