The ever-changing gallery-like display window at Moschino on West 14th Street has evolved from the mirrored glamor of Fashion Week to a decidedly more austere aesthetic. In fact, it's positively first lady-ish.
It's not secret that Michelle Obama's closet is peppered with Moschino tags, so is the brand calling out to her here? Perhaps, but it could just as easily be Jackie Kennedy they're evoking. On the other hand, the lace sculptures of a Corgi, a fox and a rabbit may suggest Queen Elizabeth II.
Whoever the lace is supposed to represent, we love the concept. Even if it's directly contrasted by the punk trompe l'eoil zippered fly on the Moschino men's denim in the next window.
