There were fun, feminine looks at Moschino, tailored leathers at Bally and haute bohemian styles at Trussardi, while Borbonese was all about gold.
Moschino and Cheap & Chic: If laughter is the best medicine, then the house of Moschino has to be the best clinic in town. Never short of a joke, this company has always been a purveyor of fun fashion, infused with just the right amount of kitsch. In the past, the house has sent out everything from Spanish senoritas in newspaper flamenco dresses to the Wizard of Oz and pirate gear. But for spring, the joke was in the unexpected. There were no giant hats, no elf shoes, no camp. Instead, the presentation demonstrated the house’s unique — strange and twisted — sense of humor. The show opened with the models walking backward and closed with a finale of girls falling on top of each other, domino-style. Weird, yes — but that’s showbiz chez Moschino.
