The Moschino Fall 2020 show was held in Milan on Thursday night, but designer Jeremy Scott seems to have thought of Paris. After announcing earlier this year that he would move his namesake fashion show from New York Fashion Week in February to the City of Lights in July, it is not surprising that a certain French touch took his place on the runway.
Starting with the invitations decorated with cakes with a decadent design, followed by a reflected catwalk, the theme took flight when the show began. There she was in every look, in every hairstyle: Marie Antoinette.
Soaring hair in shades ranging from platinum and pastel pink to brown, the hustle and bustle print, golden denim and rich velvet jacquard: if the French queen crossed the doors of Versailles today, surely this is what would wear These looks, of course, mixed with the ease of Moschino's motorcycle jacket and matching accessories.
However, what led the cake were the real "cake" dresses. There was a pink and white number off the shoulder that combined with the invitation, a white tiered dress with orange flowers, perfect for a summer wedding in the French countryside and the closest show: a pristinely white wedding dress that looked sufficiently Good to eat. The bags matched the motif, shaped like cakes, croissants and a very realistic baguette.
He was cheeky and elegant, and those on board with Scott's concept "let them eat cake" served their desserts.
