Space Jam, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Salt-N-Pepa: Spotting the ’90s References at Moschino’s Runway Show

Last season may have been all about Barbie’s World, but at the latest Moschino runway show, we’re time-traveling back to the ’90s, specifically the heyday of hip-hop. Here, side-by-side comparisons of looks from the show and their ’90s references.

Other references we spotted: Graffiti (in general), slip dresses, Clueless-style teddy bear backpacks, Parasuco-like jeans, and ankle-boot sneakers!

It’s an interesting time for Scott to choose the ’90s and hip-hop as the theme of his collection: Debates over cultural appropriation have been rising at every turn (see DKNY’s spring 2015 collection, which drew criticism on social media for featuring baby hair and zig-zag hair parts, and Rodarte’s 2014 collection with Chola-inspired styling). But then again, when has Scott been one not to take a risk? After all, with leaning on a culture for inspiration can come many lost-in-translation moments.

We reached out to the brand for comment but as of press time had heard nothing. We’ll keep you posted on what the brand has to say!
