Moschino Dresses the Materials Girl in Us All

By Eliza Jordan

February 27, 2017

During Milan Fashion Week, Moschino brought out the materials girl in us all, calling out unsustainable consumption in fashion. The fall/winter 2017 collection was a special delivery full of “Cardboard Couture,” where silhouettes wore “Fragile” stickers, “This Way Up” stamps, “Do Not Crush” warning labels, and duct tape trim. There were glossy magazine spreads across many of the suits, dresses, and coats, and a fringe made from frayed newspaper.

We saw bags, shoes, hats, jewelry, and belts all with a recyclable look. The mini dress of the season was a plastic reimagined version of the Moschino bag dress, and dry cleaning sheaths became the new organza. There was an outfit (and matching bag!) made entirely out of gloves, takeout bags, and laundry slips seen in the form of see-through short square-neck dresses, tanks, and a cap-sleeved floor-length dress.

The collection (which brought to mind the “Derelicte” collection by Mugatu in Zoolander, admittedly) also sourced surprising material in carpets, tissue boxes, clear curtains, and even candelabras. The season was powered by the desire to dress in whatever you can get wrapped up in next, no matter the material.
