Jeremy Scott has managed to top last season's McDonald's/Spongebob-themed collection with an even more lurid, fun and recognizable influence: Barbie. And that's it. Just Barbie.
Before the show, he said, "There's one main reference and it's Barbie. I'm taking her through her day to evening. She is quite famous for having a lot of looks - rollerskating looks, jogging looks, every look — she's an institution." He continued, "There are no other references because she encompasses everything. She's had every job. She's even been an astronaut. Barbie basically is the full package — plus she loves an evening dress which is very important for Moschino."
And the show was really a testament to the doll's sartorial versatility: it featured everything from swimwear to loungewear to exercise wear (feat. roller skates!) to business attire to evening gowns, etc. etc. It was pure, campy fun: some of the interpretations were quite literal. And it will available online by Sunday, so I'm sure the accessories — especially the Barbie mirror iPhone case — will become ubiquitous in the blink of an eye.
Here's the whole collection:
