Moschino Fall Winter 2021 Film: ‘Jungle Red’

MOSCHINO | FALL/WINTER 2021

Lumière! Musique! It’s time for an adventurous little voyage into fashion land.

This season starts with the concept of a show within a show within a show within a show, fueled by a dash of time-travel to the sophistication and grandeur of early Hollywood. It’s a mashup of Moschino-isms, stage-lit by a golden spotlight and dappled in escapist nostalgia.

The revered, ahead-of-its time 1939 George Cukor film The Women—in which no male character is seen or heard—influenced Scott. In particular, there is a Technicolor fashion show scene that struck a chord (here, too, this links to the meta observation of one vignette within another). The Women’s plot kicks off at an expensive Manhattan salon, where society ladies go to get the newest nail color: Jungle Red!

Presented through a short film named for that same varnish hue, Fall hosts a panoply of items and ideas, ranging from reworked pinstripe suiting to an iconic-ironic prairie dress all-over printed with physical cows on the prairie. Scott also takes such mundanities as potato sacks and cuts them into bell-sleeves, poufs and bows, imbuing irreverence and confidence into something otherwise deemed largely ignorable.

The agricultural then gives way to a full-on fauna moment, with a high-shine power-suit made of faux gold croc, complete with a tail. There are strapless sequined giraffe dresses and beaded leopard frocks, and a show-stopping mini with an embellished flamingo, its neck itself becoming the garment’s neckline.

From there, the trip continues: an outdoor series features full skirts, puff sleeves and a belted trench, along with an on-the-go kit holding everything you’d find on a lady’s vanity table. Brushes for blush, hair combs, tweezers and even a compact shaped in Moschino’s signature teddy bear, all included!

 

As we progress, the collection begins to boast ball gowns in voluminous silhouettes, appearing to be hand painted in post-Impressionist brushstrokes. At the conclusion, Scott enters the realm of 1940’s evening, with pale pink, fuchsia, black and gold-charmed dresses that seem as if they’re reincarnated off of a midcentury red carpet at Los Angeles’s Biltmore Hotel.

Business attire? Check! Ladies of leisure? Check! A night at the opera? Check! Hollywood heroines? Check!

Remember, though, no matter the scenario, you should always consider one thing: wearing Jungle Red!

There’s no denying that K-dramas have influenced fashion. People follow the shows and the stars to get inspired, and copy their dress sense. For those who want to look like their favourite K-drama character, here are some of our favourite looks so you too can feel like a star.
Tomorrow With You

The romantic show focuses on real-estate CEO Yoo So-Joon who travels through time to change his future. He ends up marrying a photographer, Song Ma-Rin. Due to the nature of her job and her having to move around a lot, her style is rather minimalistic. She focuses more on comfort than anything else. Her style mostly revolves around t-shirts and a nice jacket. Although the way Song Ma-Rin dresses is rather simple, she is able to accessorise to make sure her outfits stand out. Most of her outfits are plain in colour, but with a pop of red or pink, she is able to transform her look.

This K-drama is all about boss women; women who are working at the best web portal companies. They decide to put their careers ahead, but also look good doing it. Each scene is power suits upon power suits. One of the best outfits on the show is the hot pink Theory power suit worn by Cha Hyeon. She is able to express herself while looking like a boss as she walks into the office building.
Find Me in Your Memory

This show puts two opposites together. Lee Jung-Hoon is a news anchor who remembers every single moment he has lived. He forms a deep connection with model and actress Yeo Ha-jin who has lost her memory. The clothing that is worn in this K-drama is more elegant, as it plays to the personalities of each character. One of the best outfits worn by Ga-young is a yellow to orange ombre dress. It’s very elegant, and definitely works for her.
Law School

Like the title suggests, Law School is about law school. After an incident that occurs at the prestigious school, a law professor and his students fight for justice. The plot of the K-drama is enticing enough but the outfits worn by each character take it to another level. There were multiple all-black outfits, worn by Yang Jong-Hoon, the professor, but the one that is most memorable is the one worn by Kang Sol A. The structured black trench coat with white stitching adds a level of toughness to her demeanour.
It’s Okay Not to be Okay

This Korean Drama is all about the romance between an antisocial children’s book author and an employee in a psychiatric hospital. Although her counterpart spends most of his time in his scrubs, Go Moon Young never misses a beat with her outfits. One of the most memorable looks on the show is when she wore a beige dress with a brown belt around the waist. The length of the dress, the structure, and the way she carried it made it unforgettable for many viewers.
