Designer Franco Moschino Italian

Not on view

Reverting purposefully to the principles of collage adaption, Moschino employed sex ads in a menswear ensemble. The deliberate violation of the segregation of advertising and clothing plays with the modern understanding that dress solicits social acceptance and even sexuality. A shirt and pants with sex ads proclaim their own advertising.
