    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: BALMAIN: "Muted colours, very soft fabrics, very comfortable, a lot of fur. These are going to be the characteristics of the new collection."



    "A lot of fur...brown fox trim on this suit in bright herringbone tweed in brown and beige, of which the sleeves are cut in one piece with the yoke at the back. Straight jacket, with a long blouse in cashmere jersey and straight pockets."



    "And now comes a bouquet of evening dresses. One in black velvet, with collarette made of black tulle with diamonds and blank velvet. Another one in steel grey crepe georgette, of which the sleeves are cut like handkerchiefs on the bias. The third one inspired by Goya...black velvet bodice with long sleeves. The skirt is made of tulle embroidered with motifs of lace...a cabbage rose at the neckline. Very soft and Greek inspired, this long sheath of beige jersey edged with ostrich feathers dyed like lynx fur. A dinner dress in brown georgette with the sleeves again, the same sleeves cut like handkerchiefs. A prestigious evening ensemble of which the coat is in white mink with white fox and the dress a very simple, understated elegant dress, chemisiere dress for the evening in white crepe."
