I'll admit to loving things just because they look good. Apparently, so does Moschino.

What's interesting about these windows is that a point of visual interest is always needed when you look at something two-dimensional. (Yes, I would consider window displays very much two-dimensional, in essence, since they are technically non-interactive when viewed from the outside, and since composition is such a huge factor in their creation.) For example, when you have enough fuschia punch, pearly baubles, and floral print chiffon ruffles, the mannequins can stand well alone --- maybe toss a couple patent leather handbags on the side for maximum product placement. But, when you decide to showcase something as basic as a black gown, you're going to need a 10 Ft sunburst multi-panel mosaic glass mirror with a face on it, okay?
