BRAND CONTROL; never forget these words. Remember what happened to Moschino, Iceberg, Coogi, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Gucci, Burberry, Armani and Cristal in the ’90s? Shit, only a few of the aforementioned ever really recovered from that debacle. And no one wants to be the posterboy of a racial debate with the hip hop community, that’s for sure. So, keep it simple: avoid making a quick dollar by not selling out to trashbags and keep your integrity, please.
The fall 2012 Moschino menswear show was an interesting mix and I believe it had something for everyman.The brick wall suit is the one I would chose to wear, And the one I think would make Franco Mochisno proud if he were still alive. Franco always had a sense of humor in his designs and wasn’t a particular fan of the fashion industry. Pairing such a fun interesting patterned suit with a classic bowler hat is brilliant,The fingerless wool gloves are also a nice accessory adding to the cool vibe. I could easily imagine Jack White of The White Stripes wearing this suit.
For those instances when you feel like absolutely scaring the shit out of someone in a subtly refreshing way. Now that’s camouflage.
When I was a teenage guido growing up on Staten Island, I thought Moschino was the apex of men’s fashion. I mean, all Philly hos, dough and Moschino—nothing could even touch that in my mind.
Some of my Moschino gear included a tee shirt with a condom wrapper lamented on the chest with the following written underneath it: “HOT NIGHT” and a pair of jeans with a large peace sign on the pocket.
For as trashy and pathetic some of those items were, none of them even came close to the vomit that’s growing on this dude’s head and chest.
