On the Go A knit on the go is a marve- Mr. and Mrs. William Carl Lay Jr. Norman Norell Collection Is Nautical but Feminine By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Women who want, to sigh with joy over Norman Norell's spring collection will have to do a medley— "Anchors Away" and "I Enjoy Being a Girl." The nautical influence—brass buttons, embroidered anchors and middy blouses—predominated in the collection Norell previewed here this week. But no matter what the influence, the effect was overwhelmingly feminine. Tiny waists were emphasized by wide belts; full organdy skirts and puffed sleeves looked as delicate and delectable as cotton candy; and Swiss embroidery added a final dainty touch. All combined to make, it plain that Norell likes women who look like women—even if they slick their hair back severely as his models did. Variations on the nautical theme were evident at all lengths. Norell offered his black-tie audience a choice of just- floor-length, rhidcalf and above-the-knee skirts. For daytime, Norell showed the costume. Short jacket stopped just far enough above the waist to show a wide belt which, in turn, gave way to a gathered skirt, fuller in front than in back. Underneath, the models displayed turtle neck jerseys or blouses with huge, perky bows. Evening, Norell decreed, was the time to look definitely dainty. Yards and yards of organdy were gathered into puffed sleeves and skirts so full that women may have, trouble getting through doorways. Bows predominated—e i t h e r at the neck or at the back of brightly colored sashes. Color, to Norell, meant contrast. He offered a choice of file mariner's red, white and blue; the starkness of black and white or the shocking brightness of orange on white.
