Italian luxury house MOSCHINO presented their Resort 2023 Womenswear Collection, that was inspired by Waikiki’s beach parties and Acapulco’s discotecas circa 1969, and it reimagines a bygone era of glamorous sunseeking with a modern twist. The collection fuses hippie, disco, and formal elements together. Designer Jeremy Scott explores the vintage vibes with crochet pieces, in some cases, they’re quilted together, depicting flowers, smiley faces, and a version of the brand’s teddy bear. Mixed in retro airport upholstery patterns, wavy jacquards and polka-dot embroideries are seen on a maxi-dress, a bra top, leggy trousers, a beret and many more pieces. Fashion photographer Marcus Mam captured the lookbook featuring models Alex Consani, Briana Michelle, Remington Williams, and Valentine. In charge of casting direction was DM Casting. Beauty is work of hair stylist Danilo Dixon, makeup artist Lottie, and manicurist Yoko Sakakura. Video direction by Jeremy Eichenbaum.
“As the vacation continues – and as the seaside dancing ramps up – color and texture scale up. Doilies are fashioned into form-fitting suits and tops. Floral designs are appliquéd over crop tops and mod skirts, and psychedelic crochet panels are stitched together to create elongated pants and dresses (very nostalgia-meets-now, in tone). As the moonlight shines bright and the sea glows white, we reach the zenith of the night: sequined evening numbers, invoking the styles of holiday-making Cher and Diana Ross. Multicolored flowers wrap around a cutout column dress; a polychrome pattern unfurls across a deep-v jumpsuit. The final dance? An entirely sequined halter dress, complete with a matching, glittering hood.” – from Moschino
