Little French schoolgirls, one by one, dress in enchanting black. Colette, seated, and all of her pals are mad for matching tights. As for her dress, it's box-pleated from a low-lying waist and flies a flag of a tricolor tie: orange, black, violet! With tights, $23. Breton hats for everyone, by Adolfo 11. Zizi, standing in the center, zips herself up with a big ring pull in bright witty white. "Up" is an open-or-shut convertible colar in red. The dress, with black tights, about $23. Claudine is off in the background but easily seen - who could miss that six-foot scarf with signal stripes? White stitching sends a dress a message too. With tights, about $23. All shoes on this outing are by Nina. Gaby, kneeling, finds flavor in the orange-pop pocket hanky of her white-stitched dress. With skinny tights-but of course! about $23. All dresses are of smooth Heller jersey, wool knit in America. By A 'n' R jr.
Madeline, above, has a starchy white linen collar and mini-cuffs, plus silvery metal reflectors and streaks of red piping. Lebanon wool jersey. Mindy Malone, about $30. Red stockings by Bewitching.
