Oh, baby! You can always count on Jeremy Scott’s Moschino for a strong theme and a spectacle of looks, and the Spring/Summer 2022 collection did not disappoint. “Ladies Who Lunch” may be the show’s title and storyline, but the pastel palette, stuffed animal accents, and heart-shaped accessories drew inspiration from a much younger crowd—toddlers, that is. From Gigi Hadid and Aaron Rose Philip to Imaan Hammam and Taylor Hill, models strutted the simplistic white runway in front of a flower wall backdrop with “Moschino” written in greenery. Apt for a baby shower luncheon, no? 

Matching sets were the name of the child-like game, as the show began with a plethora of pencil skirts and complimentary cropped suit jackets. In pale hues of purple and blue, there were a few striking standout items in neon green that played into a modern view of a lady who lunches. All of which, however, were donned with drawings of birds, lambs, and other baby motifs fit for a vintage nursery. With quilted detailing, scalloped edges, and silk and satin accents, the sets consistently tapped into a 1950’s suburban nostalgia.

Continuously pulling from another time, the hair up-dos were straight out of 1960’s Kennedy-era style. The gloves and petticoat inspired dresses also reinforced the retro aesthetic. Flash forward a few years, for the 1990’s and early 2000’s also made an appearance in the collection. Held at the prime fashion show spot of that decade, Bryant Park, the accessories kept this time period in mind. Block letters emulating nostalgic fridge magnets decorated purses and necklaces, along with pastel, plastic chains mimicking chunky toy jewelry.   

Ever the trendsetter, the designer modernized the looks with a bit of edge and sex appeal. Bra tops, hot shorts, and strapless ensembles were a fresh juxtaposition. Heart shaped sunglasses, feather accents, and leather biker-jacket purses toyed with the drama of a modern day ladies’ lunch.  

You can’t have a Moschino show and collection without a little outrage, and Scott surely delivered in the finale. The flamboyantly extravagant Moschino we know and love made quite a finishing splash, with show-stealing gowns integrating nursery book patterns and stuffed animals. One floor-length dress featured a large stuffed giraffe while another had exaggerated bunny ears hanging off the bodice. Accessories took the luncheon cake when model Taylor Hill wore a dangling baby mobile as a hat while new mom Gigi Hadid closed the show biting on a baby bottle—a ritual with which she is most likely very familiar.  

This was certainly a Moschino show for the ages, and that age is five years old and below.
