Jeremy Scott’s vision for Moschino’s fall 2021 collection was expectedly a mixed bag — it’s a new theme for every show when it comes to this fashion house, but Scott was more inspired than ever, believing we are all hungry for something flavorful during the pandemic. Scott built on the excitement with a cast of major supermodels, including Hailey Bieber, who made her seasonal debut in the brand’s film “Jungle Red,” which was inspired by George Cukor’s 1939 film The Women. Hailey’s look comes toward the beginning of the lineup — she wears a pinstripe double-breasted skirt suit with towering platform oxfords, a miniature top hat, and a bold red lip to pay homage to glamorous Old Hollywood.
Fellow supermodel Miranda Kerr, who wears a very kitschy prairie dress, then sets the tone, paving the way for Scott’s potato-sack looks and patchwork coats. The “show within a show” is a film where Lily Aldridge, Stella Maxwell, Joan Smalls, Winnie Harlow, and Precious Lee — just wait until you see her metallic, flashy gown! — are also in attendance. As the range progresses, there are monochromatic moments with moto jackets and brushstroke, floor-sweeping gowns that look as though they are freshly painted canvases, and plenty of animal prints and tails (yes, you heard that right, actual tails).
Dita Von Teese shows off the finale look: a red, formfitting gown with a sweetheart neckline and train and a scattering of black hearts to accent her satin, elbow-length gloves. “Comfort schmomfort! What we need now more than ever is fantasy and glamour and things that make you feel wonderful, and I don’t think sweatpants do that,” Scott told Vogue of the production. Scroll through to see Hailey’s appearance, then appreciate the rest of the Moschino show, which certainly does not involve sweatpants.
