SINGAPORE (Dec 10): The circus is where heart-stopping acts such as the flying trapeze and acrobats, along with clowns, give the crowd an amazing show to remember. Inspired by that, Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott surprised guests at its latest fashion show with some memorable fashion.

Among the show-stopping designs were peony-pink ruched tulle dresses with giant multi- coloured daisy appliques, harlequin brocade suits, silk georgette gowns with floral appliques, round paillettes mirrors dotting a floor-length black gown, a superhero bodysuit beneath a red satin cape and a lion tamer tuxedo in a beaded sequin leopard pattern.

On a darker side, Scott added a dove-covered bodysuit with gold embroidery shaped in the outline of a skeleton, while blood-red beaded embroidery over a nude tulle gown created a visually “slashed” and “torn” illusion beneath an operatic ruched tulle overcoat.

The caption for our story “Luxury of Space” (Issue 859, Dec 3) should have said that the Chiva-Som resort in Hua Hin is a foretaste of the brand’s upcoming resort in Bintan, and not as published.
