New York: Quirky society girls straight out of Gossip Girl mingled with upscale, tartan-loving punks in Moschino Cheap and Chic’s latest collection. Regardless the inspiration, each muse played a game of playful dress up, mixing printed skater skirts with ankle socks and sandals, or combining pastel pink with vibrant chartreuse. Witty trompe l’oeil touches ran throughout, from faux cross body bags to stenciled toggle closures. But it was styling, rather than construction or design, that stole the show, with off-kilter juxtapositions, a pastel meets acid palette, and oversize details like floppy bows affixed to sandals creating the cartoonish atmosphere.—Nina Stotler
