    MATTLI, THE LONDON FASHION DESIGNER, HAS JOINED OTHER COUTURIERS IN OPENING THE 1970'S WITH THE NEW BELOW-THE-KNEE MIDI LOOK, MIDWAY BETWEEN THE MINI AND THE MAXI. MATTLI'S SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTION, SEEN IN LONDON TODAY, WERE SIMILAR IN MANY ASPECTS TO THE HARDY AMIES FASHIONS PRESENTED EARLIER THIS WEEK.

    FOR EVENING WEAR, MATTLI FEATURED FLOATING AND VERY FEMININE SILKS, WORN OVER TROUSERS OR MADE INTO FLATTERING CULOTTE DRESSES. SELECTED WIGS COMPLEMENT THE FABRICS.

    AMONG THE COLLECTION ON SHOW WAS A BROWN AND WHITE PRINTED WOOL SUIT OF MID, LENGTH. THE JACKET WAS VERY SHORT WITH A HIGH WHITE LEATHER BELT. TOPPING IT OFF, A MATCHING WHITE STRAW-EDGED HAT, TRIMMED WITH BROWN RIBBON.

    NEXT A DAY OUTFIT FOR ASCOT OR SUMMER GARDEN PARTIES. IT WAS MADE UP OF AN ELEGANT BLACK AND WHITE PRINTED SLEEVELESS COTTON COAT, WORN OVER A CHALK WHITE DRESS, ALSO IN COTTON AND WITH A MATCHING BAND AT THE KNEE-LENGTH HEMLINE.

    ONE EVENING DRESS WAS A PURPLE PRINTED SILK BILLOWING AT THE BACK AND DEEPLY SLASHED IN FRONT TO REVEAL PURPLE ORGANZA TROUSERS. THE OTHER WAS A DELICATE DRESDEN BLUE PRINTED GIZELLE EVENING DRESS WITH EMBROIDERED BODICE AND WIDE FLOATING BACK. AGAIN THE FRONT PARTED TO REVEAL MATCHING TROUSERS.
