  • Description

    The French fashion couturier, Pierre Cardin, showed his new spring and summer fashions to the press and public in Paris on Wednesday (23rd January).

    The famous man of fashion described the clothes personally as models showed off his tailored day suits and dresses, and the more daring summer party clothes.

    Cardin used light knitted wools for his suits, printing them in sharp geometric patterns, or colouring them in strong primary shades. He also introduced what could be a new make-up fashion - yellow tints for the face and the lips.

    SYNOPSIS: In Paris on Wednesday, Pierre Cardin showed a waiting public his collection for 1974 spring and summer.

    The famous man of fashion, not content with second-hand reports, personally described the outfits he's offering for the warmer months. The fashion pundits predicted wider skirts, sometime gored, and lower hemlines.

    Cardin bore out some of the predictions this day dress, in a light wool fabric, showed a return to the romantic mood.

    The dropping hemline was greatly in evidence. Most day dresses and suits fell to about an inch below the knee. The skirt, out on the bias, features a drown-in waist. A short close fitting jacket completed the ensemble. The rising popularity of hats for day wear was reflected int he collection.

    For hot summer evenings, Cardin produced a mixture of the modest and the daring. He predicts the demic??? of jeans and trousers, and sees the well-dressed woman in long floating skirts for the evening. Again, he used a light weight wool for this outfit Cardin also introduced what could be a new fashion in make-up ...his models tinted their faces and lips yellow.
