  • Description

    Once the bastion of strictly European elegance and style, the Paris high fashion scene has recently started to open its doors to influences from every corner of the globe. In the forefront of this new wave are the Japanese designers and among them on of the most successful is Hanae Mori.

    SYNOPSIS: Miss Mori opened her Paris salon at the beginning of this year, after establishing herself as a famous name in her own country. Showing her first haute couture winter collection on Tuesday (19 July) she played it cautious -- avoiding the outrageous and sticking instead to a comfortable, romantic and very feminine line. This caftan-style evening dress is a typical example of her approach -- easy-to-wear and completely concealing it epitomises a safe appeal to rich ladies from Tokyo to California, via the Middle East.

    For daytime Hanae Mori also goes for the big cover-up. This stone-coloured boucle tweed suit is teamed with an up-to-the-neck and down-to-the-wrists blouse -- and the skirt length is certainly not designed to shock. This is Miss Mori's fourth collection in France. She also does thriving business in the United States as well as employing over 1,400 people in Japan.
