Dior House Launches Fashion Bombshell New York Time* News Service PARIS — The House of Dior launched a new fashion bombshell Monday. Not as startling perhaps as the one called the New Look back in 1947—that would be too much lo expect. But given the uneasy state of fashion it is certainly welcome, i The New Look put Paris back on the fashion map after World: j1*1111/' war II, and it left its mark on clothes women wore for a decade thereafter. This one may return to the couture some of the prestige it has lost to ready to wear. It’s the New Look with modern comfort. Would Be Proud What Marc Bohan has contributed to fashion for next spring, and conceivably for the next year or two, is a new shape.

The truth is, Bohan, having established his theme, carried it throughout the collection. There was a loose, smock-like raincoat, two-piece dresses with sleeves like scarves falling in points from the shoulders. B’s not that he designed never-seen-before clothes. He’s picked up ideas that are In the air. that other designers have played around with. But, he has put them together with such authority and such pleasing results that he may very well change the shape of fashion. At least, he has given the couture a reason for its existence. Actually, it’s been not a bad destinies of Dior since the early day for the couture. Jean-U)uise 1960s. First off, skirts have been lengthened, to about midcalf. Second, skirts have been widened.

It was clear that the clothes would be suitable for Rose Kennedy, the Duchess of Windsor and other couture eus- Philippe Venet’s show is modest by Paris couture standards, and so are his clothes. White coats over pale crepe dresses may look unassuming, but they are pretty luxurious, when you come to think about it.
