Moschino S/S 2011: Milan Fashion Week

So far, most of the major Milan shows have felt distinctly summery: airy silhouettes, breezy garment movement, floral patterns, and bright hues. That’s why the Moschino collection for this season was a bit of a surprise.  

The line’s usual quirky touches, such as stripes, polka dots, cowboy hats, and message tees, were all there. However, Moschino’s Spring 2011 collection felt very autumn – even in the looks featuring patterns or flower details.
An abundance of black, blue, and deep red prints made their way down the runway. The silhouettes ranged from fitted, high-waisted pants and boxy jackets (like the monochromatic one with fabric looping through holes around the rim), to patterned peasant dresses and cowboy-inspired bustier dresses.
Not everyone found everything in the line-up flattering. But, Moschino is about having fun with fashion. Sometimes, a girl just wants to wear mustard-colored pants with a Mickey Mouse polka top and a cowboy hat.
