  • Description

    NOW THE WOMEN HAVE SORTED OUT THEIR STYLES FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER OF '66, HERE'S CHANCE TO SEE WHAT THE WELL-DRESSED MEN WILL BE WEARING. THIS FASHION SHOW TOOK PLACE TODAY AT THE PAVILLON D'ARMENONVILLE IN THE BOIS DE BOULOGNE, PARIS. THE SHOW HAD AN INTERNATIONAL LOOK WITH MODELS FROM WEST GERMANY, SPAIN, AUSTRIA, ITALY, HOLLAND, GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE AND SWEDEN WEARING CLOTHES WHICH ORIGINATED FROM THEIR HOME COUNTRIES.

    THE SPANISH MODEL WEARS "WEEK-END." IT'S AGAIN FOR CASUAL WEAR IN VERY LIGHT GREY AN WHITE STRIPES. GONE ARE THOSE SKIN-TIGHT TROUSERS -- THESE ARE A MORE COMFORTABLE FIT WITH SLIGHTLY FLARED BOTTOMS.

    YOU MIGHT BE TAKEN FOR A FRENCH POLICEMAN, AT FIRST GLANCE, WEARING THIS FOUR-PIECE ENSEMBLE FROM AUSTRIA. THE OFFICER STYLE CAPE REVEALS A HIGH TUNIC JACKET -- JUST THE THING FOR TRAVELLING.

    THIS THREE-PIECE IS FOR MOTOR-TRAVEL. THE HIGH-OUT BACK-BELTED JACKET KEEPS THE COLD OR DUST OUT AND BENEATH THE JACKET IS A LIGHT-WEIGHT BLAZER. THE BLAZER HAS NO COLLAR -- TYPICAL OF THE SMOOTH ITALIAN STYLE IT REPRESENTS.

    HOLLAND SHOWS A RATHER FORMAL DUTCH SUIT FOR CITY-WEAR. ONCE AGAIN THE JACKET IS RATHER HIGH-CUT AND NOTE THE RAZOR CREASES IN THE TROUSERS.

    CLASSICAL, SOMBRE, DISCREET -- THERE'S NO NEED TO ASK WHERE THIS SUIT COMES FROM -- IT'S THE LONDON BUSINESSMAN'S DISGUISE FOR THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME...BUT PERHAPS THIS WOULD ADD A DASH OF ELEGANCE TO THOSE MEN WHO HANDLE MILLIONS.

    PIERRE CARDIN'S HAND IS BEHIND THIS ELEGANT FLARED JACKET, BELTED AT THE BACK, WITH WAISTCOAT AND TROUSERS. IT WAS, OF COURSE, THE FRENCH CONTRIBUTION TO THE DISPLAY.

    AND FINALLY FROM SWEDEN A DRAPED JACKET FOR EVENING WEAR WITH CONTRASTING TROUSERS. NOTE THE UNUSUAL BUTTON FASTENING.

    IT SEEMS THAT WHILE WOMEN'S SKIRTS GET SHORTER MEN'S JACKETS ARE GETTING OLDER, AND IF THE MEN ARE BRAVE ENOUGH, WELL THEY CAN WEAR AS MANY COLOURS AS THEY LIKE.
