Back once again for the renegade master! A return to the Moschino we’ve known and loved, this collection was based on “London street”, no literally, the boys were decked in red brick wall prints…

Rossella Jardini took us on an evolutionary journey through menswear, not in particular chronological order mind, starting with garish prints, brick trousers with grey blazers/ grey trousers with brick blazers, cheeky chappy bowler hats and umbrellas with electric guitar ends (which might be dangerous if it didn’t look so cool). At this point, delighted as we were with the status quo, the soundtrack changed tempo and the clothes followed suit with suits. The lyrics started “I’ll be nice to your mother although she always gets up my nose, but I love you very much so I’ll smile and acquiesce when she asks me to caress her scabby cat”, signalling that our man had fallen in love and started to dress a bit proper in three-piece suits with handkerchiefs tucked neatly into pockets. As the music changed again to ‘Burning down the house’, flashes of louder than life fluoro green and pink appeared under tie dye coats and on trousers and blazers. With a spirit of irreverence throughout, Moschino went back to its basics, back to its best.
