From Milan: Moschino pops it with bold summer look
| Published: September 21, 2012 | Modified: September 21, 2012 at 8:01 am
MILAN (AP) — Moschino's collection for next summer had all the basics of 1960s pop art: clear lines, strong colors and bold graphic elements.
Moschino creative director Rossella Jardini worked with a very simple fashion grammar in the womenswear collection previewed Friday during Milan Fashion Week.
White suits and dresses were trimmed in black with black buttons, while black suits were accented in white. The outfits were paired with black or white riding hats cinched around the chin, big earrings and white gloves.
Moschino then evolved into color, a runway progression that mimicked the technological advance from black-and-white to color television in the 1960s. The colors were mostly bright — orange, pink, blue and yellow, — and included bold florals. Repeating motifs included hearts and diamonds of playing cards and simple flowers.
Jardini often trimmed the clothes, giving them a clear graphic effect, as if to say: Here are the pockets, this is the waist, there's the neckline and the hem. And she made good use of stripes.
Styles ranged from jackets and cigarette pants to cropped tops and rompers. Cutout panels on the sides of mini-dresses and jumpsuits gave a sexy feel.
The vibe was decidedly mod, with long hair teased for volume and pulled back like a go-go dance. Bags ranged from small clutches and shoppers, while jewelry featured big bracelets and earrings. High-heeled sandals, often with mirror appliques, finished the look.
The collection contained elements seen elsewhere on Milan runways: a feminine silhouette that ranges from mini to maxi, sheer materials and romantic eyelet fabric.
