The latest collection of the Italian luxury brand reflect references to the filmic worlds of the dystopian, yet super-saturated A Clockwork Orange, Bladerunner, and sixties-era sci-fi cinema
Moschino recently launched their newest collection. Their prefall womenswear and fall menswear 2022 collections are references to the filmic worlds of the dystopian, yet super saturated A Clockwork Orange, Bladerunner, and sixties-era sci-fi cinema.
The presentation opens with a color-blocked cotillion of sorts, repurposing militaristic regalia with pomp, panache, and details such a double-breasted dresses and jackets. Chevrons and stripes bubble to the surface, like pinstripes on vintage airline liveries, over bustier tops and square-shouldered frocks. The track then jumps into a more painterly whorl, where a 60’s and 70’s-esque fantasia comes to reinterpreted life with car coats, jodhpurs and extended-lapel French coats.
The illustory is underscored and made real: It’s a fantastical homage to the way-back-when placed in the actuality of the now, and shellacked in love. It is a trip down memory lane, remastered for the present.
