The Moschino Fall 2020 show was held in Milan on Thursday night — yet designer Jeremy Scott appears to have had Paris at the forefront of his thoughts. In the wake of declaring not long ago that he was moving his namesake appear from February’s New York Fashion Week to the City of Lights in July, it’s no big surprise that a specific French flair took its place on the runway.
Starting with the debauchedly designed cake-enhanced welcomes, followed by a reflected catwalk, the theme took flight as the show got underway. There she was in each look, in each updo: Marie Antoinette.
Sky-high hair in conceals differing from platinum and pastel pink to chestnut, toile-print clamors, overlaid denim, and rich velvet jacquard: If the French sovereign were to step through the entryways of Versailles today, most likely this is the thing that she’d be wearing. These looks were mixed among Moschino’s mark moto-coat ease and coordinating extras.
What took the cake, however, were the genuine “cake” dresses. There was a pink-and-white off-the-shoulder number that coordinated the welcome, a white layered gown with orange blossoms ideal for a mid-year wedding in the French open country and the shows nearer: a flawlessly white marriage dress that looked adequate to eat. The sacks coordinated the theme, molded like cakes, croissants, and an extremely reasonable loaf.
It was nervy and chic, and those energetic about Scott’s “let them eat cake” idea was served their fair pastries.
