With my beloved NYC’s streets as his starting point, Moscino’s designer Jeremy Scott made it a priority to design graffiti for his Fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection, and it showed in the terrific finale dresses. He got the details exactly right, all the way down to the “Hello, My Name Is” stickers that were slapped on some of the spray paint designs. I was in love! “Wearable art” I thought.
Backstage after his latest Moschino collection, he explained: “I was thinking about the street, maybe a bit New York, the way hip hop changes streetwear and renders it deluxe. I wanted to play with eveningwear so I did the graffiti – it’s eveningwear that’s been tagged, that has a lived-quality of a lamppost or a mailbox. I wanted to capture that mood of every corner of New York in a new, elegant way.”
I am a huge fan of this couture/contemporary wearable art fashion and would unapologetically definitely wear it …at the right gala of course. I feel it is a red carpet perfect look, and I am not the only one. Madonna and Katy Perry also think so, they stunned the fashion world at last night’s ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ gala, at New Yorks City’s Metropoloran Museum of Art, wearing Moschino graffiti couture. How fitting! They were indeed two my favorite Met Gala costumes! I can totally picture these looks ( dare say celebrities?) styled with pieces from my Persephone Fall 15 Collection (please see image right below). What do you think?
Met Gala 2015 | China: Through the Looking Glas
The Costume Institute’s spring 2015 exhibition, China: Through the Looking Glass, is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from May 7 through August 16, 2015. Presented in the Museum’s Chinese Galleries and Anna Wintour Costume Center, the exhibition explores the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries. In this collaboration between The Costume Institute and the Department of Asian Art, high fashion is juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.
