MOSCHINO PRE-FALL 2020 COLLECTION
Jeremy Scott takes the Moschino show in New York to the Brooklyn’s Transit Museum.
December 13, 2019
The Transit Museum in New York was the backdrop for the Moschino Pre-Fall 2020 runway show. “I love this idea because it’s everything about New York. We always talk about high and low and the subway goes literally high and low: uptown and downtown and that mix is something that is quintessential to my aesthetic,” said Jeremy Scott.
Scott’s hyperrealism was in full effect as he worked his way through a subway car’s worth of New York subcultures to a soundtrack that included the familiar warning, “stand clear of the closing doors,” and an appearance by Showtime dancers. The Moschino frontman worked on the macro level: puffer jackets were super supersized, as were baseball caps, the house logo, and a gargantuan red backpack that seems destined to out-meme last week’s giant yellow Opening Ceremony tote.
Color-blocked track suits were converted into cocktail dresses and gowns, and otherwise staid trenches and leather jackets were finished with giant Moschino Couture labels. The portable music player of choice circa now is an iPhone 11—arguably they’re tools for shutting other people out—but boomboxes are much more visually interesting and they’re communal, too, so he put them on outerwear and hoodies.
