AW10 Press Days: Part Eight

Last week I attended well over 30 press days in three days, and whilst tiring I have to admit that I loved every minute of it. Kicking off the first day with a bang was the Moschino press day held just above the beautiful Conduit Street store, hidden away behind a chic red door.
For me the AW10 Moschino mainline and Cheap and Chic collections had many highlights and key pieces, with the fringed leather jacket (above) being a firm favourite.
I love it when you realise that your preconceived notions of what constitutes good and bad colour palettes for example, are totally wrong, which happened when I loved how they had tastefully worked lots of gold into a predominantly black collection.
I really aprreciated the subtle nods to Chanel present in the use of pearls, tweed mixes and heavy deatailing. I also like the gold chain print on black which reminded me very much of the likes of Lanvin and Celine. Whilst certain pieces in particular clearly reminded me of pieces by other designers, I quite liked this as it added a playful feel, and I don't think there's anything wrong with channelling something as long as you either do it better or put your own spin on it - which Moschino certainly did.


  1. The Moschino pieces actually look better here than on the catwalk, strangely enough. They're my most favourite brand so I was slightly let down with AW10.
    I did an internship there years ago when I was at uni and it was such a strange feeling seeing that red door that I used to open everyday for 2 months!

  2. Hi Nuvonova, Thanks very much for following and for leaving a comment! I love your profile pic :-) That's very cool that you did work experience at Moschino... Such a compliment that you think my pictures look better than the collection did on the catwalk... you've made my day!!!

  3. Oh glad to have made your day! Did you see photos of their AW10 show? It was those bloody cowboy hats that threw me off, but ironically enough, it is such a Moschino thing to do!.. you can't not like them!
