Moschino Cheap and Chic is known for its sense of fun, something that is sometimes lacking in Fashion Week, and the label’s debut London presentation did not disappoint. The make-up-inspired collection had a dressing-up box fantasy feel, with princess coats and furry pom-pom trims in a candy-cane palette.
Dresses were strewn with graphic prints of full make-up bags, while more abstract pieces sported heavily shadowed eyes and photographs of neon lips. Large sequins in rainbow shades added a touch of sparkle, teamed with snakeskin courts and messy up-dos to give a fun twist to the very feminine ensembles. Shapes were form-flattering, with pleated skirts hitting just above the knee, light, fitted knit jumpers and nipped-in waists. The standout piece was a semi-sheer tea dress featuring lipsticks, eye-shadow palettes and nail varnishes, all topped with a furry pom-pom Peter Pan collar.
The show’s equally eclectic guests, known for their experimental fashion choices, included singers Pixie Lott, Sunday Girl, Eliza Doolittle and Nicola Roberts – all of whom are sure to be sporting a piece of cosmetic-inspired chic next season.
