  • Description

    Rome's Fontana Sisters presented their winter collection to fashions buyers and press yesterday (Saturday) at the Grand Hotel. Dark of muted colours-highlighted only occasionally by a white blouse or shiny accessory-and austere masculine styles predominated. Skirts, when they did appear, were invariably midi, while practically all feet and legs were encased in high, soft boots.

    Velvet was popular material-as in an "Edwardian" suit worn with a long beaded necklace and a short-brim bowler hat.

    Fur was much in evidence-particularly fox, which was seen often in hats or, in one outstanding example, as full-trimming to a grey midi-length suede coat.

    The "Cossak" look appeared often-in hats, coats and capes. One such cape was long and flowing with a high astrakan fur collar, worn over an interesting short skirt with fur panels hanging to each side.

    A combination of the midi and the male-look was seen in a "Sherlock Holmes" heavy checked outfit topped by a small trilby hat.
