  • Description

    IN THE PITTI PALACE IN FLORENCE YESTERDAY (TUESDAY, 7TH APRIL) THE NEW AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHIONS OF SEVERAL LEADING EUROPEAN DESIGNERS WERE UNVEILED AT A SPECIAL PARADE.

    THE PLUSH DECOR AND APPOINTMENTS OF THE PALACE HELPED CREATE A RICH ATMOSPHERE FOR AN EXCITING RANGE OF WARM NEW COLOURS AND STYLES READY FOR THE 1970-71 SEASONS.

    FROM THE HOUSE OF ENZO CAME A COLLECTION OF SLENDER AND GRACEFUL STYLES REFLECTING ROMANTIC TIMES. SLIM CALF-LENGTH DRESSES, SUPPLEMENTED BY JACKETS THAT GO BEYOND THE SIDES AND SIGNIFICANT RAISED COLLARS, WERE ALL PREDOMINANT FEATURES OF ENZO'S CREATIONS. THE MAIN INTEREST IN EACH FASHION GARMENT APPEARED TO CENTRE AT THE TOP, RESULTING IN A SLENDER SILHOUETTE IN KEEPING WITH RECENT TRENDS. FREQUENT USE WAS MADE OF BOLD REDS, GREEN, BROWN AND BLACK.

    READY-TO-WEAR HIGH FASHION BY FABIANI REVEALED MIDI-LENGTH COATS WITH A SOFT CLOSE-TO-THE-BODY LINE. WAISTLINES WERE SLIGHTLY RAISED ON PREVIOUS SEASONS. SHORT JACKETS OVER STRAIGHT SKIRTS, AND LONG FITTED SLEEVES ATTRACTED THE INTEREST OF MANY CRITICS.

    THE SORELLE FONTANA COLLECTION STAYED FAITHFUL TO THE MIDI-LENGTH, BUT CREATED THE ILLUSION OF LONGER FREER LINES. DARING NECKLINES WERE SOFTENED BY CHASTE INSETS AND MEDALLIONS.

    A TOUCH OF SPORTINESS WAS INTRODUCED IN THE FASHIONS PRESENTED BY HEINZ RIVA, BUT IT WAS A SPORTINESS TOUCHED WITH ELEGANCE.

    AS WITH SORELLA FONTANA, HEINZ RIVA HAS RETAINED THE MIDI LOOK. ANKLE-LENGTH SKIRTS WITH WIDE BELTS WERE TO THE FORE, AND CAREFREE TOUCHES RESULTED IN SOFT RUSTIC TWEED TRIANGLES.

    MAXI CAPES, AND DRESSES SUITS AND COATS SCARCELY ABOVE THE KNEES WERE SHOWN BY ANTONELLI SPORT. THE STYLE IS NO LONGER STIFF OR ANGLED, BUT FITTING AND USING SOFT FRONTAL PLEATS.

    EXCITING NEW AUTUMN AND WINTER STYLES FOR THE FASHION-CONSCIOUS WOMAN FROM EUROPE'S LEADING HOUSES.
