Presented in Milan, Moschino’s Fall 2018 Menswear collection is a highly stylized mixture of heightened evening attire, militant measure, and a whole lot of leather and latex. With the first looks fresh on the runway, designer Jeremy Scott plunges the audience into a kinky black tie affair, transforming a classic tuxedo occasion into a sexy underworld of slink.

The attention to the body of each model, gender aside, is just as detailed as the previous, with models in corsets, sensual pumps, and latex face masks. Others were styled in speedos with a sensible winter coat over suspenders, as shoulder holsters latched onto tailored sleeves at the wrists to satisfy your deepest pinstripe pleasure. In closing, Scott cast legendary RuPaul's Drag Race winner Violet Chachki and paired her with another model donning the same attire, asking us to fall into the illusion of not only character persona but the illusion of fashion.

One label Moschino has no hunger or drive conforming to in their mission is ‘modesty’. Jeremy Scott has proven with every new Moschino collection that he insists on bending and breaking the rules, and ultimately allowing his reputation to precede him. Thus is the continuing narrative of Mr. Scott’s reign — one full of skin, symmetry, and endless sums of layered kink.
