I was scrolling through Vogue online this morning when I came across Moschino’s Autumn/Winter 17 runway show and I just couldn’t believe my eyes. I literally had to do a double take when I saw the photo of a humble toilet roll with a chain and Moschino printed across the front labelled as ‘the new hit bag’!
WTF? I mean maybe I’m missing something here or maybe I’m just not cool enough to fully embrace and understand this trend but I just can’t see myself wearing a dress made of black bin bags or paper bags anytime soon (I’m totally uncool I know)
Can you just imagine turning up at a wedding or event wearing a hat that resembles a mop or a dress made of bubble wrap or a cuff that looks like a cut out can top?
Moschino is always a show where you can expect the unexpected. You can never be sure what exactly Jeremy Scott (creative director of Moschino) will produce but you know it will be big, colorful and a little weird. I mean I’m all for self expression and I can understand Jeremy Scott’s collection was suppose to be a critique on consumerism and waist but Jeremy Scott being Jeremy Scott took it all a little bit too literally in my view. Of course I think as a show it worked beautifully and I love the creativity and the clever execution of every single piece but personally I will not be rushing to add anything from the so called ‘Trash Chic’ trend to my wardrobe.
What do you think? Is this ‘Trash Chic’ trend something you could get on board with or do you think it’s totally over the top? Leave me a comment below. I would love to read your views on it.
