At the moment, there are few things that can surprise us when it comes to fashion shows. Jeremy Scott, the creative director at Moschino, is the best example regarding this issue. If you have followed the New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, you had the opportunity to see the new pill-themed collection from Moschino.
The models were showing drug-themed accessories. Think of having a handbag that is similar to a prescription bottle, with the warning label included. How would you feel about wearing a foil pill packet clutch? If you find these accessories interesting, you should pay more attention to the new collection from Moschino.
Even though Jeremy Scott is popular for his unusual collections, some would say this one was pushed too far. There are a lot of people against drugs or who used to be drug addicted that do not agree with this campaign. They say drugs should not be promoted, especially by such a popular fashion house. There were so many people who criticised the collection, that the Nordstrom store decided to recall the handbags.
People are asking the company to think about all the families who lost a loved one due to drug use. Moschino was also accused of not having the moral responsibility in the products they are promoting for their customers. While some are trying not to consume drugs anymore, Moschino seems to have no problem is showing accessories inspired by pills.
The fashion house also has pill pocket phone cases, clothes or backpacks. Even though Nordstrom decided to pull the collection, there are still other places to buy it. You can see the new collection if you go to Harrods or Browns. We do not expect Moschino to recall its products, especially because its collections have always been unusual.
Moschino is one of the most famous companies in the fashion business. It appeared in 1983 when Franco Moschino decided to build a fashion brand. They received a lot of negative opinions due to their unusual campaigns. However, this only helped them get more customers.
Jeremy Scott became creative director in 2014. He is one of the most popular fashion designers and his collections were always surprising for the fashion world. What do you think about the new pill-themed collection? Should they remove it from the stores or not?
