Jeremy Scott has never been one to do things by halves. With invitations taking the form of a dainty black satin ballet slipper, expectations were as high as ever for the Moschino Creative Director’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. And so, out came Kaia Gerber – who else? – introducing a series of ballerina-meets-'80s-punk-star looks, to the front row’s delight. Heavy on the metal, leather biker jackets, studded collars, boots and fishnet tights were teamed with embellished bustiers, feather tutus and My Little Pony T-shirts, trunk bags and clutches – something, let’s face it, only Scott would and could do…
Never failing to captivate the crowds with his endlessly eccentric creativity, the tone instantly changed as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons welcomed the last looks: a finale of florals. While florals, you’d think, are a natural fit for spring, Scott’s pick of the bunch saw models metamorphose into giant flowers. Couture-worthy gowns were covered in lifelike flowers, thigh-high boots seemed to have shoots bursting out of them; his pièce de résistance – Gigi Hadid dressed as a human-sized bouquet. All topped off with Christy Turlington-inspired pixie cuts and make-up by the one and only Tom Pecheux, it was another perfectly executed stamp of Moschino’s standout fashion.
