  • Description

    MORE SPRING FASHIONS ON DISPLAY IN PARIS .... CARVEN HAS BROUGHT A TOUCH OF THE EAST TO THE SEASON'S FASHIONS WITH SOME HIGHLY COLOURED AND EXOTIC STYLES FOR HER NEW MODELS. HER LATEST CREATIONS SHOW THE EFFECTS OF HER RECENT TRAVELS IN THE ORIENT. ONE LINE, A VERY NEAT STRAIGHT SET, RESEMBLES COSTUMES WORN BY MEN IN MANILA. THE OTHER LINE IS FULL SKIRTED AND IN GAY COLOURS.

    HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOW ARE THE "MANILA" SUITS WHICH ARE ALMOST TUBULAR AND HAVE A VERY LOOSE BELT. ALSO ATTRACTING A LOT OF ATTENTION WERE THE "PHILIPPINES" CARACOS, WHICH ARE VERY SHORT, CLOSE-FITTING JACKETS, WITH DRESSES THAT ARE EITHER "KEKOINE", LIKE SOFTENED TUNICS, OR ELSE "SWISHY", ENTIRELY PLEATED AND WIDE.

    FOR EVENING FORMAL WEAR, ATTRACTIVE MANILA DRESSES WITH "TROMPE L'OEIL" FLOUNCES WORN WITH A COURT COAT ARE SUGGESTED. AN "ANAMITE" EVENING DRESS, CALLED "TONKINOISE", IS ANOTHER ATTRACTIVE CREATION. WHITE AND DECORATED WITH PINK AND GREEN FLOWERS, IT'S WORN WITH PINK SLACKS.

    BELL-SHAPED SLEEVES ARE VERY PROMINENT THIS YEAR AND ARE INCLUDED IN CARVEN'S MANILA EVENING DRESS WHICH IS WHITE WITH EMBROIDERED ORGANDIE WITH A WIDE BELT, AND IN HER "TYPHON" MODEL -- A DRESS AND COAT IN ORANGE PRINTED VOILE.
