  • Description

    A LONDON FASHION TODAY (WEDNESDAY) GAVE WOMEN A LOOK A WHAT THEY'LL HAVE TO WEAR IN THE WAY OF LINGERIE AND NIGHTCLOTHES IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE FASHIONABLE IN THE SPRING OF 1968.

    IN THE CORSETRY RANGE, THERE WAS A PRINTED NYLON BRA WITH PREFORMED WIRE UNDERCUPS. IN NIGHTWEAR, THE ACCENT WAS ON FRILLS AND FRIVOLITY. A MINI NIGHTDRESS WITH A BRA TOP OVER A SHEER SKIRT AND FRILLED HEMLINE GAVE THE GENERAL LINE.

    THE CAMILOT WAS A NEW IDEA IN DAYWEAR...A BRA-CULOTTE-SLIP...THREE GARMENTS DESIGNED TO MAKE ONE LACY PIECE OF UNDERWEAR.

    AND THERE WAS A MATCHING PRINTED NYLON BRA WITH WIRED CUPS. HOUSECOATS WERE ALSO ON SHOW, FROM PRINTED COTTON SHORTIES TO A UMBER THAT WAS ALMOST A DRESS. THE MANUFACTURERS HOPED THEY'D REPLACE THE DRESSING GOWNS THAT WOMEN HAVE WORN FOR SO LONG.

    FOR WEARING UNDER ONE OF THE NEW HOUSECOATS..A CORSELETTE IN PRINTED LYCRA WITH UNUSUAL CUTAWAY SIDES AND LOW BACK.

    BUT THERE'S ALWAYS TIME TO HARKEN BACK TO THE CLOTHING WOMEN WORE IN THE PAST.....TODAY'S SHOW INCLUDED AN EMPIRE LENGTH NIGHTDRESS WITH PLENTY OF LACE AND A DISTINCT VICTORIAN AIR.
