With cartoon characters, teddy bears, Barbie and logos galore, it is fair to say Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is not for minimalists. He is a designer who appeals to a generation that requires pop art-like graphic statements in their bid to win at Instagram (it goes without saying that he has excellent emoji game).
This sheer joy of his sensibility comes to the high street next month, with the MOSCHINO x HM capsule collection. Here are our five favourite pieces, guaranteed to bring a bit of Scott-patented fun to your wardrobe this winter.
Men’s Goofy sweatshirt, £79.99
Scott loves Disney (Dumbo is appaz his favourite). That means loveable characters run amok in this collection. Goofy is a cult hero of the Disney universe and the appeal is doubled on this jumper that features a back print of him, too – as if he is running through your sweatshirt. A smile-worthy take on 360 degree fashion if ever there was one.
CDs shirt, £69.99
Sure, you stream your music these days but what better way to pay homage to the 90s than by wearing a print of obsolete technology? The CD print appears on a crop top, swimsuit and long shirt in this collection. We like the latter for its extra-90s slouchy style. Wear with leggings to complete the look.
Padded yellow miniskirt, £59.99
Padded jackets are now so commonplace that fashion people have taken to bringing the trend to other items. See padded gloves, padded trousers (yes really) and this padded skirt. Save for cold days and – if you are really embracing the padded trend – combine with the cropped padded jacket that Scott has so kindly provided.
Hoop earrings, £29.99
The Moschino logo, created by founder Franco Moschino in the80s, is a classic – so it is rightly sprinkled liberally all over this collection. These earrings tick the logo-mania box by telling every passerby exactly who your earrings are by. They also fulfil the very 2018 need for a lobe-based fashion statement. Two birds and all that.
Doggy hoody, £59.99
If you are kitted out in your best H M x Moschino then your favourite pet should be too, right? Scott has provided two doggy hoodies – and we liked the dressed-down cool of this grey marl hoodie. If the concept of a small dog wearing clothes can ever be described as “dressed-down”.
