For Moschino’s Spring/Summer 2023 menswear showing at Milan Fashion Week Men’s, Creative Director Jeremy Scott developed an ode to the late artist Tony Viramontes. Blended with Moschino‘s penchant for the bright and bold, the special range serves as an homage to the iconic oeuvre and iconoclastic approach of the fashion illustrator and photographer.

Collaborating with Viramontes’ estate, Scott captured the motifs, faces and figures of the artist’s work to create garments marked with pop colors. More specifically works were drawn from Tony Viramontes’ contributions to The Face magazine and Buffalo styling movement of the eighties spearheaded by Ray Petri, an inspiration for Scott.

The balance of realism, grit and camp is expressed as abstract visages that cover signature Moschino shapes and silhouettes. The SS23 is built on the ranging striking squiggles and expressive strokes with plays of length and height on shorts, pleated skits, sarongs, pants and trousers. While an expert assemblage of tailoring was brought by the selection of blazers, suits and topcoats that made their way down the runway. With sportcoats, shorts and combat boots delivering the sense of pop associated with Jeremy Scott and Moschino.

“I wanted to shine a light on this brilliant creator,” said Jeremy Scott. “He may not be a household name, but Tony Viramontes is a force.”

Take a look at Moschino’s tribute to Tony Viramontes with its SS23 collection above.
