CHANGING OF THE GUARD
Milan: With gilded insignia, sashes, medals, and equestrian helmets on display, British formal military dress seemed to be the theme behind Rosella Jardini’s latest Moschino collection. There was also a nod to Scotland with numerous takes on the classic tartan, in addition to a handful of kilts and sporran-inspired bags. The show began with a series of tailored ensembles that included a three-piece pantsuit and a couple of narrow-shouldered, double-breasted coats, whose precise fit recalled that of a military uniform. Jardini loosened things up a bit with feminine peplum dresses, intarsia sweaters, and even some motorcycle jackets. Two looks that featured Native American-inspired suede fringe diverged from the theme, but the designer quickly brought back the military fare. Overall, the military inspirations, though not necessarily new territory, were a good fit for the label, showing off Jardini’s expert tailoring, as well as her cheeky sense of humor. –Joanna Manganaro
