Could Jeremy Scott’s Latest Moschino Show Be Barbie Themed?
Landing at Milan Fashion Week on September 18th, Jeremy’s thinking pink for SS15…

“Are you ready to think pink?” screams the banner atop Moschino’s Twitter page, a tweet telling us to save the date for Jeremy Scott’s latest show for the label, on September 18th. There’s definitely more than a sniff of Mattel plastic about the whole thing.
Over on the Moschino website, a short promo video tells us to ‘Shop The Dream’, again giving connotations of Barbie and indeed confirming that certain products will be available to buy immediately after the show.
With Jeremy’s McDonald’s themed Moschino collection of AW14 having gone down a storm, from the fries phone covers to the juice cup handbags, it would make sense for him to continue down the commercial Americana road. After McDonald’s and Mickey Mouse, Barbie is pretty much the biggest American icon ever, not to mention the fact that Mattel is collaborating with EVERYONE this season.
Forever 21 have just launched their Barbie Loves Forever 21 collection, Wildfox’s Welcome To The Dreamhouse line is on its way and Moschino’s diffusion line Cheap & Chic even dabbled with Miami Barbie for SS14.
So, in short, we think Jeremy Scott’s SS15 Moschino collection might just be plastic fantastic.
