Moschino Designer: Rossella Jardini

  • "Moschino presented an ironic twist on the Nutcracker soldier to kick off the third day of Milan fashion week on Friday, with a parade of colourful military-style outfits, jazzed up for party girls." [AFP]
  • "Britpop-meets-Scot-schlock." [

    The Daily Telegraph]

  • "The mini and at times, box-like silhouettes echoed the luxury teenage power dressing of the 90s. Shut up! We're, like, so talking the wardrobe of (now classic) movie 'Clueless.'" [Dazed Digital]
  • "It was wittily titled ‘M-Shire: Tales of the Moschinoshire,' and riffed on tartan to the beat of 1990s Britpop." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "Another collection of fun fashion and colour conviction." [i-D Online]
  • "Moschino did its best not to turn Scotland the Brave into Scotland the Bore. It is difficult when the Highlands have been mined so often for inspiration to get anything new out of plaid. But with taut jackets, perky pleated skirts and jaunty military helmets, the collection seemed upbeat and fun." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "Leave it to Moschino’s designer Rossella Jardini to attempt to blend horseback riding, skiwear, traditional Scottish dress, men’s suiting and Western attire. Only a house known for its fun fashion attitude and ironic take on style could risk such a zany idea." [NOWFASHION]
  • "For all the tartan, kilts, and handbags worn like sporrans in Moschino's Fall 2013 collection, Rossella Jardini could have moved her show from Milan to Edinburgh." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "The only subversion came in the chunky Dalston Market-esque gold jewellery and couple of punkier looks--see the heavily embellished skirt suits and fringed cowgirl jackets - clearly thrown in for the bad girls at the back of the class." [SHOWstudio]
  • "A totally peculiar Highland fling, with incongruous injections of Annie Oakley and Japanese school uniforms." [Style.com]
  • "The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s exhibit on punk will feature some of the counterculture-inspired looks that first put Moschino on the map—including subversive show pieces like a 1950s couture-style dress made entirely from garbage bags ... [but] a more traditional spin on tartan was on the agenda for fall." [Vogue.com]
  • "There were a couple of Jardini's punk girls who had obviously escaped from her Cheap & Chic collection in London." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "Hold the prosecco. Italian designers are demonstrating a taste for whiskey this season, with Rossella Jardini the latest to embrace all things Scottish." [WWD]

Versace Designer: Donatella Versace

  • "talian fashion icon Donatella Versace brought her own spin to punk on Friday, unveiling a collection dominated by fierce outfits in shiny black, white, or lipstick red vinyls and deadly accessories." [AFP]
  • "The looks had a distinct women warrior energy." [AP]
  • "Versace's fall 2013 collection brought lots of Donatella's usual tight dresses, studded leather, and animal prints. But there were some interesting new developments too, including a number of furry black and yellow garments that made the models look like bumblebees." [The Cut/

    New York Magazine]

  • "In this, her slickest, most confident and comfortable collection in some time--in that this is Versace’s comfort zone, not that vinyl and silver spikes or nails as fastenings is in any way comfortable to wear--Donatella served up a huge hit." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "It's safe to say that the Versace view of this, possibly the most influential street style in history, was far from understated." [Grazia Daily]
  • "Milan fashion week wouldn't be the same without Versace's unabashed high-voltage, rock-star glitz, and this season there was simply no stopping Donatella." [The Guardian]
  • "More than 20 years after the sex fantasies of Gianni Versace and Jean Paul Gaultier, studded leather looks like an adolescent rash, it’s so commonplace and down-market. No wonder Donatella Versace, in her show on Friday, made the spikes in collars and dresses four inches long. There’s no edge left to the fantasy." [The New York Times]
  • "It was full on fetish time at the house of Versace this season with 'dominatrix' Donatella Versace turning her artistic vision towards creating a collection that was unapologetically obsessed with strong sexy clothing with a feisty finish." [NOWFASHION]
  • "Punk is definitely back. Blame the Met. But this is not punk as you know it according to Donatella, no this is something new. She's dubbed it, brace yourself, 'Vunk.'" [SHOWstudio]
  • "The house has a history with punk. And Donatella is fashion's original rock chick. So when those two threads were woven together tonight, you got one convincing statement. 'Vunk!' she called it. The spiky edge of punk, the slinky sex of Versace." [Style.com]
  • "Donatella Versace's punk-rock Fall '13 could safely supply the fashion set with a number of appropriately themed gowns for this year's Met Gala." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "She could have just as easily called it glunk, smashing together glam and punk, because, of course, in Donatella’s hands, that’s what her reading of the seditionary 1970s was all about; taking street culture with the greatest snarl of all time and clashing it with the values of Versace, which is about the three e’s of fashion--extravagance, exhibitionism, and elevation." [Vogue.com]
  • "This was not a collection for the faint-hearted. It was a collection for the fearless, the brave and those who are unapologetic when it comes to wearing sex (or maybe sexiness) on their sleeve." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "Va-va-va-Vunk! That’s Versace Punk, thank you, coined by the lady herself, and it was fabulous." [WWD]
