    Background: Fashion news.. the London salon of Christian Dior gave a preview of their autumn collection, May 24. The line has a deceptive impression of simplicity. Coats are in two styles: the first is straight and ample, and the second a new slant on the redingote with a looser and fuller flare-out.

    Skirts are still flared, but in folds rather than pleats (as in the summer) and jackets tend to fit closely. Dresses are collarless, with three-quarter sleeves and flared skirts. Pumpkin-shaped jackets are introduced for all occasions throughout the day.

    Colour: there is a concentration on dark autumn shades. Black enjoys a wide play, and is often found in contrast to white. Here and there is a flash of brilliant red or green and September pink. And a variety of fur is used on coats, suits and hats.

    The fabrics: A profusion of heavy woollen tweeds and checks for daywear - siberline, silks, brocades and chiffon for evening and cocktail wear. Velvet figures widely in both day an evening wear.
