Founded by Franco Moschino in 1983, the Moschino brand would help to define over-the-top 1980s Italian fashion. Having been a collaborator of Gianni Versace in the 1970s, followed by a few years as the designer of Cadette, Moschino was well prepared to offer Italians just what they were looking for. The brand is known for its ostentatious design as well as on-the-nose sense of humor, often making comedic statements or obvious ripoffs and references through its designs. After making a big breakthrough with his inaugural women’s collection, Moschino went on to launch its first men’s collection in 1984, the Moschino Jeans line in 1986 and a fragrance line in 1987. Today, the brand is best known for its bold graphics, colors and slogans. The brand’s maximalist approach has garnered a cult following for reference-riddled designs, alongside its collaborations with H&M—all thanks to its current creative director, Jeremy Scott.
