I know I'm slightly late on the uptake here (working full-time is cramping in on blog time), but Jeremy Scott's Barbie influenced line for Moschino SS15 is bloody glorious.
The hair and makeup and models are perfect, but the way that the outfits are almost direct replicas of the tacky 90s outfits Barbie dolls used to come dressed in are perfect. Who said high-fashion couldn't have a hint of tack?
With use of PVC and crazy accessories (including replica plastic Barbie hangers?!) it is literally like someone has brought Barbie to life in this fashion show. Bold prints, sparkles, glitter, a touch of PVC leather, insanely bold statement accessories and PINK envelopes the catwalk collection. I'm not sure how much of an impact this will have on high street fashion for SS15, but I imagine the pink and 90s vibes will carry on through in some way, similar to SS14's pastels trend but kicked up a notch. Guessing more neon over pastels and bigger more exaggerated shapes we were used to seeing in the 90s.
Easily the most fun I've seen a designer have with a collection and the most vibrant and exciting thing to hit LFW in a long time, which is probably why it's gotten so much media coverage. Big fan.
