At Moschino, spring/summer 2013 saw a return to the Swinging Sixties, with two of the decade’s most recognisable aesthetics resurrected on the catwalk. The opening looks took inspiration from Mod culture; models combined double-breasted macs and mini skirts in a striking monochrome colour palette with beehive-friendly helmets, driving gloves and goggle-style oversized sunglasses before letting their hair down in mirrorball mini dresses that perfectly expressed disco fever.
Later looks drew on flower power, with densely printed florals worn head-to-toe in an exuberant spectrum of primary colours broken up by candy-striped skirt suits, girlish broderie anglaise dungarees and sweet sundresses that added a childlike, fresh quality to the collection. Despite this diversity, every look was firmly rooted in the 60s, from the dangerously high hemlines to the cropped capri pants and Peter Pan collars. This was the reincarnation of a decade that feels more than ready for a revival, especially when executed in such a refreshing way.
