Early Moschino pieces designed by Franco Moschino himself – often referred to as Italian fashion's "enfant terrible" – within the short period when he launched the House of Moschino in 1983 until he passed away in 1994 are very sought after and highly collectible. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.
These extremely rare to find trousers featuring Roy Lichtenstein's pop art painting "Girl with Hair Ribbon" from 1965 are part of perhaps one of the most iconic of all the Moschino collections, and most certainly the one that is instantly recognizable, the Spring/Summer 1991 collection. They capture the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand. Versions of this piece are held at The Museum at FIT in NYC and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Crafted in Italy, the fluid design has a high-rise banded waist that falls into a wide leg.
