To the delight of fashion fans around the world, yesterday Moschino unveiled their latest collection at Milan Fashion Week.
Dubbed “garbage couture for a garbage world” by New York Magazine, the Italian fashion house’s AW17 collection – modelled by the Hadids and Kendall Jenner — featured bin bags, shopping bags, bubble wrap and duct tape.
Even though it looks like creative director Jeremy Scott — wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed: couture is an attitude — drew inspiration from the County Press’ stationery cupboard, he said the collection had been inspired by the idea of a girl losing everything and having to make her own clothes.
So, as most people can’t afford £600 for a dress which looks like a paper bag, the Yoppul fashion team decided to recreate three of the haute couture looks for a quirky IW twist — at the mere expense of a vest and leggings and from H&M, a few things from Poundland, and some random stuff we found lying around the workplace.
Because, if I lost everything and had to fashion my own clothes, this is definitely what I’d look like:
Bubble wrap – £1
Black bin bags – £1
Mini wheelie bin – £1
Cardboard boxes and envelopes – expenses
After all, couture is an attitude — right?
