  • Description

    THE FASHIONS FOR SPRING AND SUMMER FROM THE ITALIAN FASHION DESIGNERS HAVE BROUGHT FORTH MANY BOLD CREATIONS WITH THE MOTIF DRAWN FROM THE ERA OF THE 1930'S. BUT ONE DESIGNER WHO HAS KEPT, IN THE MAIN, TO A SIMPLE LINE IN BOTH FORMAL AND INFORMAL CLOTHES IS FERNANDA GATTINONI.

    THE SIMPLICITY FOR WHICH SHE IS KNOWN IS NOT STARK, BUT AS WITH ALL ITALIAN DESIGNERS SHE HAS USED BRIGHT AND EVEN FANCIFUL COLOURS TO CREATE GOWNS THAT ARE YOUTHFUL AND FEMININE.

    FOR EVENING WEAR, GATTINONI HAS USED DECORATION TO GOOD EFFECT. IT'S MOST NOTICEABLE IN HER WHITE SILK JERSEY EVENING DRESS WHERE THE BODICE AND STRAPS ARE EMBROIDERED WITH CRYSTAL DROPS AND RHINESTONES. THE PANELS, WHICH FALL FROM THE WAIST, ARE FRAMED WITH THE SAME EMBROIDERY.

    THE ELEGANCE OF THE BALL IS CAPTURED IN A BALL GOWN WHERE BLACK LACE RESTS GENTLY OVER ROSE COLOURED SILK. THE COLOUR IS PALE OVER THE BODICE, BY BECOMES DEEPER AS TWO GREAT FLOUNCES REACH THE FLOOR. THE WAIST IS BOUND BY A DRAPED BLACK SATIN SASH WHICH LOOPS AT THE BACK AND FALLS TO THE HEM.

    ANOTHER ENSEMBLE, DESIGNED FOR GARDEN PARTIES, USES LACE IN A DUSKY PINK AND TRIMMED WITH SILK SHANTUNG. THE DRESS, TYPICAL OF CITTINONI'S SIMPLE LINE, IS CUT IN THE SHANTUNG SILK USED TO OFF-SET THE COAT.

    ALSO IN A PARTY MOOD IS GITTINONI'S GREEN CHIFFON COCKTAIL DRESS. IT HAS A HEART SHAPED NECKLINE WITH HALTER STRAPS CLASPED AT THE BACK BY TOW ROSES MEETING TWO PANELS WHICH FROM A CAPE. THE BODICE IS MOULDED TO THE WAIST BY SMALL DRAPES WHICH BURST OVER THE FRONT OF THE SKIRT AND FALL IN TWO CASCADES TO THE HEMLINE.

    THE DRAPED BODICE REAPPEARS IN AN OLD-GOLD CHIFFON DRESS THAT IS CUT WITH A SQUARE NECKLINE. THE BODICE IS HIGHER AT THE FRONT AND THE FULL SKIRT IS GIVEN A TAILORED APPEARANCE BY SMALL SUNRAY PLEATS.

    SILK IN A RICH EMERALD GREEN IS FAVOURED FOR A SMART STREET SUIT. IT IS OVER-PRINTED FOR EFFECT WITH BLACK DOTS. THE JACKET IS SMART AND SHORT, WHILE THE RATHER STRAIGHT SKIRT IS SOFTENED BY A PLEATED PANEL. THE BLOUSE IS MADE OF EMERALD GREEN SHEER CHIFFON WITH A HIGH NECKLINE AND DEEP V AT THE BACK. IT IS TUCKED INTO THE SKIRT AND HELD BY TWIN BELTS AT THE WAIST. A BLACK STRAW HAT IN AN ASSYMETRIC DESIGN COMPLETES THE ENSEMBLE.
