Moschino F/W 2011:Military meets Celine meets Female-Bond-Villain. Much Fun Ensues.

You’d do well to bring out the marching band this Fall as Moschino embraces masculine militaria – with a curve-ball of a twist of course.

Think sharp suited savoir faire and embrace immaculately tailored tailcoats, rip-roaring riding jackets and palazzo pants (in gold lame no less) as Jardini re-imagined the dress uniform for the modern Moschino madam. Oh – and lets not forget the bizarre-meets-kitsch bazaaresque accoutrements: golden teddy bears, velvet bows and – yes – that stuffed-chicken hat.

 

Sassy Shades: Summer’s must-have style-staple

Moschino

Lets face it, walk of shame or no walk of shame sunglasses are the perennial morning-after-the-night-before style superhero; a sure-fire way to lift those alcohol-fogged spirits (and hide the dreaded ‘didn’t quite get my 8-hours’ eye-baggage).

Whether you have a hankering for some fifties-starlet glamour, want to relive nineties grunge or are searching for an investment classic, this summer offers more choice than you can shake a stick at, so shelve those excuses – it’s all-aboard for sunny-town and boy does it look hot.

As a certifiable retro-holic my money would be on 50’s-inspired wings and cats-eye frames as worn by Olivia Palermo, Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Richie et al…sweeter than cherry pie and just a little bit sexy…

FYI! Cats-eye sunnies were also all over the fall runways (see Prada for a master-class in quirky panache)…this fabulous pair from Norma Kamali takes super-chic to the max – timeless with a dash of kooky-flair – a definite wish list contender.

Of course, for classic kitsch it’s all about heart-frames…cute, fun and very Lolita…
