Fabulous late 1980s to early 1990s Moschino Jeans mini skirt, complete with colourful patchwork lame detail. It is cut in a classic A line shape, with a simple front zip and button closure. The skirt features geometric patterns in metallic shades of red, pink, blue, green, yellow, gold and brown, with a stripe design on one side and an Aztec like one on the other. With 2 cutaway side pockets, the right hand side also has an additional smaller patch pocket with a discrete Moschino label in the Italian tricolore colours. Fully lined in a golden satin-feel acetate.

Franco Moschino established Moschino Jeans for women in 1986, showing his first collection that same year. The line focused on high quality, well constructed denim garments, as evidenced by this skirt, created just a few years after the first launch. The skirt is in wonderful vintage condition with no noticeable stains or flaws and a best fit for size UK 6-8 or US 2-4. Our model (5ft 4in / 163cm) is a UK 6-8 and this fit her well. 

Note on Designer:

Born in Abbiategrasso, Italy in 1950, Franco Moschino studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti, Milan, where he supplemented his income with work as a fashion illustrator. In 1971, he began work as an illustrator for Italian designer Gianni Versace. Following his time at Versace, Moschino went on to work for the fashion house Cadette in 1977 alongside Karl Lagerfeld. In 1983, Moschino launched Moschino Couture and found enormous success before his untimely death in 1994. He was succeeded by his long time collaborator, Rossella Jardini, and then Jeremy Scott in 2013. Scott has continued the fashion house's similarly irreverent approach to whimsical design and surrealism. Long live Moschino!
