June 12, 2012 New York
Moschino has entered the packed sporty-couture arena with its new Resort lineup. Judging by the stamina this trend has shown over the past year, we'd say it isn't too late to join the race. Rossella Jardini came across a high-tech mesh intended for the bucket seats in race cars and whipped the house's signature little jackets up with the pro-grade stuff. (We wouldn't be surprised to see designers using NASA space suit material soon.) The stretchy trench and cropped zip cape, in particular, complemented electric poppy floral prints found on silk shift dresses and a long crepe de chine jumpsuit. Jardini also riffed on her folksy Fall collection here. She was ahead of the curve on peasant dressing—it's really taken off this Resort season—so the costumelike black skirts and frocks trimmed with white ruffles and whipstitching felt particularly relevant.
