Moschino Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Show

Two weeks ago in New York at the Jeremy Scott show, this critic called the designer’s signature collection a riff on “Malibu Barbie meets hippy chick.” Now that Scott has unveiled his sophomore collection for Moschino, that opinion was arguably a premonition of what the designer had in store for the fashion world in Milan.

Scott went no holds barred for Barbie.

Front row guest were greeted with limited edition Barbie dolls. They were dressed in a pink Moschino zip-front skirt and matching belly bearing cropped perfecto jackets (even Barbie’s purse was a mini replica of the brand’s already iconic biker jacket bag). Those seated further back were treated to this season’s Moschino iphone cover: A replica of a pink Barbie mirror- sturdy handle and all. The cover would have come in handy earlier – as a fashion weapon- when seated guest were trying to actually get into the show venue that was mobbed by the brand’s legions of new fans.
