Pearls and polka dots. Rosella Jardini went to town with the motifs, edging a white bouclé jacket in the lustrous gems, printing them on a little day dress, and splashing spots all over everything from blouses and short shorts to a wide-legged jumpsuit. You don't go to Moschino for understated. Irreverence, yes. A black trench stitched with mother-of-pearl buttons into heart and peace-sign formations had that in spades. But this was a relatively tame collection for the label, for the most part short on the tongue-in-cheek touches Jardini usually relies upon, and longer on a more ladylike kind of elegance. Case in point: a positively sedate sage green rose-print coat with a deep ruffle at the hem.
