Milan: With cowboy hats, mixed prints and embellished boxy Chanel-inspired skirt suits, Rosella Jardini’s Moschino girls looked like eccentric Texas oil heiresses. Pantsuits were slim and cropped and came in wearable white and navy, striking purple or kooky black and white polka dots. Scribbly geometrics, both large- and small-scale, were used for printed tops and dresses, as well as the quirky ascots that accompanied most suits. Jardini, perhaps ironically, played with the most notorious denim style – the mom jean; high-waisted, full-hipped, tapered and rolled up, the styles recalled the maligned 1980s versions, but crisp white tops and tailored blazers gave them a more put-together look. Though the designer is never one to follow trends, the eye-catching bright purple and red tones looked right in this season of blazing color, and the playful mood connected with the sense of optimism that has been in the air at the collections thus far.
