  • Description

    WHILE EUROPE STILL ENDURES WINTER, A BRIGHT DIVERSION FROM THE GREY SKIES AND COLD WINDS HAS BEEN THE PREVIEW OF SPRING AND SUMMER FASHIONS IN PARIS. ANOTHER COUTURIER TO SHOW HIS 1964 COLLECTION HAS BEEN GUY LAROCHE, WHO GAVE A SHOWING EXCLUSIVELY FOR VISNEWS YESTERDAY. (WEDNESDAY).

    LIKE THE OTHER MAJOR PARIS FASHION DESIGNERS, GUY LAROCHE'S COLLECTION HAS AN EMPHASIS ON THE INFORMAL AND COLOURFUL, WITH A USE OF DEEP, RICH COLOURS AND A FREE USE OF TWEED IN PASTEL TONES FOR CREATIONS DESIGNED FOR BOTH STREET AND FORMAL WEAR. HE HAS ALSO GONE TO THE ORIENT FOR INSPIRATION IN HIS DESIGNS FOR PLAY AND HOUSE CLOTHES.

    GUY LAROCHE'S PLAY SUITS ARE PURELY ORIENTAL IN CONCEPTION WITH THE SIMPLE LINE OF THE JACKET AND TROUSERS OF THE INDO-CHINESE WOMEN RENDERED IN FAITHFUL DETAIL, HIS MATERIALS ARE SILKS IN REDS, GOLD AND GREEN. THE LONG TUNIC OF THE ORIENT HAS BEEN OFFERED BY OTHER DESIGNERS IN PARIS, AND DEMONSTRATES THE VENTUROUS SPIRIT OF THE COUTURIERS IN GOING YET FURTHER AFIELD FOR IDEAS.

    BUT WHETHER IT'S FROM GUY LAROCHE OR ANY OTHER SALON IN PARIS. THIS YEAR'S WARMER WEATHER IS LIKELY TO BE MORE COLOURFUL THAN EVER.
