the Zodiac Dresser, Designer Edition: Aries by Moschino

This year, I'm taking a different approach to my Zodiac Dresser series and rather than create my own outfits inspired by each sign, I'm relating each sign to a different designer. 

Bold, brash, sporty and youthful, Aries is well represented by Moschino F/W 2015.  (photos from www.style.com)

Aries is not a subtle sign but loud, daring and completely enthused. The youngest sign in the zodiac, Aries loves chasing after novelty. Similarly, Moschino's references to 90s pop culture are not only obvious, but also incredibly trendy. 

The extremely active, sporty nature of this fire sign is also paralleled by this collection. Much of it clearly borrows sports-wear fabrics and silhouettes such as the jersey above or sweatpants below. 

Moschino's signature color is bright, primary red, just like the color associated with the fiery Aries. 

As essentially the baby of the zodiac, Aries is well-suited to Moschino's youthful aesthetic with its penchant for simple silhouettes, cartoon imagery and bright colors.

Aries also loves to buck convention and despises routine and formality. Much like Bugs Bunny, this sign gets a thrill from subverting or ignoring societal norms. The outfit above takes the standard skirt-suit form but instead of using traditional formal fabrics and accessories, it uses sweatpants material and sneakers. The resulting look, though casual, remains commanding and innovative. 

Like this overstated outfit, Aries likes to get their point across very forcefully if need be. So in case you didn't get it, not just the outfit above but every garment in it exclaims "TEDDY BEAR! TEDDY BEAR! TEDDY BEAR!". Like I said before, Aries is not subtle; in fact, this may be the least subtle sign of the entire zodiac. 

What are your reactions to the Moschino F/W 15 collection? If you could, would you wear any of these looks or pieces? I personally would love the Looney Toons pieces since I grew up watching those and still just love cartoons as well as sporty clothes. Oh, and did I mention I myself am an Aries? 


Oh, and how do longtime readers feel about this new format for this series? Do be sure and check out my Instagram where from time to time I may post an outfit and describe it as "very this-or-that sign".
