Moschino Men's Fall 2009

A surreal impression stimulates Moschino. Rossella Jardini displayed a witty and fun collection providing a careful amount of vivacity to Milan. She was inspired by the late Belgian surrealist artist, René Magritte, who was known for his amusing and thought-provoking images. Magritte’s motivation was perceptible when each model sported a bowler hat, an obsessive piece that was displayed countless times in his art work. Surrealist touches were seen on various pieces with black and white photocopy prints that gave an impression of something else. A classic blazer looked like a leather biker jacket and sweater had a faux pen with eyeglasses woven on it making it look realistic. In addition, Jardini gave reference to the traditional English menswear with clean cut tailored suits and striped ties. There was also hint of military in a number jackets and combat boots. Moschino gave a clean modern look that was appropriately fitting for a proper British gent.

The feeling of surrealism played out on the invitation for the show with catchphrase, “feel surreal,” with a faceted detachable mustache. The show opened with a navy double breasted coat with a white crisp shirt paired with navy trousers with sky blue stripes. There also the inspired Magritte bowler hat and black wingtip shoes. The stripes played out in many other pieces such as lining of the hoods, trousers, ties and complete suits. Coats were very prominent with traditional outerwear, a poncho and a fur parka with some structural form. Surrealism was outstanding in the white t-shirt that was outlined of jacket with a bow tie made to give the illusion of a tuxedo.

The laced and zippered combats boots had a military sense was absolutely striking and gave each look some panache. The Magritte bowler hats were outstanding and came in colors of black, charcoal grey, navy and white. Leather riding gloves also gave a chic touch to various looks and matched the boots and shoes.

The admired piece in the collection was the classic blazer that was printed to look like a leather biker jacket. Pleasant pieces were the fine tailored traditional suits with various colored stripes. The must have pieces are the laced and zippered combat boots.

Rosella Jardini has evoked the spirit of the great surrealist artist René Magritte with a remarkable collection. The late Franco Moschino would have been proud to see that his former assistant Jardini has maintained his great elements of keeping the collection witty, lively and colorful. The Moschino man next winter season is ready to have fun with great clever style. –Brent Billiman, Milan, Italy.

  1. Ray Banのサングラスをかけて、父さんと一緒に釣りに行くことは今だにもよく覚えています。その頃はまだ子供である私はたくさんのものに興味を持っていました。父さんに釣りやレイバン モデルのことについてもよく聞きました。問題の内容は忘れてしまったが、そん時のレイバン RB4105はまだ印象深いです。
