Shoppers Cautious Over Midi Trend By EDWIN HOSENTHAL LONDON (Reuters) Her legs are bare, brown and shapely, she comes from Hong Kong and the miniskirt suits her slender figure. Whatever Western fashion experts decree, millions of women in the Far East will continue to wear mini or mi- cro-miniskirts this summer. Even in London, birthplace of the miniskirt, the midiskirt which covers the knees is run- ning into opposition. Says a widely-syndicated British fashion editor: "I think the men will insist on minis simply because they are 100 per cent sexier." Designers in France, Brit- ain and the United States have been trying to bury the miniskirt with a series of fashion shows featuring the midi. WILL TAKE OVER The calculated guess of fashion writers, according to a Reuters survey, is that in Western countries the mini will dominate the scene only until the autumn when midis or maxis will take over. C a u t io u s Canadians are waiting to see what happens before they alter their hem- lines. In a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press, fash- ion experts said the midi wouldn't sell at least until fall, though maxi coats did well in the country's long, cold winter. Two Toronto stores have been running ads telling cus- tomers to relax and buy what they like. Holt Renfrew, a conserva- tive, high-priced store, held a Toronto fashion show recently in which about 60 per cent of the hemlines were long. There were noises of protest from the customers. Buyer Caroline Wiener says: "Fashion usually takes three years to come and stays three years. We had a few long things last year." Gail SaramaM, a city hall receptionist in Toronto who owns a midi coat, says she doesn't really like it, but it's fashion. IT'S STYLE "It looks ridiculous, espe- cially with platform shoes. My legs look like toothpicks, but it's style. "I like the coat, and it's a good coat, so it can be cut down. What the heck, you only live once. "Besides, a maxi just gets ruined and looks like a rag in no time, but you can run across a slushy street in a midi and it's all right." Even in Moscow, as the days lengthen and the weather warms up, girls have shed their coats to display skirts well above knee level. Midis have challenged the stot skirts but have not yet made much impact. Japan takes a practical atti- tude toward the skirt, situa- tion. Fashion experts there say the miniskirt is a 4-lo-l favorite this year because it pleases the men and suits the ladies 1'ar more than the midi or lend to make the diminutive Japanese, girl look dumpy. There also is confusion in West Germany about the style trends. In Bonn, basically a country town despite being the federal capital, the mini was never very mini. In Ham- burg, Berlin and Munich, skirts went much higher dur- ing the winter but we-e cov- ered by maxi coats. The Florence fashion shows In early April played up the tRIMMED IN SABLE This midl-length coat in green and black swakara is by Norman Rogul. The hemline is trimmed in black dyed Canadian sable and the coat is worn with a sable hood and boots. midi-length skirt. Most Italian designers predict that high- fashion showings in July will also feature, the midi. In Paris and New York, (he battle for the hemline indi- cates victory for the roidi lengtli-at least after the sum- mer. Frenchmen are almost unanimously against the inidi and the maxi, according to a survey by the French Institute of Public Opinion. Eighty-two per cent of the men interviewed voted for minis or skirts worn above the knee. A meagre four per cent said they like to walk down the street with a long- skirted woman. New York garment work- ers, representing tile second largest U.S. industry, vyel- eomed the midi as' a possible boost to sales following the first drop in production levels since 1960. In Sweden, where films have promoted an image of nudity in a permissive soci- ety, the miniskirt is still ex- tremely popular. Maxiskirts may warm as well as disguise a handsome pair of Swedish legs, but they became a nuis- ance last winter in Stock- holm's slushy streets. GIRLS PREFER MINI Swedish girls themselves prefer the so do their boy-friends. In Australia, young ladies have been lifting their skirt length higher than in most other places in the world. "It is too hot out here for midi or said one lovely, leggy Australian girl. Australian fashion designer Norma Tullo supports this view. Her spokesman said: "We will be including some maxis in our winter collection along with minis. In our sum- mer collection, we will not in- clude any maxis as Austral- ia's climate is too hot for them." Throughout the Far East, miniskirts appear to be the winners. Most girls in Hong Kong will stay faithful to the mini this year, mainly because of the hot tropical climate. Filipino men do not try to hide then- admiration for the mini, but some fashion ex- perts believe a compromise will be struck this year be- tween the mini and half-way says coutu- rier Pitoy Moreno.
