For autumn, Moschino takes on excessive consumption, vanity, big business and death in new, unexpected ways.
On our minds is Milan Fashion Week, which saw more brands tune in to the debate around the pace of the fashion system. One of the strongest collections touching upon the topic was that from Moschino, which creative director Jeremy Scott took on excessive consumption, vanity, big business and death in new, unexpected ways. The collection saw burnt garments with smoke coming out of them and accessories made to look like packets of cigarettes with the text “Fashion Kills” (possibly symbolising the addictive nature of shopping) – all supposedly referencing 15th-century Dominican monks who burnt ‘vanity items’ including clothes in Renaissance Florence (and an early take on opposing conspicuous consumption). See the full looks from the show here.
