As soon as I heard about it, I loved it: Moschino's Barbie inspired spring/summer 2015 collection!
The catwalk was full of real-life Barbie dolls with their spectacular outfits and there was no doubt what the key words were: the amount of plastic and bubble-gum pink was dizzying. Plastic earrings, bags, belts... and where there weren't plastic, there were patent leather! In addition to the one of the top fashion colors of the fall/winter season, "Barbie" pink, the show had plenty of baby blue, light yellow and of course a bit of gold and glitter here and there. The models were totally Barbie lookalikes with their long legs and platinum blonde hair. My favorite was the one that roller skated trough the catwalk!
Accessories were all exaggerated: Earrings and chain necklaces were huge, bags were everything from a pink carry-on luggage to a see-through purse and there were even dumbbells (pink, obviously) to spice up the mood. And what would Barbie be without her baby pink lips?
The fashion show closed with the over-the-top cocktail and evening gowns, which had 80's beat on them: bright colors, tons of volume and fancy details. Some of them had giant sequins on them!
MTV discovered that the looks didn't just look like real Barbies, some of them were actually based on Barbie dolls they had found on eBay. In fact, Mochino created it's own Barbie, which was a mini-sized copy of the opening look!
The eye pleasing fashion show definitely earned it place on my top 5 list of high fashion shows! Here comes the most hair-raising looks:
