WE INTERRUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING FOR THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE!

Apparently the brand has 2 different designers since there is a portion, which albeit with some small changes, might be considered commercially viable if not quite pretty. Of course, the changes involved would be to remove any of the sight gags and gimmicks heavily leaned upon by Mr. Scott. The bigger problem is that Franco was an original and his humor can’t be mimicked or captured forever. Franco had an original tongue in cheek sense of humor combined with kitsch combined with genuine talent. Mr. Scott on the other hand does not possess all of these traits… or at least they have not been exposed yet.

The supposed humor and kitsch factor is wearing thin as the silly supposedly designs; the street wise over patterning that was what Mr. Scott did before hitching his wagon to Moschino is also something that is wearing even thinner. The Moschino apparel customer ... if there really is one ... must either be of Asian descent or possibly just a women who sees her life to be lived as a cartoon character rather than a woman who lives in reality.

 Cardboard boxes and d shipping labels and materials ...  frankly it’s looking forced ... trash bags, bubble wrap, duct tape,   Persian rug dresses, candelabras on the head or trashcan hats ... it’s all been done and it was really only funny the first time .. Time to take the brand to the next level ... you might want to ask yourself... what might that be?
