  • Description

    PARIS COUTURIER PIERRE CARDIN LAUNCHES HIS NEW SPRING FASHIONS ON A RIVER TRIP SHOWING AFLOAT ON THE SEINE.....EXTREMELY HIGH-STYLED, CLEVERLY CUT AND BRIMMING WITH NEW IDEAS, IT'S A COLLECTION HAILED AS HIS GREATEST YET.

    TAILORED DESIGNS, LIKE HIS SUIT DRESSES, ARE CUT WITH A LOW WAISTLINE: ONLY ONE OF MANY POINTS SUGGESTIVE OF THE CHARLESTON ERA. BUT FRENCH SAILORS' BERETS, WORN STRAIGHT AND MINUS THE POMPOM, ARE THE DOMINANT MILLINERY THEME.

    CARDIN CLEARLY INTENDS HIS FASHIONS TO BE WORN BY THE FAVOURED FEW, RATHER THAN HAVING THEM COPIED FOR MASS PRODUCTION. IN FACT HE HAS JUST GIVEN UP A READY-TO-WEAR LINE HE USED TO PRODUCE FOR A LEADING PARIS STORE.

    CREATING A BIG IMPACT ARE HIS NUDE-BACK EVENING DRESSES WITH DARING DECOLLETES. SLASHING THE "V" NECKLINES VERY LOW INDEED, HE DIES BOW TO CONVENTION BY ADDING A FLESH-TONED MODESTY PIECE.

    NARROW EVENING DRESSES SHOW THE BASIC SILHOUETTE OF A LOOSE-TAPERED CHEMISE TREATED TO A MULTITUDE OF ORIGINAL IDEAS. SOME, FOR INSTANCE, FEATURE A FLOATING PANEL. CARDIN'S COLOURS, ALWAYS PLEASING, RANGE THIS YEAR FROM THE USUAL FUCHSIA AND CYCLAMEN SHADES TO VIVID KINGFISHER TONES, APRICOTS AND GREENS.
