Moschino - Milan Fall 2009
(MILAN) Rossella Jardini always indulges her flights of fancy, and this season, quirky little touches threatened to overwhelm the classic silhouettes. But this is Moschino, after all, and that's how it should be. Navy jackets were studded with rosettes or topped with twisted silk collars and cuffs, while a red sheath was gussied-up with cascading ruffles from hip to knee. These exaggerated curves, which have emerged as one of Milan's most cohesive trends, exemplified this brand's obsession with playfulness. It worked beautifully in a navy silk frock with a layer of rose petals trapped between the base and a chiffon overlay.
