MOSCHINO FALL 2018 RTW COLLECTION
Jeremy Scott recreates the '60s with an alien invasion for the Moschino Fall collection.
March 1, 2018
In true Jeremy Scott style, the Creative Director sent a parade of alien Jackie Kennedys down the runway for the Moschino Fall 2018 collection. Scott is a conspiracy theorist and his Fall starting point was a JFK conspiracy, the one conjecturing that President Kennedy told Marilyn Monroe aliens were real.
While star Grace Elizabeth donned a ’60s era pillbox hat and Gigi Hadid wore an embellished sea foam green gown, other models were made up in body and face makeup in hues of purple and blue, accentuated further by neon suit jackets and matching purses.
The boldly hued skirtsuits and pillbox hats were actually rather conservative in their formal 1960s attire. The spoptlighte were the printed pieces Scott made in collaboration with Ben Frost, an artist and a kindred spirit who draws illustrations on advertising images and packaging. Elevated eye candy—quite literally in the case of Skittles packaging that said “Freckles” instead.
Scott is outspoken in his politics, and he’s strongly opposed to Donald Trump’s stance on illegal aliens. “I’m not anti-alien,” he said. “I don’t want to build a wall.” Scott’s all-inclusive, everyone’s-welcome-here sense of fun has won him a rabid fan base—both at home at his eponymous collection and abroad at Moschino.
