For starters I have to say that I’m not a fan of Moschino and that I don’t like (at all) Jeremy Scott’s work. Is SO not my stuff, sorry not sorry.
Anyway, the spring 2016 menswear collection is CLEARLY inspired by the 18th century macaroni: ruffs, brocades, contrasting colours, textures, beauty marks and roll above the ears.
I have to say that this collection is far from the elegance and beauty from the
Yohji Yamamoto one (I should make a post for that collection too!), but as the macaroni, this Moschino one is fun and colourful, it doesn’t take itself very seriously (very Moschino attitude) and is more for a show than for the streets.
