Whoever said New York lost its luster clearly hadn't visited Jeremy Scott’s New York. And as part of Scott’s vision for Pre-Fall 2020, Moschino held its very first NYC show at the New York Transit Museum. Show-goers raced through Monday night’s rain to file underground to the decommissioned subway station, where they were seated throughout various subway cars.

The energy was established early on when Imaan Hammam opened the show wearing a grey sweatsuit, hiking boots, a fur stole and layers of oversized gold chains. A look (and walk!) that commands attention. The collection offered a cinematic trip to a bygone era of New York, illustrating flashes of an East Village leather bar and Madison Avenue sophisticates. However, the nostalgic energy was made new with inventive touches like an oversized BIC lighter handbag on Remington Williams and a denim-and-tweed hybrid on Grace Elizabeth. Models’ faces and necks were splashed with tattoos by JonBoy, and as the show rolled on, Kacey Musgraves, Kim Petras, Julia Fox and Madeline Paetsch captured supersized, meme-friendly puffers and accessories. Musgraves took to Instagram stories to share a video of a gigantic red backpack writing, “Finally, a bag big enough for all my issues.”

Michel Gaubert crafted a soundtrack to lift the Monday blues, with Char Defrancesco and Petras singing along to Blueface’s “Thotiana”. And just like that, the finale erupted with subway performers leaping through cars.

Following the show, the Moschino train traveled around the corner to Sal’s Pizzeria where the likes of Adesuwa Aighewi, Patti Wilson, and Stella Maxwell enjoyed one of Brooklyn’s finest slices.
