Moschino is known for its bonkers approach to fashion and the front row won’t have been disappointed by the show today. It was an early start for fashionistas in Milan this morning but fortunately Moschino had the good will to stream the show live on their website which unlike other shows, even worked on iPad. Woop!
The collection was a bizarre parade of toy soldiers meets Nutcracker meets cowboys meets bikers.
Most exciting for me having to recreate the look, I instantly thought ” I already have that jacket! You may remember it from Ken’s Monaco Grand Prix shoot last May (one of my gave shoots ever by the way).
Of course I was pleased to see even more houndstooth. You know I can’t get enough!
I absolutely loved it and fell in love with Moschino all over again. Yes it was quirky and kookily styled but the actual clothes were all really pretty. Cute jackets. Puffy skirts. All adorable.
I was also thrilled to see a gorgeous puffy pleated skirt on the catwalk as I have just purchased something verysimilar on eBay. Talk about fashion forward!
Ciao bella! Wow! What a start to Milan. I hate to rush these things but I know you’re all dying to see what Barbie of the Day thinks of the latest offerings on the runway. Yesterday’s shows were to die for, however, and I could quite happily spend all week recreating the looks from Gucci and Alberta Ferretti. This is my idea of heaven. Lots of black! Shiny or sheer. Punctuated with fruits of the forest and red wine lips. And then out of nowhere a white tuxedo. Genius! Lace, chiffon, leather, fur. This is all so Italian and all so delicioso! The ultimate in “slutty funeral chic” which is a huge part of the Barbie of the Day aesthetic. Maybe Donatella will change my mind but I’m pretty sure I know what I’m wearing to the Oscars on Sunday.
As promised, here is another Versace inspired look from Milan this weekend. Donatella took her bow in a single sleeved dominatrix style LBD, modelled here by our Versace wannabe. Footwear fans have been asking on Twitter for some BOTD shoe porn and we hate to disappoint. This week we will be paying particular attention to our top mo-dolls feet. Enjoy!
At London Fashion Week we saw stars. In Milan we’re seeing spots. HRH Henry Holland used a star motif for his collection at LFW but BOTD has gone for a gold polka dot LBD with matching glitzy gold nails to make Sophy Robson proud.
A dressed down BOTD en route to Milano. The fashion caravan is getting ready to move on from London so we’ve packed our tiny luggage in preparation for some hot Italian fashion. How long until Paris? When will it all end?
