MILAN - Italian fashion label Moschino showed its Spring Summer 2013 collection first up on the second day of Milan Fashion Week, kicking off with a number of monochrome pieces.
The first model strutted the catwalk in a white mini-dress and jacket, featuring black piping running from the shoulders to the waist. Sleeves were kept to elbow length, with inches of skin visible above the short white gloves she sported.
Big buttons ran down the front of the frock, with pointed colours a nice touch. To top things off the model wore round black sunglasses and a white hat shaped like a Christmas bauble.
The next look was similar, but ramped things up a level. The jacket was still white, with more black detailing at the collar and pockets. It was juxtaposed with a tight black skirt, boasting white piping.
Stripes were one of the hottest looks on the New York Fashion Week runways and Milan is following suit. Moschino used stripes in thigh-length jackets, with black and white offering a monochrome take on the trend. Jackets and skirts followed suit, with stripes also featuring in later more colourful looks.
Electric blue capri pants were paired with a loose-fitting blue and white striped t-shirt – once again echoing a colour that was a hot favourite with New York and London fashion designers – which was peppered with yellow accents.
Diamond patterns featured on trousers, while a checked print in a range of reds and pinks made a form-fitting jumpsuit really stand out; again colours that have already been highlighted for Spring Summer 2013 in New York, London and on day one of Milan Fashion Week at the Gucci show.
Moschino also featured the all-over colour trend, with one model walking in a bold yellow outfit consisting of a loose jacket and tight jumpsuit with cutouts at the waist.
Milan Fashion Week continues with the hotly anticipated Versace show, with Bottega Veneta, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni and Giorgio Armani presenting over the weekend.
