MFW S/S 2012 – Moschino

Moschino SS12
While the fan-shaped invitation to the Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Moschino hinted at a flamenco feel, the actual garments were executed with vast improvements to my expectations (a good thing!). Instead of tiered, overdone ‘costumes‘, Moschino (via the styling of Anna Dello Russo) pulled out gold bell-embelllished toreador jackets, richly embroidered mini dresses, ruffles and petticoats to compliment beautiful lace work, high-waisted trousers, and even gorgeous monteras (the traditional hat worn by a Matador).

It was a theme translated with indisputable expertise, as many of the items already have me compiling my “Moschino Fund“; a super-colourful flower-packed black leather jacket covered emblazoned with the slogan ‘Make Up Not War‘, in particular. Muy bien.
