  • Description

    "BY BEING TOO CHILDISH, A WOMAN EMPHASISES THE MARKS LEFT BY THE PASSING OF TIME". THIS RATHER SENTENTIOUS ADMONITION TO A WOMANKIND WANTONING WITH ITS INFANCY IS PARIS COUTURIER PIERRE BALMAIN'S WAY OF INTRODUCING HIS AUTUMN/WINTER FASHION DESIGNS.

    BALMAIN REJECTS THE 'YOUTH AT ANY PRICE' LOOK, HIS HEMLINES HOVERING AROUND THE KNEE, HIS COLOURS RETREATING FROM THE PSYCHEDELIC ABANDON OF POP FASHION TO THE DEPENDABLE MUTED SHADES OF RED, GREY, BROWN AND BLACK.

    'EXCLUSIVE' IS A WARM RED COCKTAIL DRESS, FEATURING ONE OF THIS YEAR'S INNOVATIONS, THE IRREGULAR HEMLINE. FLOWERS -- AGAIN IN RED -- BRING A HERBACEOUS BORDER TO THE LOWER PART OF THE DRESS.

    'PROUD' IS A DRESS AND COAT ENSEMBLE IN BLACK AND GOLD BROCADE. BROAD SHOULDERS ARE IN AGAIN, AND UNDER THE COAT, THE DECOLETE HAS MOVED ROUND TO THE BACK.

    BALMAIN HAS NOT BEEN UNAFFECTED BY THE POP SCENE, AND HAS ADAPTED MANY OF THE MORE EXOTIC TWO COLOUR TEAMINGS TO HIS OWN MUTED TONES. BLACK AND BROWN, OR BROWN AND BLACK, APPEAR OFTEN. 'FELINE', FOR INSTANCE, IS IN LACE, A CHESTNUT AND GOLD ENSEMBLE PICKED OUT WITH SEQUINS.

    'CONQUERANT' IS A SUIT IN CHESTNUT WEED. THE BLOUSE IS BROWN JERSEY, AND THE HAT SPORTS A PHEASANT FEATHER.

    FINALLY, 'ULTRA CHIC' IS IN WOOL, SLEEVES AND CRAVAT IN BLACK AND WHITE JERSEY. THE WAISTCOAST IS RECKLESSLY RED THE HAT FELT, THE STOCKINGS LACE.
