Cheap & Chic is one of the two major diffusion lines (the other is Love Moschino) belonging to Moschino, the fashion house founded by the late Italian clothing designer Franco Moschino. Known for its bright colors, playful prints and youthful vibe, Moschino Cheap & Chic caters to women whose personal style toes the line between studiously polished and edgily undone. Here you’ll find jewel print mini dresses, ankle-length animal print silk gowns, attention-stealing watches and jewelry, and cute pieces like the Lady Love Bag — a pale pink leather purse decorated with a heart on the front flap. Floral flat shoes, rubber riding boots, and fragrances such as I Love Love perfume add the finishing touches to your Cheap & Chic looks. Under the direction of head designer Rossella Jardini, Moschino Cheap & Chic never fails to deliver slightly surreal, bold styles for women who like to have some fun with their fashion.
Cheap & Chic is Franco Moschino’s playful diffusion line. Known for bright colors, fun prints and a youthful vibe, the label has been a favorite with stars like Beyonce and Jessica Alba since 1988. Under the direction of head designer Rossella Jardini, Cheap & Chic specializes in a stylish, yet a tad undone, downtown look. In addition to the slightly surreal clothes that are never, ever understated, the sexy, quirky accessories like slouchy hats and colorful shoes make this line perfect for girls looking to have some fun with fashion.
The whimsy of Cheap & Chic and the transcendence of Philosophy. Where to start? Take the gray coat bordered by playful purple appliqués or the buttoned-up blazer with splashes of colored paillettes. Then scoop up these two stunning dresses: one in olive netting encrusted with mocha sequins, and the other in red velvet with a peek of black lace.
No matter your style, there is no passing by this treasure trove of designer ready-to-wear. For the purely demure set, rich suiting and extraordinary blouses can be found from both Valentino and Gianfranco Ferré. Fans of arty textures and sharp geometry will revel in the selections from Vivienne Tam, Yohji Yamamoto, Hanni Y and Issey Miyake. Smart, ever-so-preppy separates come from the likes of Brooks Brothers, Boy by Band of Outsiders and Malo. And, that's just the tip of the iceberg (yes, we have that brand, too!).
