The Moschino Spring 2020 RTW runway show was held at the Palazzo del Ghiaccio’s venue-turned-catwalk, which boasted two life-size Baroque-style frames for an artistic feel.
Dedicated to Picasso and his muses, this collection was no exception. Rather appropriately the first look appeared to be a riff on Girl Before a Mirror. Later Bella Hadid played the Harlequin and Kaia Gerber was the Girl with Mandolin. The model as canvas idea allowed Scott to play around with two-dimensionality, a concept that produced one of his most memorable collections, Spring 2017’s life-size paper doll clothes. This time, the look that really got iPhones clicking was Cara Taylor’s; she was both painting and frame.
Thinking about Picasso led Scott to an extended riff on bullfighting, toreador costumes, and Stephen Jones’s brilliant headgear—the milliner gets a special commendation for the Cubist bull mask. There was also a flamenco aside which produced a fabulous red gown with brushed-on polka dots. Scott said backstage that all of the prints were hand-painted in the studio before being digitized.
