Moschino Brings Picasso’s Masterpieces to Life at Milan Fashion Week
From harlequin jumpsuits to painterly Cubist dresses, Jeremy Scott translated themes from Picasso’s oeuvre into wearable works of art
Moschino’s creative director, Jeremy Scott, regularly turns the catwalk into a theatrical display with his avant-garde designs during Milan fashion week. Previous collections sought influence from unique sources, like the long-running game show The Price Is Right, complete with TV-dinner dresses, and a fashion designer’s workroom with scribbled designs that appeared as if they came right out of a sketchbook.
This week, Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection took on the realm of fine art. Paying homage to Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, Scott created looks inspired by the artist’s heritage as well as some of his most iconic works, including his harlequin paintings, Guitar (1914), Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Girl Before a Mirror (1932). Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, and Kaia Gerber walked the runway wearing oversize guitars and harlequin one-pieces or literally framed like Cubist paintings.
