Style with a silver tongue; Franco Moschino’s own personal brand of humor is what made his eponymous line famous the world over. He created his label in 1983 after realizing his interest in fashion while working as an illustrator for Gianni Versace. All of the Moschino brands are known for their wit and satire of the industry they belong to. Dubbed the “Jean Paul Gaultier,” of Italian fashion, Franco Moschino always cut clothes that were refined and classic but infused them with a bit of the subversive. One such piece that embodies this to a T is the Moschino Cheap & Chic gladiator kitten heel.

The refined low-heeled pump paired with the multiple studded ankle straps is exactly the sort of juxtaposition you would expect from a fashion house that sends a model down the runway dressed impeccably, but with a chicken perched on her head.
