Moschino's Looney Tunes- Inspired AW15 Collection

Filled to the brim with kooky yet relatable style, Moschino's AW15 collection has all the sass that their previous McDonald's and Barbie creations had. Under fashion legend Jeremy Scott, the pieces fused high fashion with street chic resulting in coveted designs that are undeniably Moschino.

Pop of Primary
Kicking off the show, pops of primary colour cover thick, padded puffer jackets, quilted two-pieces and bucket hats, all trimmed with the iconic logo.  

Looney Tunes
Bringing popular culture into the mix once again, Moschino take your favourite cartoon crazies and stamp them on over-sized sweaters with a hip-hop twist. From Bugs Bunny to Tweetie Pie, the Looney Tunes theme is prominant throughout the collection, printed on leather jackets, oversized accessories and on baseball-esque pieces for a touch of sports luxe. 

Decorated Denim
Hyper-real Americana meets classic denim with their collection of pieces that seem to draw inspiration from '80s hip hop. Punchy patches of gold mingle with wash-out denim, chain prints are mingled with chunky acessories as pockets are turned inside out and shirts made into skirts. 

Urban Jungle
Exquisite prom dresses are given an urban edge as floor-length gowns are sprayed with graffitti prints, complete with spray can clutch bags for true, street chic.

My Little Box Review January 2015

I've always been slightly skeptical about monthly box subscriptions, but when I began receiving 'My Little Box', I thought I had finally found one to prove me wrong.

Alas, after three months I have found myself cancelling my subscription after a number of disappointments. December's box was extremely underwhelming- gift wrapping was displayed with rather dull gift tags, all tied together with sub-standard string and advice on a present for a friend was 'a ____ months supply of My Little Boxes' *yawn*.

January's box seemed the strongest to me (at the time). I received the 'energy' themed package and despite it's lack of originality, I was pleased with it's contents.

Fitting in with the 'new year, new you' theme, the box came with a cute calendar, a motivational poster, a gym bag and several beauty products.

Although I packed the calendar straight in my bag to pin up with work, I was more excited about using the gym bag for weekends away (as oppose to exercise). Bunging some of my clothes in my shiny new bag, I set off on the train but to my dismay, the zip broke only half an hour into me having used it. Considering there were only light clothes and I did not force the zip, I was very disappointed.

The beauty products slightly uplifted the aura of the box, with rich red Nailsinc polish, as well as Talika's photo-hydra day cream- pleasant smelling, if a little greasy. The highlight of the products was My Little Beauty's energising mist, supposedly meant to  refresh the face- it might have felt more like I was spraying Febreze in my face, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

What did you think of this month's box? Do you have any other boxes you can recommend?
