Moschino Cheap & Chic Spring Summer 2013: Right-On Style

15 September 2012 by

Moschino Cheap & Chic, the Italian brand's sister label, has become known for its mash up of styles and experimental looks - and since its break away from the Milanese schedule last season has become part of the big brand migration to London's rollcall of new shows. So when we tell you that this season's collection comprised of CND prints, flares, string vest sportswear and heavy crystal embellishment, you shouldn't be too surprised.

This season's palette veered from a Jackson 5-esque combination of chartreuse, magenta and orange to softer sorbet combinations of mint and pink - and there were plenty of trend notes nailed. From mega looks like this season's seemingly ubiquitous dungarees - seen here in sheeny peach - to pretty tie dye - another trend that's been kicking around the shows from Tory Burch to House of Holland, this collection covered several bases.

The 70s influences were seen not only in the colour scheme and printed flares, but in the styling - Almost Famous look wavy dos were matched with massive bug-eye shades, platform wedges and electric blue eye makeup. But the Me Decade wasn't the only point of reference, as we also had hints of more modern times - pineapple printed jackets were teamed with leather trackpants cuffed at the ankle, whilst string vest tracksuits and bombers brought modern dress codes into play. Music-wise we were treated to another trip down 90s memory lane with a remix of Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It". And since most of the FROW - which included Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe and a glossy Kelly Brook - had just come from House of Holland, where we'd been jigging to 90s club classics, it's quickly  becoming apparent that this season everyone wants to party like its 1995.
