Candy-colored tie-dye swirls, daisies (both printed and embroidered), scads of macramé lace, and a graphic shift spelling out "PEACE" were dead giveaways that the hippie 1960s were the theme of the new Moschino Cheap And Chic
Resort collection. Francesca Rubino and Rossella Jardini conjured up a modern flower child with crocheted maxi dresses and bell-sleeve baby dolls that would fit right in at any of this summer's big music festivals. Less costume-y pieces like an accordion-pleat leather skirt and wide-leg cropped trousers seemed more versatile by comparison. The free-spirited lineup was a total 180 from the label's punk-spiked Fall runway show, but everything considered, we suspect the Cheap And Chic girl has always been more of a lover than an fighter, anyway.
