Miu Miu's take on home-on-the-range dressing was livened up by delicate ethnic toucheslike Moroccan-inspired embroidery on full-bodied, pleated skirts that dance at the knee. Long, tiered skirts make the transition from country to city style when worn with peppy floral button-downs and smart little cardigans. At times, things got just a little too girlyit's hard to imagine anyone past 16 wearing a Little Red Riding Hood smock with gathered short sleeves. On the other hand, there were plenty of simpler, breezier camisoles that will work as chic, simple Summer staples.
