Flowers, it should be obvious, were the collection's main motif. They were printed in delicate, powdery bouquets on swirling natural cotton-muslin dresses and embroidered in pink on a white georgette gown. Ruffles were another theme. They trailed round and round the skirts of strapless tulle frocks in two-tone shades of pink or lilac. Silk mikado skirtsuits, again with ruffles tracing the lapels, provided a counterpoint to all that softness. The lineup was composed almost entirely of dresses, which made a chic pair of belted, high-waisted cropped pants, worn with an embroidered ivory blouse, all the more noticeable. It was a cool lookand even those who shun rose-colored glasses would be tempted.
