  • Description

    PIERRE BALMAIN PRESENTS AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHIONS, SHOWN OFF TO ADVANTAGE IN THE FITTINGLY ELEGANT SETTING OF THE TROCADERO GARDENS IN PARIS. FIRST, FOR EVENING WEAR, IS "VERSAILLES" IN PINK AND GOLD BROCADE.

    FOR "FETE A CHAMBORD", A GOWN AND COAT, BALMAIN HAS CHOSEN RICH TRIMMINGS OF MINK COLLAR FITTED WITH PHEASANT FEATHERS, CONTRASTING WITH THE SOMBRE BROWN DRESS. ALSO FOR THE EVENING, WITH AN ATTRACTIVE FLOATING PANEL, IS "HONG KONG" WITH BLACK SATIN TUNIC AND BLACK VELVET SKIRT.

    FASHION WRITERS SAY THE COLLECTION IS ONE OF HIS BEST, SHOWING SLIM CLEAN LINES. THE "GOLEM ENSEMBLE" COMPRISES A COAT WITH A FLARED DRESS IN RED LACE. ALWAYS ONE TO AVOID COMPLICATED DESIGNS, BALMAIN LIMITS EXTRANEOUS DETAIL. HIS COLLECTION FEATURES MANY STRAPLESS AND LOW-BACKED GOWNS. IN "CHAMPAGNE", A BOW UNDER THE BUST GIVES A PRETTY HIGH-WAISTED EFFECT.

    THE PARIS DESIGNER PREDICTS ANOTHER ??? WINTER AND, IN "TRANS-SIBERIAN", A THICK FOX COAT, MAKE GOOD PROVISION FOR IT. THREE-PIECE SUITS ARE PLENTIFUL. SNUG AND WARM IN BLACK AND VIOLET TWEED IS ONE CALLED "PARC MONCEAU", GIVEN ITS FINAL TOUCH WITH A BLACK SEALSKIN HAT. THIS WAS THE BALMAIN COLLECTION -- HIGH COUTURE FROM PARIS.
