The Moschino spring 2015 just came down the runway in Milan and let me tell you—it was all about Barbie (she’s having a mega moment right now!).
Models had seriously voluminous wigs (platinum blond if it worked) and the entire first half of the show was all bubblegum pink. There were all kinds of retro references, too, from the chain belts to the prim skirt suits, and, of course, plenty of whacky moments. Some of my favorites? The roller-skating model who did a little spin at the end of the catwalk and a white terry cloth dress that made the model look like she’d just stepped out of the shower.
The Barbie Barbies we spotted? Work-Out Barbie (with sweatsuit and hand weights) Western Barbie, and basically every band member from Barbie and the Rockers. Whichever Barbies were ready to party in bold ’80s party frocks and shop Rodeo Drive were also well represented.
There was a flip phone and boom box purse, both items I remember some of my ’90s dolls having, and one model with a roller suitcase and bag who looked completely ready to move into her Malibu Dream House. Oversized bags and a bra top that actually looked like a clip-on plastic piece also cemented the doll moment.
Last but not least, we can’t forget our other favorite lady in pink who must’ve been an inspiration, too.
