The hemline is fairly short -- two to three inches below the knee. jalso, of reds and greens. Lachesse, new to the "big ten' 1 this year, shows the most eye- catching of these curved lines, with upstanding "cloak - and- dagger" collars sweeping across to a point on one shoulder. He sets them in all sizes on coats, suits and dresses. Mattli calls his the "Chasuble" line and emphasizes it with rounded hemlines, side - split jackets and Important pockets.

Rich LInlngrs Victor Stiebel's topcoat shows another variation. It has a curved yoke extending to loose bell sleeves. The back Is fairly full and the shoulders slope like a bottle Nearly all the houses show reversible coats or conts lined in rich colored satin, often with a skirt to match the lining topped by an embroidered cashmere jersey Hardy Amies achieves a beautiful effect with a copper taffeta dress under a black wool coat lined with the same material. The dress Is swathed to a huge bow over one hip, the skirt full. Spot . proof, crease - resisting velvet is the vogue for every hour of the day. Peter Russell uses it In flamingo pink for velvet dressy coats over black town frocks.
