So, Moschino just had their first catwalk show in New York, and the creative director of the brand; Jeremy Scott explored every stylistic nuance. From uptown chic down to lower east side grunge, the CD of Moschino created fashion for all eventualities in the city of New York. Here are 3 things you should know about the Moschino pre-fall 2020 show.
Giant Moschino metro passes were sent out as an invitation
The Moschino pre-fall fashion show kicked off in Brooklyn’s Transit Museum, and guests were invited with giant Moschino metro passes! “Fashion has to be fun, otherwise it is silly,” Jeremy said to vogue.
The Collection was heavily influenced by New York City
In the past, Moschino collections have seen the creative director play on the culture of his Los Angeles home, but for the pre-fall 2020 collection, we got to see the place that shaped his signature high-octane glamour. When explaining the attitude of the collection derived from the city, Jeremy said; “In LA, people use their cars [as status symbols], but in New York, it’s just you, it’s like, ‘This is what I am, this is how much money I make.’”
Moschino pre-fall 2020 show experienced the rebirth of 1990s Harlem street style
The 1990s in Harlem was known for its legendary hip-hop fashion, and Jeremy flipped this with vibrant windbreakers, ginormous, cocoon-like puffer jackets, loud shell suits, boombox briefcase-cum-bags and oversized, jaunty caps. And, just in case hats aren’t your thing, the Creative Director of Moschino realised the headwear in handbag form.
The show was more, more and more, we can see why the designer brand has amassed a huge cult following. No doubt, fans will be spotted in meme-worthy backpacks and Bic-lighter evening bags. We can’t wait!
More from the show!
From Madison Avenue tweed and Financial District flannels to Williamsburg denim, it felt like no corner was left untouched in Scott’s referential romp around NYC. The maximalist mixing of tropes was emblematic of the designer’s personal style renaissance when he moved there from Kansas City, and was encouraged to embrace his style for the first time: “I put on a different fashion show each day,” he recalls. “I was constantly expressing myself on me, I didn’t have [Moschino] as an outlet.”
