  • Description

    LONDON'S READY-TO-WEAR MARKET GOT A GLIMPSE TODAY (MONDAY) OF THE FASHIONS IT WILL BE SPORTING DURING THE COMING YEAR. THE FRENCH READY-TO-WEAR CLOTHING FEDERATION WAS THE IMPRESARIO BEHIND TODAY'S SHOWING.

    AND THE NEW LOOK IS IN FACT AN OLD LOOK, WITH A SWING BACK TO THE POST WAR FASHION FOR THE OCCASIONAL CALF LENGTH SKIRT, FITTED WAIST, NATURAL SHOULDER AND LIGHTLY-EMPHASISED BUST.

    COATS WERE SHOWING THE INDIAN INFLUENCE, WITH SQUARISH SHOULDERS, SET-IN SLEEVES, AND 'NEHRU' COLLARS -- OR TENT SHAPED, WITH FULLNESS STARTING FROM THE COLLAR IN PLEATS OR PANELS.

    DRESSES HAVE RESURRECTED THE WAIST -- FEMININITY REARS ITS PRETTY HEAD IN PEASANT DRESSES WITH GATHERED WAISTS AND TINY BELTS. LONG FULL FLOATING SLEEVES, TRIMMED WITH BANDS OF BABY LACE, ARE LIKELY TO BE VERY MUCH IN EVIDENCE. AND THAT RELIC OF EARLIER CENTURIES, THE 'MARTINGALE' FULLNESS AT THE BACK, WILL BE SEEN ON MANY A MODEL.

    AS PROMISED BY MAJOR COUTURIERS EARLIER THIS YEAR. COLOURS TEND TOWARDS THE SOMBRE. BROWNS, NAVYS AND BLACK WILL BE WORN FOR FORMAL CLOTHING, BUT THE GAYER COLOURS WILL SURVIVE FOR BEACH AND CASUAL WEAR.
