MOSCHINO FALL 2020 RTW COLLECTION
Jeremy Scott creates a very ’80s Moschino collection for Fall, just not the ’80s you would expect.

Creative Director Jeremy Scott was thinking about the French Revolution and Marie Antoinette for the Moschino Fall 2020 RTW collection.
“Well on the geopolitical spectrum, thinking about the 1780s and what’s going on today globally: Are the Hong Kong protests against an oppressive government? In Chile they’re protesting against a rise in subway fares; obviously my home country’s gotta lotta shit goin’ on, and y’all Brex-exiting…there’s a lot happening.” “And thinking about that,” he added, “the turmoil is very similar in a way to…” To “Let them eat…?” he was asked. “Moschino!” he answered.
Scott clashed his Marie Antoinette pannier dresses with the most emblematic womenswear garment of the radical 1960s, the miniskirt. The mini pannier starred under maxi hair in various iterations: gold brocade on denim, white biker, black biker, and toile de Jouy.
This archetypally 18th-century pattern was used across the collection with the original faces of its courtiers transformed into wide-eyed anime characters that made you think of the excess of Harajuku dress.
Scott extended his whistle-stop romp through bygone iconography with bikers, skirts, frock coats, and dresses made of richly colored patches of velvet furniture fabric, and apparently tapestried princess scenes featuring more anime ingenues.
