Supermodels went back to the '60s at Moschino.



Watch Moschino's 'Austin Powers'-Style Collection In Gif Form

At MADE L.A. this past weekend, Moschino made its Los Angeles debut with a show that designer Jeremy Scott called his “love letter” to the city. It was a pure Scott affair: joyful, tinged with psychedelia, and peppered with celebrities. Overall, the collection felt like ’60s, happy, pre-Manson Family Angelenos mated with Indian master craftsmen, and we’re very much here for it. Read on for the highlights.

The Look That Gave Us Life…

Bleach-haired model of the moment Soo Joo Park rocked a floral, bejeweled suit that evoked the silhouettes of the night crawlers of the ’70s Sunset Strip. Very Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

We Spied…

It was L.A., so of course the stars came out in droves. We chatted with Cindy Crawford, who was celebrating her son Presley Gerber’s runway debut, and stars like Caitlyn Jenner, Katy Perry, Amber Rose, and singer Jhené Aiko were all there to take in the spectacle. The runway had no shortage of top models, including Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Charlotte Free, Hailey Baldwin, Taylor Hill, Jasmine Tookes, Romee Strijd, and Anna Cleveland. Supermodel Devon Aoki, looking like a genie that popped out of a Dr. Seuss tale, closed the show with Scott.

Adding to our shopping list…

Mirrored go-go boots are a must, as well as anything and everything crochet. We could see one knit duster doubling as a glamorous coverup in Ibiza, or anywhere where there’s a beach and loads of champagne.

It’s In The Details…

Scott’s experiments included mirrored embroidery, which almost sparkled on the runway. Models wore plastic leis, adding to the beach vibe, and men rocked bright little briefs that would have been perfect for LA Pride. And we were living for the papier-mâché bangles.

We Can’t Wait To Wear This…

A lot of the clothes—and especially the floppier accessories—seemed tailor-made for Burning Man. We’d wear Moschino at the festival, but only if we got to sleep in a location where dust wouldn’t penetrate all of the lovely knitwork. It was all also very, very Austin Powers. Felicity Shagwell would be proud.
