menswear collections: moschino, fall
by Jeremy Danté
the FW11 collection presented for the house of moschino combined elements of classical menswear to that of rugby sportswear. while im not, by definition, considered a jock- the close of the runway show seemingly swaped models for actual athletes as the men who appeared walked toting what appear to be rugby footballs. i love the concept of athleticism in fashion & feel that it adds another classical dimension to menswear; almost always, i love the fused elements from sportswear to that of clothing for men. the palette was predominantly black with heavy accents of red with minimal use of white with shots of blue throughout. francisco lachowski opened the show as runway slayer, zakaria khiare also appeared on the runway. a solid cast with creative concepts for fall. all in all a strong direction & impressive execution; expert layering seen with the styling.
