    Background: "SUPERB CLOTHES, SUPERBLY TAILORED, THE QUINTESSANCE OF GOOD TASTE" WERE THE LYRICAL PHRASES HEAPED BY FASHION JOURNALISTS ON THE SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION FROM THE HOUSE OF MICHAEL, THE LONDON COUTURIER.

    SUITS WERE THE ITEMS WHICH CAUGHT THE EYES OF BUYERS AND JOURNALISTS. EVERYTHING CURVES - THE NEW WIDER PADDED SHOULDERS, THE EDGE OF THE SLEEVE AND HEMLINE. THESE CURVES GIVE A BALANCE WHICH IS VERY ATTRACTIVE.

    THE CURVE WAS ALSO APPARENT IN MICHAEL'S CLUTCH COATS, CUT ON THE BIAS GIVING A WONDERFUL TRAPPED EFFECT, WITH WIDE SHOULDERS TAPERING ELEGANTLY TO A SLIM HEM.

    THE COLOURS ARE PALE: WHITE, SANDY BEIGE, PALE PINK, MARINA BLUE AND NUN GREY. THE HATS ECHOED THESE COLOURS IN STYLES RANGING FROM CLOCHE TO TURBAN.

    THIS IS THE THIRTIES LOOK WIDELY FORECAST AS THE STYLE OF THE NEAR FUTURE.

    ANOTHER OF THE "TOP TEN" DESIGNERS WHO PRESENTED HIS COLLECTION DURING THE FASHION WEEK, WAS HARDY AMIES. MOST WRITERS DESCRIBED THE TRENDS OF THIS DESIGNER AS "QUIET" AND "COMPLETELY ASSURED". SUITS WERE YOUTHFUL WITH BLOUSES IN WHITE PIQUE OR SOFT TULLE.

    IN THE COLLECTION THERE WAS A COMPLETE SERIES OF DAY DRESSES WITH THEIR OWN OVERCOATS - A TOP COAT IN ALMOND GREEN AND PINK CHECK TWEED OVER A DRESS OF ALMOND GREEN WOOL. FOR A PERFECT SUMMER DAY THERE WERE DUST COATS OF PURE SILK GAUZE OVER PRINTED SILK DRESSES.
