Moschino pay homage to heritage for AW 10/11
In stark contrast to Burberry's sombre colour story, Moschino's fashion depiction of Autumn 2010 leading us perilously into 2011 is a vibrant affair, like two contrasting jigsaw puzzles wedged together on a whim, yet managing to pull the look off both elegantly and effortlessly.
The looks offer up a fusion of robust British fabrics and ,contrasted with flamboyant Italian imagery: A nylon parka emblazoned with Central Station, and a smoking jacket depicting a snow covered Solari Park, exemplify the most flamboyant of these milanese celebratory pieces.
The essential theme is key classics updated with a playful patriotism, but don't let that make you think only an Italian can wear this collection with pride.
The shapes are reminiscent of the late 50's 'Teddy Boys' and developing [before our very eyes] into the infamous mods.
The very best details include rolled up trousers, drawing the eye to mixed fabric brogues and patchwork high tops, innovative reworking of biker jackets and parkas, and the simplistic addition of zips to chunky knitwear and svelte sartorial pieces to create a look which is both retro and modern, but infinitely quirky and wearable.
2010/11 is shaping up to be a grand affair for menswear, thank you Moschino.
