Moschino could not host a presentation this season due to the coronavirus pandemic. In these extenuating circumstances, Vogue Runway has made an exception to its policy and is writing about this collection via photos and remote interviews.
News that the EU may ban American travelers due to U.S. coronavirus failures has major implications for Jeremy Scott, the creative director of Moschino. Scott calls California home and Moschino is based in Milan, Italy. Fittings for the spring 2021 show scheduled for September begin in a week and they will be done entirely virtually. “This time is about finding my way around all the different obstacles, finding creativity and positivity, and trying to keep being upbeat about it,” Scott said.
The resort offering pictured here is in keeping with those sentiments, like so many of the Moschino collections Scott has designed before; his aesthetic and the house’s aesthetic are as sympatico as they come. But in fact this is his second go-around at the season; the first had to be scrapped. “Truthfully I had started one and realized it wasn’t going to be the right mood,” Scott explained. It was early in the lockdown and he was worried about his colleagues in Italy, where the pandemic is hitting hard. What he came up with and what you see here was a love letter “from and to Moschino.”
