Well I say, what’s the big idea Mr. Scott? I didn’t think it could get any whackier than last year’s McMadness inspired collection of red and golden arches handbags, two piece suits, blazers and more, or SpongeBob Square Pants sweater dresses, pants, shirts and coats, but you may have topped it with the 2015 fall/winter Looney Tunes collection that landed a place on the runways of Milan.
Sports inspired basketball and hockey jerseys, baseball jackets and pants, rugby shirts and even a gown complete with opera length gloves made their way down the catwalk.
The pieces are embossed with your favourite iconic Looney Tunes characters, decked out in hip hop 90s bling, basketball sneaks and bucket hat or cap turned sideways. Tweety, Bugs, Sylvester, Elmer, Porky Pig, Foghorn Legghorn and the Tazmanian Devil all got a place in the spotlight on the catwalk.
Teddy Bears were also big at Moschino with bear bags, bear print dresses, skirts, tops, and plush chubbies with hood and ears. This look gave an option for those that love sports but don’t want to look like they are a player and favour the mascot – or furry fandom.
If you love this look, you gotta have the big bucks because Bugs doesn’t come cheap. For a Bunny printed jersey mini dress, you can expect to shell out $1280 USD. For Daffy printed on baseball style track pants, it’ll cost a whopping $1050. And for a Porky Pig intarsia sweater dress, you should plan to spend $895. The Teddy insignia goes for a little less, closer to the $500 range. I’d say “zoinks” but that’s the wrong cartoon.
Honestly, I find Daffy Duck on a dress to be . . . well . . . daffy. I’m not buying in on this trend. I don’t care if it’s Jeremy Scott, if it’s high fashion, if he brings the fun factor to fashion, if it’s Milan, the fashion mecca of the world. No can do. I’m sitting this look out.
