Moschino SS15 - I'm a Barbie Girl | Get The Look


If you haven't heard about Moschino's SS15 collection yet, then you must have been living under a rock - everybody's talking about it, and it's easy to see why. Back in February, Jeremy Scott showcased his fast food affair with a McDonald's inspired collection for AW14, and this season he has gone all-out Barbie on us! The Milan catwalk show kick-started with the guests being gifted a boxed Moschino Barbie doll followed by Aqua's 90's "Barbie girl" hit blaring out ... obviously.
The collection consisted of bubblegum pink leather biker jackets and skirts, abstract retro prints and Barbie-style Moschino branding emblazoned on pink jumpers and sweatpants. Accessories were reminiscent of 90's kitsch (bubblebags helloooo!), and made the models look like you could just buy them, in a box, straight off the shelves!
Every Barbie imaginable was portrayed, from cowgirl Barbie, rollerskating Barbie (which saw model Charlotte free skating down the catwalk), Tourist Barbie, Sporty Barbie, to full
on glamour-puss Barbie in a show stopping finale piece that would have made Ken feel rather under-dressed!

Despite the fact that I am not an overly girly girl, I absolutely adore this collection. It threw me straight back to my childhood, to the days where I would sit for hours playing with my Barbie dolls. I had the Barbie caravan, cafe, jeep, swimming pool... oh and Dog Walker Barbie - anyone remember her?! God she has it all doesn't she?! It's no doubt that now the high street is going to go Barbie crazy, thanks to Jeremy Scott, so I have created a little "Get the look" collection... so that we can all have a little bubblegum pink candy-ness in our wardrobes!
