THE ALTOONA MIRROR—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1929 \~ m imir •"•""—"jf WIDE USE OF FUR WINTER STYLES They Are An Important Decorative Medium In the New Modes — Furs Not Mode for Evening Wear. By JEAN I.ITOIT, Written for NBA Service. PARIS, Nov. 8.— A wider use of fur as a decorative medium has undoubU edly proved a great asset as well as a new source of Inspiration in the creation of winter styles. Uhtil a' few years ago the treatment of pelts remained In the restrained domain of fur specialists and Its ilrial adaptation was then rather lost sight of. A judicious selection of skins, a clever manner of setting them off- calling for great knowledge and technique — was the only part • the furrier was called upon to playi As he seldom lived In ah atmosphere of "fash- Ions," It never occurred to him that he might raise his Industry to that of a fashion creator. Models offered by a furrier were then usually synonymous with luxurious' ness and what we termed "classical" in style. They were rarely smart and seemed to be solely created to look sumptuous. This order of things now has changed. The couturier with modern, sobn realized the necessity of assimilating as much of the complex technique of the furrier as possible ahd the modern furrier endeavored to reaoh that degree of perfection h'e has attained today. The result is that fur is no longer employed mainly as' a .protection against the cold. It contributes largely to the artistic element' of styles - ^B&l: simply in the nature of a trlm- ^itig, but as one of the important fac- tbrs. Although this season we shall see fewer all-fur coats than ever -before, the various uses made of fur &re steadily Increasing. You will often find that the movement and line' in /ai winter coat are accentuated by the fur trimming. It contributes and _ asserts its original cut or outlines a 'special feature. Remove this trimming and the model loses most of its qualities. The ' leading role of fur In winter styles, however, is to contribute that element of softness lackfng in the more sombre fabrics. There is no more fitting and becoming frame for a feminine face than a fur collar. This was proved effectively at the beginning of the season when fur-trimmed hats •were launched with great success. Every couturier will acknowledge. that the use of fur on (summer clothes was considered a difficult technical point. It called for all the art of the creator, as it needed to harmonize with both line and fabric and yet had to be used in such a 'subtle manner as not to evoke winter styles. This season I found that just, as much art and technique was needed, in spite of the fact that I had a greater selection of both pelts and fabrics at my command, as well as many more color combinations. One of the outstanding features of my winter collection has been the abundance of fur. not only a.s a trimming but in the guise of short jackets and fur coats forming an ensemble with certain dresses. Practical, modern woman can no longer be hampered when walking or shopping by a long, almost invariably too heavy fur coat. It was nearly always too warm and uncomfortable. The short fur jacket is the happier solution, providing the requisite comfort and being a happy substitute for the warm tailored suit. Strangely enough, 'costly furs such as sables, ermine and chinchilla seem to be abandoned nowadays by smart women for evening wear. WAB HOUSE. •LONDON, Nov. 8. — Even war Is becoming a matter of mechanics. A vehicle, perfected here is designed to replace horses on the battlefield. It will turn around in nearly Its own length, ford a. stream, pass through barbed wire entanglements and climb a 45-degree slope. It pulls a trailer and can be operated by two men. BOON TO MOTORISTS. LONDON, Nev. 8.— A British process of rendering non-inflammable celluloid plastic and converting It into liquid forms a new boon to motorists.
