    THE HOUSE OF DIOR -- PERHAPS THE MOST FAMOUS FASHION HOUSE OF THEM ALL -- HAS DONE AFRICAN FOR ITS SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION. THIS WEAR MARC BOHAN, DIOR'S CHIEF DESIGNER, HAS LAUNCHED SAFARU SUITS, TROUSER DRESSES EXPLORERS' OUTFITS AND COLOURFUL PRINTED FABRICS INSPIRED BY NEGRO ART ON TOTEM POLES.

    THERE IS NO REVOLUTION EXCEPT FOR THE SHORTEST HEMLINE EVER SEEN AT THE MAISON DIOR. BOHAN DOES NOT OUTDATE THE STATUS QUO, BUT HIS AFRICAN LOOK BRINGS SIN A FRESH AND DIFFERENT COLLECTION.

    HEMLINES RANGE FROM TWO TO THREE INCHES (5 TO 7 CMS) ABOVE THE KNEES. SAFARI ENSEMBLES ARE WORN WITH WHITE SHOES AND STOCKINGS AND PLANTERS HATS WITH CHIN-STRAP AND THE BRIM TIPPED UP ON ONE SIDE. LOOSE BELTS OF GOLD METAL LINKS CIRCLE THE WAISTLINE.

    TROUSER DRESSES HAVE CULLOTE SKIRTS WORKED WITH A DEEP INVERTED PLEAT AT THE FRONT AND BACK.

    THE FLARED TRAPEZE SILHOUETTE WIDENING TO THE SHORT HEMLINE TURNS UP IN HEAVY SHANTUNG PRINTED DRESSES.
