Funnily enough aside from showing on the same day at Milan Fashion Week (Friday 24 February) both fashion houses Moschino and Just Cavalli had a lot more in common than they would probably both like to admit.
For autumn/winter 2012/13 both designers showed an amazing array of bright colours and huge 1960s references in their collections.
Statement colour and sass was injected at Moschino whose cheeky showings of marabou feathers on dresses were contrasted against ski pants with cropped jackets alongside matching miniskirt suits in pillar box red, sapphire blue and mustard: all extremely well executed tailoring throughout. Sequinned evening dresses paraded at the end whilst a cute selection of monochrome pieces were also thrown in.
At Just Cavalli designer Roberto Cavalli’s collection used an assortment of muted camel and stone coloured tones and prints – synonymous with his younger diffusion line – as art deco drop waist style mini-dresses were paraded down the catwalk. As well as the tailoring on jackets there was also lame leggings and trousers complete with chiffon dresses and bobbled jumpers – all perfect for the younger trust fund generation.
