Now….we are not saying that this IS African print but it definitely looks inspired by it.
If Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Junya Watanabe et al can all create collections with African inspired prints (usually made in an Italian mill) then who is to say that Moschino has not done the same thing. African fashion and Africa itself has been such an influence on the arts and fashion industry of late that there seems to be one designer after another popping up with a similar look to their collections.
Do we like this collection you may ask? Well yes and no. Some pieces in regards to silhouette like the first piece is contemporary with the modern day cropped top tee style and the two piece bikini looking piece is such a cool print and very 50s in its cut. Some of the dress silhouettes on the online boutique are a little too boho for me. And i do like boho such as that done by Duro Olowu BUT these are … lacking a little. But for prints they are lovely, the polka dot background the pineapple design are cute and actually very Moschino who, especially for their Cheap and Chic range are known for creating the craziest often kitsch type prints.
So you have a look and see which pieces you like. Here are shots from their catwalk show.
Many pieces above can now be bought from their online boutique e-commerce store and details can be seen below.
