I have a bit of a burger / Americana obsession at the moment. It started about ten years ago and since then I have dipped in and out of it, depending on my mood. It first started when I loved the band, Gravy Train!! Remember them? Hunx, Punx, Drunx and Chunx singing electro-pop-punk songs about burgers, sex and parties. Pretty awesome! It wasn’t very easy to find burger themed items back then, but I hunted down some pretty cool things; burger badges, a telephone, CD holder, purses and probably some other bits and bobs. I can’t really remember to be honest! It wasn’t a motif that you often saw on the high street, so you often had to search high and low for these things in vintage stores and alternative shops.
Over the years I amassed some pretty cool fast food / candy / fruit / general food themed items. From jewellery to scarves, dresses to home-wears. When I see something foodie and fun, I generally want to buy it!
Jeremy Scott X Moschino
Last season Jeremy Scott became the creative director of Moschino. I have loved Moschino for a good long time now, I can remember seeing the iconic letter belts as a child in the late 80’s/early 90’s and thinking they were awesome. For decades, they have been making super fun designer clothing. I have a lot of vintage Moschino in my wardrobe and I would happily add many more pieces to the collection. When Jeremy Scott became the head of Moschino I knew it was bound to be pretty cool. He has been making his own line for years and he has done some amazing collabs with Adidas and Longchamp. I still wish I had bought the telephone print Longchamp bag and his hot dog prints was to die for! His first collection for Moschino was partly themed around Mcdonalds and so my food / fashion obsession raised it’s bingo-winged arm again. The golden arches have never looked so cool and I want burgers and fries with every outfit! He designed playful versions of the Mcdonald’s uniforms and cool jumpers and tee shirts with the classic ‘M’ logo on. So good!
A couple of weeks ago, the Christmas / January sales started as as soon as the prices dropped (slightly), I snapped up a couple of pieces from the Moschino collection! A few days later when I unwrapped the package, I suddenly realised the last few purchases I have made have been junk food and Americana themed. I thought I would gather them up and show them to you all, you know… just for fun!
This is just the start
Perhaps next week I will show some other food themed fashion items I have bought recently, this is only a small part of it!
