I feel like I’m having a dream. A horrible, horrible dream where I’m stuck in the 1990s. There are many things about the 1990s that I would like to forget… bike shorts, leotards, overalls, and denim jackets. Scared yet? As scary as these things are, they are not as scary as the Hip-Hop Looney Tunes stuff. Don’t remember that? In the mid-1990s, someone decided that the Looney Tunes characters needed a makeover to make them look cooler. Bugs Bunny and his friends were shown decked out in backwards hats, sneakers, and heavy gold chains. Oh my. Well, it seems Moschino has decided to pay homage to the Looney Tunes’ Hip-Hop days. Here is just one piece from the collection. Meet the Moschino Bugs Bunny Shoulder Bag!
I think WWD was right when they referred to the 1990s fad as the “cheesiest moment in marketing history”. But when it comes to Moschino, I think that is the whole point. After all, Moschino has already brought us collections inspired by McDonalds and Spongebob. So why not 1990s Looney Tunes too? The Bugs Bunny Shoulder Bag features a print of the iconic character wearing a jeweled crown and oversized carrot necklace. In the background is the Moschino logo. At least this piece is small and I suppose someone with a sense of humor and the right sense of style could pull off this quirky piece.
