    INTRODUCTION: Nina Ricci of Paris has banned trousers in her ultra-feminine and flowing spring and summer collection.

    SYNOPSIS: As usual her creations carry the stamp elegance that has kept the Ricci fashion house among the world's leading haute couture designers for many years. But there are many significant changes this season. First of all in colours--with all the whites decisively in the lead, followed by eggshell and the pale ivories. Among others only so called "sweet" colours have been accepted. Then there is a return of the wasp-waisted dresses along with filmy pleated or gathered skirts.

    An important feature of fabrics used this season is their softness and the stiff padded shoulders are no longer in fashion.

    But legs are definitely back in the limelight as hemlines soar up to reveal a glimpse of the knee. And shoes are often with four inch (10 cm) heels.

    Light flowing fabrics are favoured for evening dresses this season -- the violet, partly see-through gown from this latest Ricci collection being the best example of the new trend. The wasp-waist line is in for evening dresses as well.

    Floral decoration is also used quite often -- not only on fabrics, but also tucked into decollates and pinned in the hair. This Nina Ricci designed evening dress features the asymmetrical hemline. But again -- the shorter length seems to be the 'look' for 1977.
