Moschino Fall 2011


Ah Milan, where the urban Italian city is full of success, culture, and this week, the best fashions.  The Moschino yesterday sure brought military fashion to Fall 2011, yet the collection still managed to keep a touch of femininity. Rossella Jardini built her Fall collection on a straightforward idea: the masculine/feminine twist.

With that said, there were tailcoats and tuxedos and riding jackets, all faultlessly tailored, but with an unexpected detail or two. Precious touches actually—gold teddy bears and black velvet bows decorating a collar, revers in a rose print, a cummerbund in hot pink—tweaked standard notions of the male uniform. The navy man’s standard-issue khaki pants, for example, were re-inspired with a billowy gold lamé palazzo pants. As for accessories—captain’s hats and the house’s signature gold hoop earrings—extended the metaphor.

But… let’s not forget the hat heard round the world, mainly over the twitterverse, Coco Rocha’s stuffed chicken hat.  Now only Coco Rocha wearing Moschino could pull something like that off.
