The Moschino runway at the Milan Fashion Week transported audiences to the height of the flower power era with a very colorful 1960s inspired collection. Created by designer Rosella Jardini, the latest Moschino showing was infused with bright colors and floral prints that were immediately reminiscent of the distinct patterns and prints in vogue more than half a century ago. Vivid hues, bright whites and stark blacks were used for striped patterns in the collection that was dominated by bold prints.
The line had a lot of A-line shift dresses though the light-hearted show also showcased a lot of psychedelic and monochrome dresses. Trousers, though fewer in number, also made up a respectable percentage of the Moschino collection and were shown in both flared as well as cropped silhouettes.
Staying true to the fashion of the 1960s, the outfits in the new collection were accessorized with white sunglasses, heavily lined smokey eyes and large over the top hooped earrings. Beehive hairdos and horse-riding-style black and white helmets were also a part of the retro inspired collection.
It remains to be seen whether the new Moschino collection is reflective of a shift in fashion trends for the upcoming season though a lot of other brands have shown retro-inspired pieces in bits and pieces in their 2013 lines. The collection came as a breath of fresh air after a string of ultra modern lines presented by some of the world’s leading brands at New York and London.
