    WHILE MANY OF ITALY'S LEADING COUTURIERS FAVOUR THE MAXI LOOK FOR THE COMING SEASON, THE FONTANA SISTERS AND SARLI OF NAPLES FEATURED THE MINI IN A LIVELY YOUNG COLLECTION IN ROME ON SUNDAY (18 JANUARY).

    IT WAS THE SECOND DAY OF THE SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTIONS AND THE FONTANA SISTERS SHOWED SOME OF THEIR SHORTEST EVER OUTFITS, OFTEN WITH LITTLE PLEATED SKIRTS FLICKING OUT FROM UNDER A STRAIGHT BELTED TOP.

    THE NAPLES DESIGNER SARLI ALSO APPEALED TO THE YOUNG. HIS DAY OUTFITS WERE MOSTLY ABOUT THREE INCHES (SEVEN CMS) ABOVE THE KNEE AND PRACTICALLY ALL IN BITTER CHOCOLATE OR NAVY AND WHITE.

    THEY HAD NEAT, BELTED THREE-QUARTER OR SEVEN-EIGHTH LENGTH COATS SHOWING A FEW INCHES OF SKIRT IN THE SAME MATERIAL UNDERNEATH. THESE WERE WORN WITH BROWN OR NAVY STOCKINGS AND HIGH-HEELED LACE-UP SHOES.

    DESPITE THE MINI EMPHASIS, FONTANA DID SHOW THE MID-CALF LENGTH IN COATS, WITH AND WITHOUT SLEEVES, OVER TROUSERS, OF SHORT DRESSES.

    SARLI'S LONG COATS WERE WORN ONLY OVER TROUSERS, OFTEN WITH HUGE FLOPPY HATS.

    THERE WERE ALSO SHORT CRYSTAL-BEADED, SILVER FRINGED FLAPPER DRESSES WORN SOMETIMES WITH BEADS AND HEADSCARVES.
