Ok so I am soooo excited to write this post!
If any of you follow fashion blogs, magazines or anything fashion related you would know that right now MOSCHINO belts are all the buzz. The MOSCHINO block letter belt buckle has literally become a style blogger sensation! The belt is no longer manufactured because it is from the 80s so only vintage one's are available (that's if you can get your hands on one). But luckily, I just bought one yesterday and I couldn't be happier. Though it came with a bit of a price tag considering it is a belt, it was totally worth it because I will have this forever. It is one of a kind.
Here is a brief history:
"Franco Moschino was a huge advocate of social awareness and playing against the fashion system in the 80s and early 90s. Many of his colourful, surreal designs included ironic statements about cost and his ads poked fun at the barriers of the fashion world."(Refinery 29)
What's ironic is that in a time where fashion bloggers have become such an integral part of the fashion world, stirring up controversy with traditional fashion media outlets, it seems almost appropriate that the belt has re-surfaced. Either way, whether it's popularity is because of the tough chic image or about the referencing of the history of the brand it looks good either way!
