    PIERRE BALMAIN, ONE OF EUROPE'S LEADING FASHION DESIGNERS, HAS UNVEILED HIS NEW FALL AND WINTER COLLECTION. BALMAIN DRESSES QUEEN SIRIKIT OF THAILAND, THE COMTESSE DE PARIS, AND A HOST OF OTHER ROYAL LADIES.

    HIS NEW COLLECTION IS BASED ON A PRINCESS SILHOUETTE WITH FITTED BODICE AND GENTLY FLARED SKIRTS WHICH ARE FLAT IN THE FRONT AND THE BACK AND WIDEN AT THE SIDES. THE HEMS ARE JUST ABOVE THE KNEES AND ARE WORN WITH TRANSLUCENT SHEER DARK STOCKING. WAISTLINES WANDER FROM AN INCH OR TWO (TOW TO FIVE CM) ABOVE THE NATURAL LINE TO SLIGHTLY BELOW IT.

    BAILMAN'S COLOURS ARE PREDOMINANTLY SOBER. BLACK, OXFORD GREY, LIGHTER GREYS AND TAUPE ARE IN THE LEAD, FOLLOWED BY PALE OFF-WHITES AND HONEY BEIGE. TWO-TONED EFFECTS APPEAR IN FURS, AS BLACK AND WHITE MINK COLLARS AND CUFFS, OR TRIPLE TONES AS A MINK COAT IN CHEVRON STRIPES OF BLACK, WHIT AND BROWN.

    THE WOOLS COMPRISE TWEEDS AND HEAVY WOOL JERSEYS AND CREPES. SILKS ARE ALSO USED.
