  • Description

    AS HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THIS WEEKS PARIS AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHION COLLECTIONS, WHICH OPEN TODAY (MONDAY), JACQUES ESTEREL LAUNCHES HIS NEW LOOK FOR BOTH THE SEXES. HE CALLS THE STYLE "NEGLIGE SNOB" WHICH COULD BE TRANSLATED "CASUAL SUPERIORITY".

    ESTEREL SHOWS HIMSELF THE INNOVATOR THIS YEAR IN MARKETING AS WELL AS FASHION-- HIS SHOW IS EQUALLY A SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION FOR THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, WHICH PUTS HIM NEATLY SIX MONTHS AHEAD OF HIS RIVALS.

    TODAY, ESTEREL ARGUES, MEN AND WOMEN ACT MORE AND MORE ALIKE, FOLLOW THE SAME PROFESSIONS, THE SAME SPORTS AND THE SAME LEISURE ACTIVITIES, EVEN SHARE THE DOMESTIC CHORES. THEREFORE STYLE NEED NO LONGER DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN THEM.

    THIS, HE SAYS, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BIOLOGICAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SEXES, NOR THEIR POWER OF ATTRACTION. BUT THEIR CONFRONTATION HAS NO NEED TO TAKE PLACE IN THE STREET -- AT HOME WE HOPE IT WILL RETAIN IN ALL FASCINATION.

    "NEGLIGE SNOB" THEREFORE OFFERS BOTH SEXES (AND THEIR CHILDREN) A UNIVERSAL STYLE. AND WITHIN THIS STYLE, ESTEREL SAYS, FASHION CAN MAKE ALL THE "DIFFERENCE" ANYONE NEEDS.

    TO DEMONSTRATED THIS, ESTEREL'S MALE AND FEMALE MODELS APPEAR FIRST IN MATCHING DAYWEAR: THEY ARE WEARING MOTTLED BLUE-GREY JERSEY-COATS WHICH THEY TAKE OFF TO SHOW THEIR WHITE GABERDINE TROUSERS AND ORANGE JERSEY JUMPERS WITH WHITE VERTICAL TRIMMINGS. A CHILD IN A MATCHING OUTFIT JOINS THEM.

    THEN THE COUPLE APPEAR IN DAY COATS OF QUAIL-COLOURED JERSEY, AND TAKE THEM OFF TO SHOW TWO-PIECE TROUSER-SUITS OF LIGHT BLUE JERSEY. AGAIN THE CHILD HAS A SIMILAR OUTFIT.

    FINALLY "NEGLIGE SNOB" IN THE EVENING; THE TWO MODELS WEAR MATCHING OUTFITS -- THE JACKETS IN WHITE "VISTRAM" EMBROIDERED IN GOLD, THE TROUSERS IN PLAIN WHITE JERSEY.
