NEW YORK (AP) – It was a soggy, grey day in Manhattan, but Moschino had the antidote: a burst of colour and whimsy filling a runway in midtown’s Bryant Park.
Jeremy Scott, the fertile mind behind the Italian luxury label, filled his New York Fashion Week collection with bright baby blues, pastel pinks and greens and purples, and brilliant yellows – fitting for a show inspired by children’s toys and cartoon animals.
Gigi Hadid, a longtime Scott collaborator, opened the show with a baby blue three-piece suit – miniskirt, bustier and jacket – adorned with a motif of pink elephants and other whimsical animals, with a chunky necklace around her neck bearing letters that spelled ‘MOSCHINO’.
The dozens of outfits to come hewed to the same concept – women in baby-themed dresses and suits, adorned with safety-pin earrings or teething rings, with whimsical matching handbags and gloves. There were glasses with heart-shaped lenses and slouchy belts that looked like giant little-girl charm bracelets. There was even a baby mobile, as headdress.
