Brand of the Month: Boutique Moschino
The time has come once again for us to choose our brand of the month, and we’ve got another absolute cracker for you. Introducing Boutique Moschino, Moschino’s adorable little sister. We’ve been picking out our favourite pieces from the new season collection to share with you, so here goes.
All you label lovers out there will be familiar with Moschino, founded in 1988 by Franco Moschino. The Boutique Moschino clothing line was then created as a way to inject lots of extra fun and vibrancy into the lives of Moschino fans, and boy did they succeed.
Under the creative direction of respected designer, Jeremy Scott, the Boutique line combines the retro, contemporary and quirky eccentricity of the mainline collection, and pours it all into its skirts, tops, jackets and dresses. It more than deserves to be our brand of the month, and we know you’re going to love the latest additions for AW17.
Prepare to fall in love, because we’re about to show you some of the most incredible pieces from Boutique Moschino’s Autumn/Winter collection. We actually had to hold ourselves back from taking them all home for ourselves, and you’re about to see why.
We’ll start with our favourite piece of outerwear, as it is autumn after all.
Boutique Moschino doesn’t ever do things by halves, as this stunning coat demonstrates. Just look at that incredible shade of pink. This is a coat that replaces cold with bold, and it’ll certainly turn heads while you’re walking down the street. The designers haven’t held back on quality either, using a luxurious mix of super soft cashmere and wool to create this stunning winter warmer.
And once you’ve stopped staring at the amazing colour, you start to notice all the other incredible elements to this coat. We just love those chunky buttons with their adorable purple flowers adding an extra feminine touch and breaking up the solid pink. And even the lining is stunning, with it’s bold black background and bright floral pattern. You can even show off the lining (and why wouldn’t you?) by turning up the ends of the sleeves; this coat is just full of lovely surprises.
The coat works in perfect harmony with the rest of the AW17 collection, but you can just as easily wear it as a standalone statement piece with your regular wardrobe. Find it in your size here.
This is not your average little black dress. Boutique Moschino have taken a classic sleeveless LBD cut and added one very special statement element. That stunning floaty feather trim is what sold this dress to us, and we have a sneaking suspicion you’ll be just as taken with it as we are.
Those gorgeous marabou feathers and the understated neck tie detail make this dress ooze sixties glamour and stand out a mile from regular dress styles. We also love the way the elasticated waist creates a flattering shape and helps accentuate that flouncy skirt even more. And, if you wanted to dial up the feather fashion still further, you’ll be thrilled to know there is a matching jacket for this dress. Something this special doesn’t come along every day, so grab yours quick before they all fly away.
Oh wow, how special is this sweater? Contradicting traditional autumn and winter themes, Boutique Moschino has gone heavily floral with their new season collection, something usually reserved for spring and summer. But somehow they’ve made florals work perfectly for autumn, and adorned this simple chunky knit roll neck sweater with the most adorable assortment of crochet flowers.
Like gorgeous little beacons of colour, the flowers add depth and intrigue to this classic jumper style, perfect for brightening up those chilly autumn days. Create the ultimate casual outfit and conversation piece in one by pairing this jumper with your favourite black jeans and a pair of our designer ankle boots.
Sticking with Boutique Moschino’s autumnal florals, we also couldn’t resist this wonderful monochrome flower print shirt for our final pick of the month. As you’ll already know, we’re suckers for a lovely print here at Stanwells, so this absolute stunner of a shirt was guaranteed to find a place in our hearts.
We think this shirt would make the perfect autumn addition to your workwear wardrobe, with it’s classic cut, button through front and long sleeves creating a very smart silhouette for the office. We can see this working perfectly layered under a black blazer with smart trousers and leather ankle boots, with the bold print lifting the whole outfit by just the right amount.
Gorgeous, isn’t it? Find it in your size here, and take a look through our jackets and blazers collection if you want to create that lovely layered look we were talking about.
Wow, who knew a label could have so much personality? Hopefully you can see just from these four pieces exactly why the Boutique Moschino clothing collection made our Brand of the Month this month. And there’s loads more where they came from, too. Check out our full Boutique Moschino new season range, or browse our entire designer clothing collection here.
