    FULL SKIRTS ARE ONCE AGAIN PROMINENT IN PIERRE BALMAIN'S 1965 SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION.COLOURS THIS YEAR ARE BRIGHT AND THERE IS AN EMPHASIS ON THE SLIM WAISTLINE.

    ONE OF BALMAIN'S MODELS THIS YEAR IS CALLED "CLARIDGE".THE DRESS IS IN RED WOOL AND HAS PLEATS AND SMOCKING AT THE WAIST.A MATCHING RED WOOL JACKET, WITH SMOCKING AT THE NECK AND WRISTS, IS WORN WITH IT.WITH THIS MODEL BALMAIN SUGGESTS A SQUARE BRETON HAT IN NAVY BLUE STRAW.HE SAYS THAT THIS YEAR THE HATS SHOULD BE WORN UPRIGHT AND SLIGHTLY TO THE BACK - SHOWING THE FOREHEAD.

    WORN WITH A NAVY BLUE BRETON HAT IS "FRANCOIS PREMIER".THIS IS A SKIRT WITH A SEVEN-EIGHTHS COAT IN NAVY BLUE WOOL.THE BLOUSE IS BRIGHT GREEN AND PINK AND MADE FROM SURAH.SETTING IT OFF IS A NARROW NAVY BLUE LEATHER BELT.

    "LULLABY" IS A CREATION IN SALMON PINK.IT HAS A FULL SKIRT AND JACKET.AGAIN THE BLOUSE IS IN PRINTED SURAH -- AND THERE'S A HAT TO MATCH.

    FOR AN INFORMAL COUNTRY DINNER, BALMAIN SUGGESTS "VESTRIS".THE BODICE IS IN WHITE LINEN, WHILE THE SKIRT IS IN PRINTED BROWN AND WHITE LINEN.A BLACK LEATHER BELT SETS OFF THE WAIST.THE WHOLE OUTFIT IS MADE THAT LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT BY TWO FLOATING PANELS - ONE ON EACH SIDE.

    BALMAIN BELIEVES THAT THE TYPICAL EVENING DRESS THIS YEAR SHOULD BE IN ORGANZA AND FINISHED OFF WITH AN ENORMOUS STOLE."VERONESE" IS JUST SUCH A CREATION.THE DRESS AND THE STOLE ARE IN PRINTED GREEN ORGANZA.

    "VINCENNES" HAS A WHITE SATIN COAT LINED WITH PINK SATIN.IT'S WORN WITH A WHITE SILK ORGANDI DRESS, GENEROUSLY EMBROIDERED.

    MORE EMBROIDERY IS FOUND ON "VIRGINIA" - A PINK SILK ORGANDI DRESS.

    BALMAIN IS SUGGESTING TWO SILHOUETTES FOR THIS SPRING AND SUMMER.ONE OF THEM IS WIDE - WITH PLEATED AND OVERPLEATED FULLNESS.THE OTHER WIDENS SLIGHTLY TOWARDS THE HEM IN AN OBELISK SHAPE - BUT THE DESIGNER EMPHASISES IT IS NEVER TUBULAR.BOTH SILHOUETTES HAVE THE SAME CHARACTERISTICS - A TINY BODICE UNDER NATURAL SHOULDERS, A SMALL WAISTLINE, NORMAL HIPS AND THE HEM JUST COVERING THE KNEE.
