From human bouquets to McDonald’s merchandise to actual garbage and beyond, Moschino’s Jeremy Scott knows how to commit to a theme when it comes to his runway shows. Following last season’s maximal garden-inspired collection, the Italian fashion house looked to a different source of inspiration for its Fall 2018 show today: the women of the 1960s. Namely, Jackie Kennedy.
In a season full of ’80s-inspired collections, Moschino instead went full-on ’60s with a colorful runway that reimagined Jackie Kennedy’s signature look for 2018. Featuring oranges, purples, and yellows, the bright lineup of 62 looks recreated the late First Lady’s iconic tweed skirt suit and pillbox hat.
The skirt suits, hats, and tights weren’t the only colorful things to hit the runway though. A few of the models sported head-to-toe body paint in bright colors of neon yellow, blue, and lime green—making for an alien-like take on Jackie O’s classic style.
Kaia Gerber, Joan Smalls, Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid were amongst those who walked the show, each sporting a different rendition of Jackie Kennedy’s look. Kaia hit the runway in a bright orange skirt suit, pillbox hat and matching pumps.
Bella wore a bright purple iteration of the look with a colorful patterned pillbox hat.
The eldest Hadid, meanwhile, wore an orange coat featuring patent leather trim and a matching hat.
Channeling a different side of the ’60s woman, Joan Smalls wore a little black dress, leather gloves, and black sunglasses.
The final 15 looks of the show departed from the skirt suit look and instead, entered into evening wear territory. Featuring dazzling crystal-embellishments, silky draping, and striking colors, the pieces were a modern-day take on ’60s evening attire—all while keeping the elegant bouffant hairstyle in check.
