  • Description

    DESIGNER PIERRE CARDIN PRESENTED HIS 1969 FASHIONS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) BY COMPROMISING ON THE MAXI VS THE MINI ISSUE - HE PRESENTED THE MAXI-MINI FASHIONS. LONG COATS OVER SHORT DRESSES AND SKIRTS; AND SHORT SKIRTS OVER CHIN-TO-TOE JUMP SUITS.

    PIERRE CARDIN IS A COUTURIER WHOSE FASHIONS ARE ALWAYS EXCITING AND MODERN. WITH THE EYES OF THE FASHION WORLD FIXED ON PARIS THIS WEEK FOR A DEFINITE ANSWER ON WHETHER MAXIS OR MINIS WERE IN OR OUT - HE HAS SHOWN THAT BOTH ARE STILL VERY MUCH IN.

    FOR THE MINI - HE PRESENTED FREEDOM AND MOVEMENT WITH LOOPS ATTACHED TO BOSOM AND HIPS OVER A SHORT PLAIN BLACK DRESS. OR, FOR THE MORE ATHLETIC-MINDED, A CHIN-TO-TOE CAT SUIT WITH A BLACK MINI-OVERSKIRT.

    EVEN FOR WINTER - MINIS ARE ON CARDIN'S LIST WITH AN ORANGE FLUFFY COAT WITH MATCHING HEADGEAR.

    THE MAXIS ARGUMENT IS SUPPORTED BY A WHITE WOOL SHIRT WHICH FEATURES A WIDE BELT AND ONE OF THE HEAVY CONIC BUCKLES WHICH HE HAS REPEATED THROUGHOUT HIS RANGE THIS YEAR. IN CONTRAST - HE PAIRED IT WITH A MODEL IN A VERY MINI-GREEN WOOL JUMPER DRESS OVER MATCHING TIGHTS.

    THE MAXI-MINI LOOK WAS BEST EXEMPLIFIED BY A WHITE MAXI COAT WITH BLACK PLASTIC TRIM OVER A MINI MATCHING SKIRT - AND BLACK PATENT LEATHER BOOTS.

    EVEN IN EVENING WEAR THERE WAS A SHADE OF COMPROMISE - A SALMON-COLOURED SEQUIN GOWN WAS SLIT TO GIVE A "MINI-GLIMPSE" OF THE KNEE.

    THE GENERAL THEME OF CARDIN - AS IT HAS BEEN IN THE PAST - WAS THE LONG, LEAN, LEGGY LOOK. SPACE TRAVEL AND THE MOON SHOT ARE SAID TO HAVE INSPIRED HIM TO "SPACE-AGE FASHIONS". FOR THIS, HE HAS USED A LOT OF METAL, CHUNKY BUCKLES, LEATHER AND PLASTIC TRIMS. FLARES AND STRIPS OF MATERIAL COMBINE WITH HEAD-HUGGING CAPS. AND THE MAKEUP WAS DESCRIBED AS "MARTIAN".
