  • Description

    Leading French couturier Pierre Balmain has unveiled his latest collection for autumn and winter.

    His themes are muted colours, soft fabrics and the return of fur. He emphasises glamorous evening wear...and no expense is spared. His materials include such things as white mink and diamonds.

    In an exclusive preview, Balmain personally described the highlights from his new collection for Visnews in Paris on Wednesday (23 July). He spoke in French and an alternative English commentary is transcribed overleaf.

    The highlight of this daywear collection is a three-piece suit in herringbone tweed. It is trimmed with brown fox and offset with a wide brimmed, fur-trimmed hat.

    His evening dresses had a variety of themes. They ranged from a black velvet dress trimmed with black tulle and diamonds to a full-length white mink and fox coat with a matching white crepe dress in a simple, classical design.
