A logo tee featuring a woman with hearts and flowers spilling out of the top of her head announced, "I've got a lot on my mind." From the looks of it, so does creative director Rosella Jardini. Her Moschino Cheap & Chic show synthesized many of the season's early trends: Jewel tones; the new longer, narrow skirts; flared-leg pantsuits; and patchwork prints all made appearances. A black shift dress hand-painted with abstract flowers and a white tuxedo suit with black satin lapels were two of the highlights. By focusing on items and avoiding obvious themes this time around, Jardini may not have brought the news, but she did produce Milan's most grown-up diffusion collectionlogo tees notwithstanding.
