  • Description

    AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHIONS FROM THE HOUSE OF CARVEN -- DISPLAYED ELEGANTLY AGAINST THE WORLD FAMOUS BACKCLOTH OF MONTMARTRE AND THE SACRE-COEUR.

    A COLLECTION WHICH SAYS A COMPLETE GOODBYE TO THE STRAIGHT 'UP-AND-DOWN' SILHOUETTE, AND REPLACES IT WITH THE 'CRISIS-CROSS' LINE -- WHICH EMPHASISES THE WAIST AND STRESSES THE LINE OF THE SMALL HIGH BUST.

    SKIRTS ARE STILL KNEE-LENGTH, WHILE MANY OF THE SUITS HAVE LOW BELTS, WHICH PRODUCES A BLOUSE EFFECT. DAY DRESSES ARE STYLED ON THE X-LINE, AND HUG THE FIGURE CLOSELY. THE COATS DISPLAY ONE ORIGINAL CHARACTERISTIC -- SEAMS CUT SLANTWISE, TO PRODUCE A BIAS EFFECT AND A FLARE AT THE HEMLINE.

    THE WIDE RANGE OF MATERIALS INCLUDED CHECKS, TWEEDS AND TARTANS. THICK AND VERY FINE WOOLLEN MATERIAL, JERSEY, SILK, WOOL-LACE. BROCADE, SATIN-CREPE AND FINE LAME.

    AS USUAL AT THE HOUSE OF CARVEN, WHITE AND GREEN ARE VERY MUCH IN EVIDENCE. OTHER COLOURS USED INCLUDE RUBY, PURPLE, BROWN, BLUE AND BLACK.

    MOST OF THE HATS ARE CREATED IN THE CLOCHE STYLE, WITH ONE OR TWO CAPS AND BONNETS. QUITE A NUMBER ARE DECORATED WITH OSTRICH FEATHERS.
