Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July IT, 1970 TH[ LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Mini Length Out Of Sight, Midi Everywhere High Fashion Trends For Fall And Winter chunky coun- try look was featured In the final show of London's autumn and winter 1970 high fashion season. Lachasse's day wear drew comments of "sensible" and "useful" from little old ladies in pink and powder blue. Suits straight from the attic domi- nated the show, with gently waisted jackets, velvet appli- ques and pleats everywhere but not a sexy split in sight. Amies and Mattli, on the other hand, produced young, el- egant collections. LINES FLUID With hemlines two to four inches below the knee, the de- signers agreed to stress slender- ness and fluidity. There was little to enliven the uniformity of silhouette by day. Colors were muted and shad- owy: Shades of off-white and brown, dusky pinks and wine dominated all collections, with a dash of Chinese yellow and vi- olet at Mattli. Skirts slit centrally to the knee were favorites for day- wear. Bared bosoms shared the night honors with snug sweater tops and cover-up classics. Interest Was focused on soft- ness of line and texture. Wool crepe was popular for street wear, with printed wools and jersey running close seconds. Clouds of chiffon, silk crepe and gentle georgette swept in the soft look after dark. PARIS (AP) Christian Dior fall and winter fashion collection, designed by Marc Bohan, today stuck to its time tested theme of elegance and wearability. Fabulous fabrics and finest furs were used for an effect of pure luxury. Dior's daytime hemlines are all at mid calf length. An important group of coats followed a fitted silhouette flar- ing out toward the midcalf hem' line. The length was dropped to the ankles fof evening. The waistlines of these coats were always marked by a fabric or leather belt' or half belt in the back. PARIS (AP) Courreges brought couture prices down from the stars as he presented three different lines at his fall ami winter collection today. "This collection includes three WITH PANTS This belted suit with divided pant skirt in brown leather embroidered and trimmed in leopard skin is by Philippe Venet and was shown in Paris as he launch- ed his fashions for the fall and winter of 1970. Topping the creation is a fitted hood. Why Do You Read So Sloidy?

"The first, which I call hyper- bole, starts at "It's for a girl with a limited budget. The second group, cou- ture future, is priced under The third group is haute couture." He named no price for the haute couture, but a lighted panel registered a long row of zeros. PARIS The girls wore loose soft short hair', side parted, the right side held back with a large white button. Courreges has killed off his colored nylon wigs. All girls wore a strip of fabric for a dog collar, red or white for daytime, color1 or white for evening. By LUCIE NOEL PARIS (AP) Coco Chanel showed her usual special styles at the fashion showings for fall and winter and managed to make them look new. Hemlines were at the usual Chanel length of two inches below the knees. Classic cardi- gan suits abound, many in red, navy and white tweed with red binding. Chanel's biggsst news is the waist-length cropped jacket. It has a bolero look in the flat- tened front but is shaped in at the sides. It appears from tweeds through velvet, faced in white satin reverse. PARIS (AP) Pierre Bal- main feels his current mid-calf silhouette has been rightly timed. So no modifications are made, but he evolves his ideas for through handsome tweeds, wool jerseys, soft and supple crepes and fluid gold or silver brocades and lame weaves. Over skinny fitted dresses, long-sleeved and built up at the necklines, Balmain's "lady all in tweed" wears beautifully-tai- lored coats treated to swinging flared lines. In pliable, coarsely woven pepper and tweeds or king- size crowsfoot checks, he presents capes and coats featur- ing deep borders of fox and huge comfortable collars. Mink trimming appears for after dark. PARIS (AP) -Jacques Es- terel- who designed summer dresses for men, is following suit for fall and winter 1970. At his first showing this morning, mannequins of both sexes were wearing hemlines seven inches from the ground. "Elegance means feeling good in your said Esterel, who is fighting "anachronistic ta- boos." His latest discovery is the bodystocking, to be deco- rated with bermudas, capes, boleros or necklaces. For a wedding, his bride and groom were twinned in flesh- colored bodystockings under sec-through white maxi dresses encrusted with gold and orange sequins. For day, Esterel believes in robes with immense floppy hoods or capes whose sleeves are slit and trail to midcalf. Midcalf pants or skirts, for men and women, are slit almost to the waists. Colors are provoca- tive contrasts of burgundy, plum, mustard, red and olive green. iff WATER CONDITIONING (leth.) LTD. 120D North M.M. Driv. Ph. NOTICE!

The fashion season had open- ed with a bump and a grind. To the boom of primitive music, nine "exotic dancers" at Uie Crazy Horse Saloon dis- played the creations of a group of 12 high-fashion accessory makers. Under blinding red and blue lights, the girls did a strip- tease, gyrating and chewing gum to the beat, gradually toss- ing aside their black leather loincloth-belts and mesh stock- ings until only Tyrolian cutstone necklaces and dangling earrings remained. By JEANNE CONTINIV ROME (AP) Despite the tide of long skirts sweeping in, Tiziani does not see 'the active modern woman abandoning pants. In his collection, shown Satur- day night, pleated Culottes and gaucho pants midi, naturally were a strong feature. They were topped by dashing capes, jackets or jerkins over sweaters, and worn with suede boots and visored caps. One of the best by the Texas- born designer, Evan Richards, better known as Tiziani, was a double-faced browri wool cape- lined in brown and white win- dow pane c h e c k s to match pleated culottes. Also there was a hip-length belled; suede jerkin over a white ribbed turtleneck pullover. The coats were fitted and widely flared, often with double martingale-back belts. Antonelli's collection, shown Sunday, was a deft reprise of late 1930s look. Girls in slick, tweed-belted suits with modified square shoulders and box-pleated skirts were muffled to "the ears in fluffy fox boas. Suits were shown -with classic white shirts and big felt hats with brims turned up in front. Lots of rust, pearl grey, brown and white. Antonelli kept street hemlines at mid-calf, and showed late- day midis about five inches above the ankle. The distinction is a good one. The best of the glamor clothes were soft and supple. A stand- out was a dully-glinting silvery jersey dress with dolman sleeves, bare back, clinging at the hip and opening into un- pressed deep pleats. t By JULIE FLINT LONDON (AP) Hardy Amies, the Queen's dressmaker, took the matronly look out of the midi. in his autumn-winter preview. The new length is definitely in London's high fashion houses, although the mini is alive and well and living in the streets of London. Like Amies, Mattli sur- rendered unconditionally to the longer line. Amies scuttled the mini in 19fiR and believes that the trade was "stupid" to ignore the midi for so long. "You can't do much with a he said. PARIS (AP) Givenchy's winter collection Friday, which climaxed a week of Paris fash- ion showings, was the ultimate in elegance. He updates sports clothes and glamorizes them in luxury fab- rics with masses of leather and suede. The everyday sweater and skirt crash social barriers for wear at every hour and appear in lightest wools with gener- ously cut out round necks for daytime. For evening, satin and sheers step onto the scene. The skirts are suede, sometimes in wool, and black velvet for evening. Queen Alexandra dog collars are worn throughout. Jet or pearl beads in four'tight rows ,cok lovely. ROME (AP) Fabiani has brought up to date the pyramid coat that made him famous. The new version was midi ength with controlled fullness back which it fell like a thrown-back cape from the shoulder seams or front a jack yoke. It came in rust wool, .n double-breasted grey tweed, in black broadcloth. There were also straight slim pants ensembles with fingertip in menswear worsted with velvet shirts. Fur coats of opposum or wolf, with skins worked vertically and then horizontally at the tern, were belted in beaded and tassled leather thongs. A number of jacquard wools were used in coats, as was printed wool. The best print was a black pattern of high-tension wires on a brown background. Late-day dresses had hand- kerchief hemlines, occasionally layered like petals. They came in black wool, capucine or smoke-grey chiffon, the two- tone lace that is popular. A monkey fur maxi cape had a cavalier collar and cuffs of lace edged in white satin; ROME (AP) Figures are back in style. That's the chief message carried by Italy's best designers. Men who mourn the passing of the rnmi, and dead it is, should take heart. Granted the 56 couture houses whose au- tumn-winter showings wound up recently were unanimous about longer hemlines, but there also were 56 varieties of the sort of sexy allure that leaves some- thing to the imagination. In the first place, some of the long skirts were slit front or side to show a provocative glimpse of leg. MADRID (AP) Spain's fall-winter fashion collection has opened with a display of skin- animal and human.

Super-supple pouches and satchels emphasize height and vertical lines intended to bal- ance long hemlines. Styles ranged from pouches, reticules and knitting bags gathered on a drawstring, tra- peze shapes, and pony express and saddle bags designed with multiple compartments. They have the common de- nominator of a larger size and more spacious interior than be- fore, though the effect is usually flat in profile worked with deep side pleats that expand as necessary. Shoulder straps are still om- nipresent, although they have been lengthened to drop the bag to waist or hip level to balance longer skirts. rr -I C" Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: What's happening to people any- way?
