Back to the sixties with Moschino in Milan
MILAN, Sept 22 — The sixties were back with a bang at the latest Moschino collection at Milan Fashion Week yesterday in a show starring girls with beehive hairstyles, psychedelic dresses and flared trousers.
The catwalk kicked off with a series of striped outfits — black horizontal stripes down white mini-skirts, the front of trouser legs or on short jackets — all worn with black or white horse-riding-style helmets.
But it was flower power that reigned with the stripes giving way to dresses and close-cut suits in yellows, blues and reds adorned with flowers — a theme of the Spring/Summer 2013 collections already picked up by Prada and Gucci.
Dresses and short jumpsuits were worn high at the neck, with panels cut out at the side to show skin, while mustard yellow and baby pink suits and short jumpsuits were worn with short white gloves and large hooped earrings.
As the song “Let’s have a good time” belted out over the soundtrack, the collection took a racy turn with black-netting dresses worn over white underwear.
Designer Rosella Jardini’s woman was on the whole sporty and care-free in tennis-style skirts and light tunics with tiny pockets on the front — though also ready for disco dancing in short silver dresses jazzed up with gemstones.
The third day of fashion week continues with Etro and Versace, followed by a plethora of parties in the evening, including a Moschino cocktail and a soiree starring US singer Beth Ditto to show off Versace’s second line Versus. — AFP/Relaxnews
