Everything I've read about it's founder, Franco Moschino, is also very inspiring. He was artistic and creative and produced very high-quality garments, while also publicly expressing criticism of the fashion industry (I vaguely remember early advertising campaigns that boasted slogans such as: "Warning: fashion shows can be dangerous to your health" and "Good taste doesn't exist").
Moschino launched the line in 1983 and never abandoned his fierce commitment to the environment and animal and human rights.Moschino died in 1994 at age 43, and Rosella Jardini
took over as creative director, continuing to produce irreverent, playful, wearable collections in line with it's founders legacy.
I've always been interested in the very different looks that can come out of one fashion house. Marc Jacobs Collection versus Marc by Marc Jacobs is one example of two very different lines by one designer. While I was going various fashion week collections, I was struck by the juxtaposition between Moschino RTW and Moschino Resort. I really like them both. Do you have a preference?
Check out my faves from both collections after the jump:
Sunday is almost over! I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and has a great week ahead.
