Surrealism: Now and Then

So, I know we were all wooed by those McDonald’s inspired Moschino pieces, and then later, by those supermarket inspired handbags (lait de coco, anyone?), but after doing my research I found that maybe such quirky pieces aren’t so original after all…
In the 1940’s designers, like Anne Marie de Paris, took the surrealist movement to the next level by creating witty and playful items inspired by unusual objects that had never been seen before. Sometimes we can get so stuck in the future when it comes to fashion, but it’s always good to know about the history of trends,too. Anyway, I thought I’d share some of these true vintage pieces with you guys, I know I was inspired, so enjoy!

Moschino hits Milan Street Style

Well that didn’t take long did it? I knew the McDonald’s inspired accessories from Moschino’s most recent show would make for great street style, but I didn’t expect to see it quite so soon! Here are some of the looks that have been seen in Milan only a few days after that Moschino show that everyone is talking about.

Moschino at MFW

Heavily influenced by McDonalds, Spongebob Squarepants, crisps and chocolate wrappers, it is safe to say that Moschino definitely put themselves back on the fashion map yesterday after Jeremy Scott debuted his first collection for the brand. I have never been so split over how I feel about a collection before, but what I do know is that I’m excited to see what Jeremy Scott will bring us next, surely it can only get more eccentric?

Whether you love or hate this collection, there is no question that it brings quirkiness from Moschino at it’s best; fun, vibrant and unexpected!
