Moschino Gets Sketchy for Spring 2019

It looks as though Jeremy Scott's been watching a lot of "Project Runway" lately.

Did Jeremy Scott find his inspiration for the Spring 2019 Moschino collection while shopping at Mood Fabrics or JoAnn's Crafts? It sure seems that way, as the designer sent marker-style scribble prints, giant scissors, measuring tape and rolls of material down the runway in Milan on Thursday evening. Or perhaps he had recently binged "Project Runway"; the entire collection looked like a reality-show-esque challenge, wherein he was tasked with creating life-size versions of workroom essentials. 

The first few looks set the sketchy tone for the rest of the collection: Crisp white sheath dresses and suits were painted on with bold, crayon-box hues in a messy, haphazard manner that mimicked the coloring book masterpieces of young students. Then Scott threw in some transparent pieces – all decorated with black doodles – followed by a series of wrap dresses, skirt suits and swimwear, punctuated with the brand's signature zany patterns and stripes.

Each look was accessorized with a retro-style flat, wide-brimmed hat and some DIY chunky jewels. Scott rounded out the warm-weather offering with eveningwear, which brought the contents of a sewing kit to life in prom form: A pincushion was transformed into a pillbox hat and paired with a matching red cape, a thimble was reimagined as a floor-grazing, fully fringed silver gown and a tape measure was reworked into a ruffled cocktail-attire shawl. The show concluded with Gigi Hadid as a princess bride, followed by a mobile train of butterflies. What's that sound? Ah, yes, it's Tim Gunn screeching "Make it work!" directly at Mr. Scott.
