A grown-up, yet still boyish, attitude resonates in the Moschino Menswear Pre-Fall 2024 collection, with mixed media looks toying with textural and color contrasts, eveningwear details brought to unusual territory and tailoring reimagined for the grown-up, street-loving generation.

Signature motifs including hearts and polka dots are reinvented on bib shirt-like ruffled shirts and short shorts styled as briefs peeking from under sweatpants, the latter coming with built-in conservative striped cotton undies. Magnified polka dots and hearts deck evening suits creating chiaroscuro effects.

Toying with mixed media and layering tricks, cropped hooded sweaters have built-in striped shirts, ditto for trompe l’oeil tailored pants with incorporated briefs and T-shirt and shirt combos, while blazers feature rib-knit insets mid-way through the arms or on the collar and leather biker jackets have knitted front panels.

The recurring offbeat touches become anchoring playful tools to deceive the eyes. Ties are cropped and slightly oversize, knit cummerbunds become belly warmers, the perfecto biker jacket turns into a briefcase, the tiny embroidered hearts, a house signature, migrate from shirts to the iconic Moschino belt.

Fiery red security tags are pins scattered on tailored power-shouldered overcoats and parka jackets, for a fresh-spinned and head-spinning Moschino gimmick.
