Moschino, a year into its creative direction under wacky Jeremy Scott, showed a Barbie-themed spring collection in Milan yesterday, with a capsule collection of runway items available for purchase now. The brand did this last season as well with their fast food-themed wares (the origin point for all of those rubberized French fry phone cases).
Among the items available today are a $2,675 cropped leather jacket, a $250 T-shirt that says "It's very expensive being Moschino," and an $85 iPhone 5 case. Today is also the day a little thing called the iPhone 6 hits consumer hands—whoops.
Nordstrom has accessories from the runway capsule in stores today, and will sell select items online come Sunday. Fashionista notes that Alchemist, Hirshleifer's, Net-a-Porter, Opening Ceremony, Saks, Rent the Runway, and Shopbop will also carry the capsule, adding that the retailers signed up as stockists sight unseen. That's power to Jeremy Scott's loud vision for Moschino, and prowess to filter the hot pink, logo-centric goods beyond the catwalk of Milan and straight to the mall.
