Jeremy Scott’s political non-political collection for Moschino Spring 2015

Continuing from where he left off, the junk food theme for Autumn 2014, Jeremy Scott did a “fun” collection for Moschino Spring 2015 inspired by Barbie. People seemed to enjoy it. After the show Leigh Lezark said that everything was so much fun. “And you gotta have fun with fashion!”.

Now, we could problematize Barbie. We could talk about her cultural influence. We could talk about the body-image that comes with Barbie. But everyone seemed to have so much fun. “She brings joy! People want to dissect her and her cultural meanings. It’s a doll! It’s meant to be fun!”, Scott said backstage. Well then…

Fun or not, it doesn’t change the fact that people are going to buy it and the fact that this would appeal to a younger demographic, like a 12 year old would love this, it’s quite frightening. What is the connection between Barbie and Moschino? Moschino has always been political and this collection is meant to be fun. The collection was a political camp statement wrapped in pink and glitter, in a time where feminism and equality is a boiling hot topic. Is he having fun or is this his vision of the woman next spring? According to Anna Dello Russo for Italian girls “[...] Barbie means this dream of American girls, richness, wealthiness and blondness. A power girl.”

Why not make a political statement and make a collection like this and say “I’m not going to sell it at all, i just wanna show this image, criticize it and that’s all.” On one hand, it’s a fun collection. We laugh when Charlotte Free comes skating to the edge of the runway. We see the doll most of us played with come alive. And on other hand a thought comes to mind if he’s mocking the girls he’s trying to portrait, he’s betraying the ones who’s actually going to buy it.

MFW Spring 2015: Dolce & Gabbana Says ‘Olé’

It’s not very surprising that Stefano Gabbana och Domenico Dolce looked towards Spain for the Spring 2015 collection. Even though Sicily has been their chamber of inspiration for previous seasons Spain is not so far away giving a new twist to the passionate Dolce & Gabbana woman, without losing the brand’s core.

The matadors and flamenco influence was shown through heavily embroidered boleros, high waisted shorts, shawls with fringes and the color palette consisting of black, red and white. Somewhere in between the bullfighters and dancers a glimpse of a confident and strong widow was shown; corsets and thigh highs, a black revealing lace dress and a veil. Along with options for a relatively younger crowd; heavily rhinestoned jeans and silk camisoles with sheer parts.

The typical bullfighting and flamenco music made the theme of the collection even more loud and clear. The show was theatrical and the collection powerful, but it was never too much. Even if there were spectacular pieces it was all wearable. Dolce & Gabbana always hits the right notes.

MFW: Alberta Ferretti’s romantic Pocahontas

Alberta Ferretti’s new collection for Spring 2015 was all about the 70′s, in a more romantic hippie and Pocahontas kind of way. Sheer materials such as chiffon combined with denim gave the sugar sweet collection a bit of nowness. The brand is not about cutting edge innovation, it’s about making women feel pretty and Alberta Ferretti knows how make pretty happen with great Italian craftsmanship and handwork in her spring collection.
