Moschino Fall/Winter 2014 Review
I can always count on the Moschino show to make me smile. Once again, the brand has refused to take fashion too seriously (why should anyone? its for us to enjoy!) and whisked models down the runway in wonderfully garish and satirical attire. This year, Moschino designer Jeremy Scott drew inspiration from pop culture, plastering McDonald’s famous logo and Spongebob’s recognizable face all over the clothes. A lot of reviews claim the collection was tacky, but I don’t care. I like it; I think it was unexpected and sincere.
I love this look. Although the model is sporting a McDonald’s worker’s uniform, wearing bulbous yellow earrings, and even a visor (gasp), she looks chic and coordinated. I like the obnoxious purse, too; it mimics the way advertisers blatantly broadcast their products. I think this look also draws attention to the people we overlook. Like it’s funny how nobody thinks twice about the girl at McDonalds who passes hamburgers out the scratched, drive-thru window until a poised, elegant model struts down a runway wearing the same uniform. I hereby dedicate this post to you McDonalds hamburger-hander-outer-girl.
In love with this polka-dotted coat. I mean come on. It is like a leopard coat but ironic. And the shoes are just ridiculous. But in a most wonderful sense you understand.
Also in this year’s collection were several dresses with recognizable food labels posted everywhere. My personal favorite is this Hershey’s chocolate one just because it reminds me of the unconventional Project Runway challenge (Season 4 Episode 6. Don’t worry, I am well aware that my PR obsession is horrifying) where the designers went to the Hershey’s store in Times Square and had to make a dress out of the materials there. But in all seriousness I also really like this dress because of the structured draping. Like how is it managing to stay in that twisted position? How is it not un-twisting? …..????
My question is how can a dress made of fabric obnoxiously advertising Cheezy Bits look so haute-couture. How. I demand an answer.
Behold. My favorite piece of the collection. A wedding dress tattooed with Nutrition Facts. The message I found here is both tragic and inspiring (ish?). Just that we need to remember calories are mere units of energy and that the number we consume daily is something society should place so much importance on. Such lovely social commentary. And so unexpected at a fashion show of all places. Also on another note, I would quite honestly consider wearing this dress at my wedding (hint hint Moschino designer Jeremy Scott hint hint).
