    CU Balmain SOF Starts "A colourful winter.. PAN TO two models wearing tweed, model in red and black check removes coat to show blouse, second model in full length green coat with black collar and cuffs, third model enters with purple and white evening dress SOF ENDS: "..... evenings of the winter."

    "A colourful winter - this is what we propose this season. We want to forget all the grey colours that were used during so many years for the winter, like dark-grey, brown or black. We want the women to stand to ease in bright blues, bright red....green or red-and-black like this suit that is mae of checked weed with a longer jacket, with double-breasted bottoms, "swakara" trimming and a skirt that is pleated from low on he hips to give a fullness and an easiness of movement. The blues is made of jersey, marrying the two colours like a ....(indistinguishable)....this coat is in a brilliant green tweed with low fullness in the back. From an inverted pleat it is opened to a black "swakara" and it is worn with a dress in blue crepe of exactly the same shade. We think that for the evening women will like to become very, very feminine and to wear these dresses in jersey that are moving so gracefully. this one is purple, white, trimmed with black velvet and will be very wonderful to spend the brilliant evenings of the winter."
