You never let us down Jeremy Scott, you never let us down…
With hard-hat helmet invites and a reputation for always blowing our minds, the Moschino SS16 show was bound to be a goodun, and Jeremy Scott has certainly done it again.
This season was definitely a mixed bag of trends, pop culture references and motorway sign nuances, so we’re giving you a cheat sheet of everything you need to see from the show:
While it may not be a ‘look’, the set was definitely a talking point and Instagram worthy too. The yellow hard-hat helmet invites were a definite clue to the set which was a sign posted catwalk, which warned of ‘Dangerous Couture Ahead’ and ‘Clothed for Repairs’.
If all that wasn’t enough, half way through the show it transpired that the whole thing turned into a fully functional car wash. What more could you want when you’re in Milan attending a fashion show, we ask?
Whitney Houston is back in the building, people. For one night only, the late Whitney made a comeback. Well, the legendary singer’s barnett from the The Preacher’s Wife era did at any rate, and it looked fantastic.
Neon everythaaang, people. The humble high vis jacket which is usually the look de jour of worker-types and the Transport Police, has been transformed by good ol’ Jeremy into smart skirt suits worn with pussybow blouses for women everywhere. If you don’t think you can wear the whole outfit, then you can invest in one of the brand’s traffic cone handbags (which can double up as an actual traffic cone if you’re ever in the need of one).
Never one to stray that far from a pun, trench coats were emblazoned with the words ‘Caution: Open Trench’ on the back and t-shirt dresses with ‘Slippery When Wet’ while one model carried a very phallic looking ‘One Way’ signed clutch bag which she used to err…well, see for yourself.
The dream coat
Who knew Sesame Street’s Big Bird was an out and out fashion icon? Well, we certainly didn’t, but Jeremy obviously did. While it may not be the most wearable of outfits (god forbid there be any rain), the Big Bird feather coat is just about our dream.
If you’re a Disney Princess inside, this collection is for you…
Having already designed collections for all the fans of the Looney Tunes, Barbie and Spongebob Squarepants, it was only a matter of time before Jeremy targeted all the girls who feel like Disney princesses inside. With puffed out skirts and satin bodices these dresses were fit for Cinderella, Bella and of course, Sleeping Beauty. Will someone invite us to a ball now, please?!
Power Puff Girls
If you saw yourself more as a Nickolodeon kid, then no fear, the Power Puff Girls also made an appearance on handbags, swimsuits and the occasional dress too. Inbetween all the cultural references, there were flapper-ish dresses which mimicked the movement of the car-wash set and 50’s style floral dresses and outfits worthy of Olivia Newton-John in Grease.
The new phone case
Last seasons teddy bear is out, this season it’s all about the Windex people. Used for cleaning windows (or for curing any ailment if you’re like Gus from My Big Fat Greek Wedding), a Windex shaped phone case will be the de jour this season. If you miss the boat on buying the already sold out cover, we suggest just carrying a bottle of the real thing to fit in.
P.S. You can shop the collection now…
If you’re slightly in love with the collection and need, need, need it now then you can shop the SS16 capsule collection on Stylebop.com from Sunday. The dream? We think so.
