  • Description

    PARISIAN ELEGANCE AND SOPHISTICATION IN LONDON..AT A FASHION SHOW OF NIGHTWEAR AND LINGERIE FROM TEN OF FRANCE'S LEADING DESIGNERS, WHICH WAS SHOWN TO THE PRESS TODAY (WEDNESDAY).

    FRENCH LINGERIE HAS BEEN SEEN IN BRITAIN BEFORE, BUT IT IS THE FIRST TIME THAT A SHOW HAS BEEN DEVOTED ENTIRELY TO THIS FACET OF HAUTE COUTURE.

    AMONG THE SEVENTY CREATIONS ON SHOW WAS "FLORENCE VERONIQUE" FROM THE HOUSE OF VITOS. THIS FEATURED A SHORT NEGLIGEE WITH A TINY CAPE. IT WAS WORN A NIGHTDRESS CUT ON SIMPLE LINES TO FOCUS INTEREST ON THE SLEEVES WHICH ARE WORKED WITH HEAVY LACE FRILLS.

    AMONGST THE MODELS OF VALISERE WAS "BRAVO" -- A PERMANENTLY PLEATED NIGHTDRESS IN NYLON. IT IS LINED WITH CONTRASTING OPAQUE NYLON AND DELICATELY TRIMMED WITH CALAIS LACE.

    "MASURKA" BY NEYRET. IN OPAQUE NYLON, THIS NIGHTGOWN IS TRIMMED WITH COLOURED LACE. INVERTED PLEATS ARE HELD IN PLACE BY A NARROW BELT. IN THIS MODEL AS IN MOST OF THE CREATIONS ON SHOW, LACE CONTINUES TO BE THE MOST ELEGANT AND POPULAR ADORNMENT FOR LINGERIE.

    PYJAMAS WERE A FAVOURITE WITH SOME DESIGNERS. THE COLLECTION SHOWS THEM WITH ADDED SOPHISTICATION, AS IN "GALATA" BY CHESTERFIELD. HERE THE FABRIC WAS NYLON, WITH A ROSE NOT IF EMBROIDERED OVERALL. A DRAMATIC TOUCH WAS THE EDGING WITH BLACK BIAS BINDING.
