Smiley takes centre stage at London Collections: Men

Smiley led the way and continued its long standing tradition of ‘a Smile is always in style’ on the catwalk last night at the London Collections: Men’s fashion show, with the launch of the latest licensed collection from globally recognized fashion house Moschino by Jeremy Scott.

The Italian label made its London menswear debut on Monday 16th June 2014 and showcased the new SS15 collections in front of key fashionistas and celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan, Daisy Lowe and Pixie Lott, at London’s Lindley Hall.

Inspired by the brands history, exploiting designer logos (from Chanel to Louis Vuitton) and poking fun at high fashion and the status quo of consumerism, the Moschino collection elevated streetwear through humour and attitude. Smiley featured heavily across the collection, from colourful prints on sweaters and swimwear, to full-blown suits, shoes and accessories. Global flags were also used on pieces throughout the show, with the original Smiley transformed into an array of colours and nations.

Smiley’s presence on the catwalk once again highlighted the demand of happiness as a global trend, and ensured that the Smiley brand remains a must-have fashion trend today.
