Pantsuit

House of Moschino, Design House (Italian)


The ‘brick wall’ suit is a classic example of the House of Moschino’s use of conceptual incongruity. This simple, meticulously constructed woman’s pantsuit is straightforward in style and silhouette, but the surface design, printed bricks, envelops the wearer like the façade of a building.
