  • Description

    THE FIRST OF THE PARIS COUTURIERS TO SHOW AN ANTI-MINI-SKIRT TREND WITH HIS SPRING COLLECTION, PIERRE BALMAIN SHARPLY DROPPED THE HEMLINE ON ALL HIS CREATIONS.

    WITH KNEES HIDDEN, BALMAIN'S SPRING CREATIONS BRING BACK LOW FLARED SKIRTS FOR AFTERNOON DRESSES.

    IN BALMAIN'S SPRING DRESSES, THE WAISTLINE IS ALWAYS CLEARLY DEFINED, SOME WITH LEATHER CUMMERBUNDS UP TO FOUR INCHES WIDE. THESE WIDE BELTS COUPLED WITH LONGER SKIRTS GIVE NEW PROPORTIONS TO THE SILHOUETTE.

    HIS PRETTY AND VERY FEMININE COLLECTION REVEALS THE EXTENSIVE USE OF WIDE BRAID BANDS AND PIPING IN CONTRASTING COLOURS TO EDGE HEMLINES, NECKLINES, SLEEVES AND COLLARS OF SUITS OR DRESS AND JACKET ENSEMBLES.

    BALMAIN PROMINENTLY FEATURES THE COAT DRESS. THESE ARE IN EVERY KIND OF FABRIC, FROM WOOLLEN CREPE TO SILK PRINTS PATTERNED IN GIANT PAISLEY OR MODERN ABSTRACT DESIGNS. THESE DRESSES ARE FITTED IN FRONT WITH A WIDE LEATHER BELT, CONTRASTING A LOOSE AND STRAIGHT BACK CONTAINING A SEMI-DETACHED PANEL.
