To say that Rossella Jardini explored tartan with a vivid stubbornness this season would be an understatement, as the Scottish pattern practically took over the runway at the Moschino fall / winter 2013 presentation. From feisty tuxedos, to three-piece suits and mini-kilts nodding towards the playful Japanese schoolgirl uniforms, everything in the collection was loudly emblazoned with golden “M” badges and topped with oversized riding helmets.
The large use of equestrian and skiing elements throughout the line made sense once Ann Bonfoey Taylor was named the official Moschino muse this season. To her iconic style and unique personality we owe the presence of slim trousers with built-in peplums, cropped riding jackets and the retro hiking-boot heels in the collection, components which proved of essence in shaping and complementing Jardini’s rigid vision.
The “indispensable black and white” segment of the show proved to be the most appealing as stripped down of all heaviness and well guarded from the tartan invasion. There a rugby shirt turned sleek jumpsuit, two beautiful renderings of the chic equestrian coat and a modern take on the leather biker jacket served to prove that Moschino is more than just tartans.
