Two years ago, they flew to Paris with their designs in a bid for world recognition with the California version of the "New Look." Last year they tried again with their Centennial fashions. This time the San Pranclsco ap- 3ar«l industry Is going back to the 'basic clothes" for which it was known in other years. In place of Paris-inspired rounded shoulders, varying skirt lengths, wasp waists and bosom-exposing necklines, the San Francisco fall collections feature simple lines, padded shoulders, convertible necklines, and 13-Inch skirt lengths. Example! Include Lilll Ann's basic i'ool gabardine suit, highlighted only by the sheen of nist gabardine and tiny self-same buttons, plus turn-back pockets, or Lenora's ageless white satin formal with flared skirt, tight strapless bodice, and high-collared lacket. Even bathing suits reflect the trend. A simple" one by Oantner, for example, is a modest one-piece affair called a "rwimskln." It has a hip-control sw«, ter cuff and (its they say. like a two-way stretch. In most of the collections, the price tag is as simple as the "basic" look. Typical is the "Prima Donna" dress, designed by Hal Madsen and so-called because of the way it takes to furs, flowers or jewelry. In wool and rayon blend, it has a bolero top and a narrow hemlined skirt which show a reversion to several popular trends of the last few years. It will sell for just under $15. "H Isn't that we lack imagination," explained Adolph Schuman president of the west coast suit and coat makers. "We just want to sell clothes.
