If menswear has a fashion brand that personifies the style peacock, perhaps no label is more accurately matched than Moschino. Under the creative direction of designer Jeremy Scott, the outlandish fashions have been dialed up, but with a specific point of view. Each season, Scott revisits men’s classics, reinterpreting them with a flashy, surface intense theme. Tackling his spring-summer 2016 collection for Moschino, Scott was inspired by the work of artists Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore. Proceeding with the duo’s blessings, the collection borrows a sampling of graphics from their archive.
Embracing pops of color that capture the various hues of the rainbow, the Moschino man gets a cartoonish makeover for spring. Suits are turned out in neon colors and feature graphic touches that liken them to illustrations. The same idea is carried out with combat boots, denim jeans, cardigans, leather biker jackets and parkas. The list goes on as Scott introduces the Moschino man to life in a truly creative world. Pushing the lines of gender, a hero piece of the collection is Scott’s skirt which resembles a plaid shirt tied around the waist. The detail was a welcomed addition as models took the catwalk with colorful streaked hair and bright sunglasses that brought to mind the 1980s.
