Daring Designer Pushes the Envelope with Teasing Pinups for Moschino

Watch it Live

In late 2013, designer Jeremy Scott took the role as creative director at Moschino and has since revolutionized the Italian fashion house. Scott, who is known for his idiosyncratic blends of playful caricature and pop culture inspired designs, has reimagined logos for brands such as McDonaldsBarbie and Looney Tunes in past collections (sending models down the runway as chic McDonald’s employees was one unforgettable and controversial move).

In his most recent show at Milan Fashion Week in February, Scott made a bold statement with a recycle-themed lineup. He opened his new collection with “cardboard couture” — inspired camel colored tailored suits and coats embodying packaging materials.

Then, came peculiar printed ensembles meant to illustrate previously torn up Moschino magazine editorials from magazines like Vogue.

In the final act, Scott kicked it up a notch with ball gowns and cocktail dresses that were recreated from household items such as shower curtains, bubble wrap, trash bags and rugs.

This season, Scott is returning to Los Angeles and has since posted a teaser image to the Moschino Instagram account of what this seasons theme could be. The invite features a pinup posed woman dressed in an animal print crop top and a matching short skirt, with closed toed heels.

Could Scott be going for a 1920s’ Vargas theme with a twist? Or could he be making a political statement as many designers have done in Los Angeles in the past?
