Milan Fashion Week got off to a fun-filled start with Moschino's candy pink Cheap & Chic collection and D&G's sexy cowgirls
Moschino Cheap & Chic
Fashion is 'full of chic', according to Moschino who ran the slogan on a canvas tote! The feel-good show, bursting with oversized daisy jumpsuits, plump white ruffles, candy rainbow stripe T-shirts and a swan playsuit complete with little yellow feet. Colours were loud in monochrome, edible pink and candy.
Lengths were bikini-wax short or dusting the floor. In Moschino land the summer hat resembles a flat daisy, its brim hazy with floppy petals, two-tone shoes are patent and open-weave, bags shouted paintbrush strokes and graffiti slogans such as Shocking! And Fun!
As usual the Moschino Cheap & Chic girl is determinedly looking at the sunny side of life...
At D&G cowgirls were not singing the blues. Instead they had a healthy injection of sex appeal, all ruched pannier mini skirts, shrug-on faded denim shirts, brown leather obi belts and studded tasselled boots.
Domenico and Stefano played with patchwork denim playsuits, shorts, and the ruffled skirts of all skirts - in milky white tiers that dusted the floor. It was all pretty ra-ra: punched leather corsetry included. One of the most desirable pieces? The breezy little white lace dress that curled at the hips. Adorable for the cowgirls of summer 2010.
