Moschino Men’s SS19 and Women’s Resort 19 Runway Report

Jeremy Scott recreated a circus tent for Moschino‘s combined men’s Spring/Summer 19 and women’s Resort 19 show, complete with several circus props in the middle, an area which the models entered to perform simple circus acts, after completing their circuit around the runway. Jeremy Scott himself appeared as the ringmaster, welcoming everyone to the Moschino Circus that will bring “thrills and chills … [and] death-defying acts… beading and embroidery”.

Act One kicked off after Scott’s introductory welcome message, and from the looks that came down the runway after that, it became obvious that Scott was particularly inspired by circus clowns. From huge polka dots, lamé, multicoloured graphic stripes, umbrellas, oversized bow ties and sunglasses, to wellington boots, hoop skirts, ruffled flares, headgear, and flower motifs reminiscent of the water-squirting flowers that clowns always carry around, the clownish theme was evident. There were also feathered details, that, whether in the form of coats, or shoulder details, were also reminiscent of stringy colourful clown wigs.

Clowns aside, sequinned bralets seemed to hint at the trapeze artists’ costumes, while top hats paired with tuxedo suits with sequinned details and dresses with three-dimensional white doves were suggestive of circus magician acts, oh, and not forgetting the circus tent-like capes.

Circus “animals”, too, were represented in the collection by one-shouldered zebra dresses and pantsuits, along with two-piece leopard and cheetah suits, for both men and women — all of which, were mostly covered in sequins.

Act one closed with a real-life circus performer who did an aerial hoop routine to usher in the Second Act, which was considerably made up of lesser pieces than we’re used to seeing at Moschino runway shows. Comprised strictly of evening looks, here we see more “wearable” pieces, accented with feathered headdresses that gave off the Vegas showgirl kinda vibe, that we also sometimes witness in circuses.

Kudos to Scott for being the über-ringmaster, successfully commanding his troupe of models in recreating a truly fun-tastical spectacle. There were certainly no freaks here, only a colourful collection of exaggerated proportions.
