  • Description

    FROM NORMAN HARTNELL, BRITAIN'S ROYAL DRESSMAKER - A NEW COLLECTION OF HAUTE COUTURE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) BEGUN THE LONDON SPRING SHOWINGS. THOUGH STYLISH AS EVER, HIS NEW FASHIONS REVEAL NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGES.

    "THE RICH GET RICHER" ... THAT WAS HIS NAME FOR A DRESS AND JACKET IN WHITE, GOLD AND BRONZE SHADES. IT WAS FINISHED WITH MINK CUFFS, SHADED TO MATCH.

    ONE NOTICEABLE FEATURE WAS THE INCREASED USE OF BRIGHT CLEAR PASTEL COLOURS - A TREND WELL SHOWN IN "OUT TO GRASS". PERHAPS INTENDED FOR ASCOT, WHERE INTEREST LIES IN THE FASHIONS JUST AS MUCH AS THE HORSES, THIS WAS A WHITE SILK DRESS EMBLAZONED WITH MULTI-COLOURED FIELD FLOWERS.

    BOTH EVENING DRESS AND COCKTAIL CLOTHES KEPT CLOSE TO THE FIGURE. AS, FOR INSTANCE, "FANDANGO" - A RIBBON DRESS WITH FLUTED HEMLINE AND, CHARACTERISTIC OF HARTNELL. THAT CERTAIN DASH AND SWAGGER. IT SHOWED ITSELF HERE WITH A SEPARATE CAPE COLLAR.

    "OASIS" - AND ONCE AGAIN, A MASTERFUL USE OF COLOUR. TRUE TO ITS THEME. THIS MODEL IN SILK SHANTUNG MAKES GOOD USE OF A SAND AND WHITE ZEBRA-STRIP PRINT. IT'S TOPPED OFF WITH A TURBAN.
