MOSCHINO PRESENTS THE FALL/WINTER 2022 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

The graphic artistry of Victor Vasarely, Richard Lindner, and Allen Jones. The dystopian—yet super saturated— filmic worlds of A Clockwork Orange, Bladerunner, and sixties-era sci-fi cinema. The swinging mod rhythm of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. All, in some way, inform Jeremy Scott’s combined Pre-Fall 2022 womenswear and Fall 2022 menswear collections for Moschino: These references gel into a polychrome trip down memory lane, remastered for the present. The presentation opens with a color-blocked cotillion of sorts, repurposing militaristic regalia with pomp, panache, and details such as double-breasted dresses and jackets. Bowler hats—dyed lavender, tangerine and space-age blue—recall the toppers worn in Clockwork, the classic Kubrick masterpiece. Chevrons and stripes bubble to the surface, like pinstripes on vintage airline liveries, over bustier tops and square-shouldered frocks. These give way to a trompe l’oeil plot twist, replete with a babydoll sailor suit motif over a knit dress and a faux pussybow under an illusion collar. The track then jumps into a more painterly whorl, where a 60’s and 70’s-esque fantasia comes to reinterpreted life. Car coats, jodhpurs, and extended-lapel trench coats channel the free-wheeling, pop-bright chroma of the moment, while certain striped prints recall mid-to-late 20th century TV screens up close (remember staring at those big, convex lenses and watching the color warp?) The credits roll with a finale series of more optical opulence, mismatching and repeating a circular disc theme across a column dress, a shawl lapel tuxedo, and a belted coat-dress. All in all, the illustory is underscored and made real: It’s a fantastical homage to the way-back-when placed in the actuality of the now, and shellacked in love
