  • Description

    Furs and feathers were featured in Pierre Balmain's autumn and winter fashion collection displayed in Paris this month.

    Pierre Balmain's collection underlines his role as the master of timeless elegant clothes. This year he has chosen long midcalf hemlines on dresses and coats edged with ostrich feathers. Patricia paraded a coat rimmed in fox-fur using tweed as the basic fabric with matching boots.

    Culottes were not forgotten by Balmain who used them in a purple outift for the display. Matching hats were included with several ensembles.

    Formal occasions provide Balmain with the opportunity to create elegant evening and afternoon dresses.

    A coral and gold muslin dress with embroidered collar was modeled by Eva.

    Many of the dresses in slim crepe had a feeling of the 1920's including an apricot dress with brown embroidery displayed by Karin. Lame over-printed in red, green and orange was featured in an evening gown modeled by Patricia.

    The final dress displayed was a creation named "Scala" -- a dress in muslin with velvet cutouts and ostrich feather trimmings. In this year's collection, as always, Pierre Balmain managed to catch the style of the sophisticated woman of the world.
