Jeremy Scott’s Los Angeles Moschino Resort 2020 runway show was nostalgic, screaming with humor and modernity, held at Universal Studios.
Scott sent forth his models as trick-or-treaters in a foggy twilight. There were references to horror-core galore: “Redrum” printed vertically on a dress (The Shining); neon green leather with trompe l’oeil stitches (Frankenstein); a model shrieking and banging on doors (an homage to Drew Barrymore’s character in Scream, which Scott mentioned was one of the night’s main inspirations). Yet even though there were a lot of silver screen throwbacks, the takeaway was very Stranger Things (season three airs in three weeks).
“I wanted to take the most mundane, beautiful, manicured, perfect setting because that’s where the darkest things always happen,” said Scott.
He suggested platform boots in pumpkin orange, extra-oversized sweatshirts sewn through with even more oversized ruffles, graphic trope-y tees and spider web-studded moto jackets. A relatively subtle dress read “Trick or Chic.” At the finale, a “corpse bride” walked out, holes burned into the hem of her wedding gown.
