A Moschino show is a not-to-be-missed event. You never know what creative director Jeremy Scott is going to come up with. In the past, he has been inspired by everything from Looney Tunes to McDonald’s. He even sent models down the runway looking like real-life Barbies. For Moschino’s Spring/Summer 2017 show at Milan Fashion Week, Jeremy took inspiration from another type of doll. The latest Moschino show brought back paper dolls.
Remember how much fun paper dolls were? You could cut your different outfits out then put them on your doll simply by folding the white tabs of paper over around her little paper “body.” Moschino took inspiration from the concept. Models walks the runway in various looks complete with the aforementioned white tabs. Even the accessories got the white tab treatment.
The collection also played with two-dimension and three-dimension. Like with your doll clothes, ruffles and pleats were drawn (or printed) on as opposed to actually being constructed out of fabric.
Thankfully, Moschino didn’t take too literal of an approach. The clothes are still made for three-dimensional human bodies in mind so they have backs. We’re all for rocking a paper doll-inspired look, but wearing something without a back would be a step too far.
