  • Description

    ITALIAN DRESS DESIGNERS HAVE BEEN WORKING OVERTIME TO PREPARE NEW MODELS FOR THIS YEAR'S SPRING-SUMMER SEASON. FROM SOME OF THESE LINES, FILMED IN ROME JANUARY 8, THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT HIGHER WAIST-LINES AND WIDER SLEEVES WILL STAY. OUT WILL GO ANY IDEA OF A DROP IN THE HEMLINE.

    MANY OF THE FORMAL EVENING GOWNS ARE STYLED AFTER 15TH CENTURY MASTERPIECES. COUTURIER ELEANOR GARNETT'S HOSTESS GOWNS DEMONSTRATE THIS. THEY ARE ACTUALLY TROUSERS - BUT THAT SECRET IS NOT EASILY REVEALED. "GYNARA", A TURQUOISE LINEN HOSTESS GOWN WITH RED CUMMERBUND IS AN ELEGANT ENSEMBLE FOR HOUSE WEAR.

    ALSO DESIGNED AS TROUSERS IS "ZAMBARA"; A STRIKING CREATION FOR HOSTESSES IN ORANGE SHANTUNG AND GOLD BRAID. BOTH "GYNARA" AND "ZAMBARA" ARE FITTED HIGH UNDER THE BOSOM AND FLARE GENTLY DOWN TO THE HEMLINES OF THESE FULL-LENGTH GOWNS.

    A SMART BLUE WOOL-SILK TAILORED SUIT BY TITA ROSSI IS TRIMMED WITH WHITE LACE. AND ON TOP A BLACK HAT TRIMMED WITH THE SAME WHITE LACE.

    IN SILK SHANTUNG A STYLISH, BLONDE COFFEE COLOUR DRESS. THIS HAS A BOLERO JACKET MADE OF SANGALLO LACE. THE JACKET IS LINED WITH THE SAME LACE. TO COMPLETE THE EFFECT THERE IS A BLACK HAT IN COARSE STRAW.

    TWO COCKTAIL DRESSES IN SATIN. ONE IS A TWO-PIECE BLACK SATIN ORGANZA WITH HAT MADE OF SILK ORGANZA. THE OTHER IS OF WHITE ORGANZA SATIN, CROWNED WITH A BLACK STRAW HAT TRIMMED WITH SANGALLO LACE.

    FINALLY, AN ELEGANT FULL WHITE SILK EVENING GOWN WITH FLOWERS EMBROIDERED IN 'RELIEF', WITH WIDE WHITE SATIN SASH. TRIMMINGS ON SLEEVES ARE OF SAME SATIN. IT SHOULD BE A SMART ROMAN SPRING.
