Jeremy Scott presented a Moschino Pre-Fall 2018 show with purposefully provocative lineup that spanned dominatrix to ladylike with a range filled with unconventional outerwear, suiting, shirting, bottoms, and accessories.
“In the end, aren’t we all joined?” Scott offered backstage in the midst of models lifting off their latex masks.
Head-turning pieces include a hooded trench coat with text-heavy motifs, lightweight blousons with printed safety-pin graphics, button-downs with shoulder straps, and floral-printed trousers.
The spotlight on glossy black surfaces automatically gave a high degree of kink to this collection with a swatch of lacing defining the back waist of a tailored coat, and lingerie over suiting and T-shirts. Several looks—including a gown boasting a train shaped like an overgrown glove—could be viewed through the lens of #whywewearblack. Scott’s response: “People are in control of their sexuality and the way they want to look; you’re owning your own power.”
A male model looked no less masculine in a frilly dressing gown or tiered tulle cape, just as the women rocked suspenders with their fuck-me boots. Filter out the fetish, though, and you’re left with a fair number of curb-appeal coats, some rather stunning evening options, and a black adaption of last year’s pink pussy hat.
