By Kpsie Klnard .\K\ fashion Ktlllor NEW YORK —(NBA)— The exotic flavor that spices up Mrs. America's fall wardrobe conies from the Far East and from countries as far west, north and south as a globe-trotting designer could travel. Tina Lescr is the gypsy who circled the world and came back w i t ii dolls, paintings, ceremonial robes, peasant costumes and ideas for a rich, colorful and inspired collection. Results are fashions influenced by people, scenery, customs, priceless objects of art an native costumes seen in Italy, France, England. Ireland, India. China, Japan, Slam and other countries of the Far East. The geisha gili's kimono ,t h e Japanese woman's "mompi." a *» d Japanese ceremonial robes inspired the at-home fashions Miss Leser lanuches in sur..ptuous fabrics. One Japanese-styled kimono which stages Its come-back in pure silk brocade Is wrapped with an obi sash and is bosom-embroidered with circles of gold thread. Such decorative motifs come courtesy of handsome Japanese gift wrappings which Miss Leser brought back. From Sisan—in particular from the costumes of Siamese dancers —come ideas for swag drapery and side pleats in plump clusters and unusual details which Miss Leser uses to create distinctive coats an dres,ses. : Borrowed from the satin skh of a Siamese dancer, for exanipl*'! is a swag of pleats which is swim J to the side of a skirl of a gree wool gabardine dress. The belt t this otherwise simply styled out piecer fastens with a lyiK coppt buckle, and is ornamented with copi>er "shiva." a little Hindu syir'j bol which caught Miss Leser's fane on her Far East travels.
