Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones But Moschino Excites Me!

Na na na, come on, come on, come on, na na-na na come on. While Rihanna’s 2010 single “S&M” wasn’t officially on the soundtrack at the Moschino Fall 2018 Menswear and Pre-Fall 2018 womenswear show, it should have been. I was able to catch the live stream of this show and from the moment the third model came down the runway to even now as I write this review I have been singing the hook of this song over and over again. Jeremy Scott’s collections for Moschino just keep getting better and better. Most of the show’s during Milan Men’s Fashion Week feature very wearable wardrobes and styling that wouldn’t stray too far from how many would wear it in reality, but we can always count on Jeremy to make a splash and give us a really fun show. Honestly on paper this show just shouldn’t have worked. It was a mix of classic femme fatale, S&M bondage, military, 40’s, and 90’s.Honestly most of this collection won’t go into production. The pieces are just too out there, especially on the menswear side. Moschino is one of the few brands that decide to concurrently show their fall menswear and their pre-fall womenswear. It always makes for a great show. To see how the Moschino man and woman are interconnected. It was hard to figure who was the dominant and who was the submissive in this collection. The clothes for each were equally as strong. Overall I really want to see how some of these pieces, like the olive green men’s double breasted suit with suspender-like embellished cold shoulder details, would work in real life. I would desperately like to think that I could pull something like that off, but deep down I know that I could not.  While I would love to see some of the menswear pieces on red carpets I really don’t think that there are many men brave enough to wear it. I think some music stars like Adam Levine, Jared Leto, Future, G-Eazy, A$AP Rocky, and Miguel might give some of these items a try for events like the Grammy’s or as stage costumes, but that is about it. On the other hand there are all kinds of women who I can picture wearing the Pre-Fall 2018 collection though. In fact we have already seen Abbie Cornish wearing the long sleeve sequined black gown (Center, Above) for the Golden Globe Awards. Some of the other names that came to mind include Madonna, Ashley Benson, Alessandra Ambrosio, Joan Smalls, Hailee Steinfeld, Stella Maxwell, Chrissy Teigan, Hailey Baldwin, Taraji P. Henson, Bella Hadid, Halsey, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Fergie, Kristen Stewart, Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Solange Knowles, Lorde, Lupita Nyong’o, Amber Heard, Kylie Minogue, Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, Kerry Washington, Nicole Scherzinger, Jessie J, Emma Stone, Zendaya, Fan Bingbing, Kelly Rowland, Jessica Chastain, and Lady Gaga. The range in this collection is amazing. There are gowns that I can picture seen on Oscar night for parties, some for street style, music awards, Met Gala, and worn for other fabulous parties in general.
