Moschino Cheap & Chic at London Fashion Week
The Balroom at The Savoy was unsurprisingly packed out for the Moschino Cheap & Chic show at London Fashion Week today, with the likes of Peaches Geldof, Jaime Winstone and Frankie and Mollie from The Saturdays in the front row. If you caught the livestream on Catwalk Queen you'll know what the show was like, but for those who missed it, we have the video for a little bit longer at the bottom of this post (plus a few pics, of course).
Like many shows, it followed a mostly black and white colour palette, with plenty of poppy bubblegum pink thrown in. There were big nods to rock and roll, with huge furry jackets, guitar handbags and a touch of leopard print thrown in for glamorous appeal.
Elsewhere, an oversize graffiti print reminded us the Louis Vuitton collaboration with Stephen Sprouse, albeit in much larger form, on dresses and jackets rather than bags. It looked great on the dress silhouette the label has chosen for the season - a simple shift with a six inch frill at the hem to give a cute, pouffy finish that came sleeveless, double-breasted and in a myriad of colours.
Question marks on knitwear has us thinking of The Riddler, while a midi length lace-trimmed slip dress in animal print was exactly the kind of thing we could imagine Courtney Love and Amanda De Cadenet wearing at the height of their partygoing 90s grunge era. Also an evident inspiration was the 60s, with plenty of little texture-trimmed mini dresses and a couple of Chanel-esque boxy jackets.
