MFW: Moschino

By: Quinn Bell

Although it was rife with traditional Scottish tartans, creative director Rosella Jardini cited the late Anne Bonfoey Taylor, an American athlete, designer and socialite with a very distinct and influential personal style, as the muse for Moschino’s Fall 2013 collection. The exquisitely tailored jackets and trousers, as well as the occasional embroidered riding helmet, gave the collection an equestrian aesthetic.

Three piece suits, mini kilts, cropped riding jackets and crisp white shirts were key looks seen throughout the show. Although tartans were the focus of the collection, 3D floral jacquards and grey and white pinstripe fabrics were used as well. Details included embroidered roses, hearts, ‘Ms’ and crests in gold thread, voluminous peplums on trousers and dresses as well as ruffles on collars. Models strode down the runway in sky-high hiking-boot-esque heels paired with socks; each wearing a pair of oversized coat of arms shaped gold earrings. The show came to a close with the glorious sound of bagpipe music and was a prime example of Italian luxury at its best.
