  • Description

    LEATHER - AS A TOP FASHION MATERIAL APPEARS TO BE HERE TO STAY. THIS TREND WAS UNDERLINED AT A FASHION PARADE HELD IN LONDON TODAY (TUESDAY).

    THE LATEST COLLECTIONS FROM PARIS SHOWED THE DRAMATIC EFFECTS OF LEATHER IN HIGH FASHION, AND THE MODELS ON SHOW IN LONDON GIVE THIS TREND A WIDER APPLICATION.

    HIGHLIGHT OF THE SHOW WAS THE INTERPRETATION OF ORIGINAL NINA RICCI DESIGNS INTO LEATHER - BOTH GLACE AND SUEDE. IT WAS IN THESE DESIGNS THAT THE VERSATILITY OF THE MATERIAL WAS BEST DEMONSTRATED. LEATHER "FROM MORNING TO NIGHT" COULD HAVE BEEN THE KEYWORD FOR THE COLLECTION.

    MOST POPULAR DESIGNS ON SHOW WERE THE "LEATHER-LOOK" FOR THE NEW, TOP-FASHION SLACKS SUIT. THESE WERE SHOWN IN SMOOTH, SOFT, GLACE LEATHER, IN SUEDE, AND IN THE NEW "GLOGRAIN" LEATHER-A METALLIC FINISH WITH AN IRIDESCENT LOOK.

    NEW COLOURS WERE WIDELY USED. THE MOST POPULAR WAS "GOLDFINGER" - A GOLDEN COLOUR SHOWN IN BOTH GLACE AND SUEDE. OTHERS WERE "WHISKEY", "NEW MOON" "EASTER ROSE" AND "SKY TINT".

    AMONG THE MOST DRAMATIC MODELS ON SHOW WAS "OPERA". IN WHITE GLACE LEATHER, IT FEATURED A FULL-LENGTH EVENING GOWN AND COAT. COCKTAIL COATS, SUITS, CAPES AND SKIRTS ALL SHOWED THE LATEST TRENDS BY RICCI, ONE OF THE WORLD'S TOP DESIGNERS.
