Now young Stephen Burrows, one of the most creative of a new breed of designers, is stepping firmly into the integrity camp. Miss Cashin and Burrows showed their fall collections on the same day in a long lineup of openings, and it was a day to warm the hearts of women who want beautiful clothes to serve them well without worrying one whit about what's "in" or "out" of fashion. Miss Cashin always has considered a coat or a cape a "covering" or top layer for the body. Her new collection for Sills Co. includes some of the most beautiful coats, capes, flings, ponchos and jackets around anywhere -- in suedes, smooth leathers, poplins and unlined tweeds and mohair bound in suede or leather. They simply flow with the rhythm of the body, whether they're wrapped or hanging free. * * * SUITS HAVE easy jackets with what she calls "strider" skirts, enough fullness for movement and none longer than the bottom of the kneecap because she thinks this length makes the most sense for busy daytime living. She has ballerina-length skirts, but for after-business hours. There are lots of pants, and assorted layerings that she in- RROW RUG CO. -- ARROW troduced to contemporary fashion. There are splashes of bright colors for fall, but most of the collection is in subdued earth color shadings -- the kind you would never get tired wearing after 10 or 20 years. There are cashmere sweaters and jersey dresses to blend with all her wrap and suit shadings. There also are all sorts of "practical features," such as pocketbook pockets for your change and keys. How Can If Q. Kow can I, when painting red clay flowerpots, prevent the paint from later blistering and peeling off? A. First be sure the pot is absolutely clean and free of moisture, then paint the inside of the pot with aluminum paint, and let dry hard. Finish the outside of the pot with a high grade of enamel, and let this harden before fining the pot with earth. Burrows, who started out as a marvelous fashion savage in the late '60s and has disciplined himself without losing his spirit, is doing cold weather coats for the first time -uncontrived coverings that wrap around the body. He has one in long and short versions -- with the yoke extending into the sleeves and no seam in the body of the coat. He has marvelous cashmere and velour capes to wrap yourself in, and great little tweed suits trimmed in multicolor leather sculptures. BURROWS IS famous for shaping garments in sculptures of many colors, often seven or eight, and this goes right on in his matte and wool jersey one - and two-piece dresses and pants outfits. Much of the collection is in matte jersey, for day and night, and matte jersey, chiffon and silk for evening for year-round wear. While he's still doing hot color mixtures, he's also doing incredibly delicate and masterful mixing of subtle tones that are comfortable to live in for £ long, long time. You don't even think of lengths at Burrows. They're whatever looks right for the silhouette and color combinations. Logically, as Burrows has matured in his own approach to dressing women in today's life, his clothes are reaching out to a wider range of customers. In the early days they were for skinny fashion rebels. Although some of his styles are still only for the skinny, many others are for any woman with a halfway decent body who has the taste and confid- ence to be a real fashion individual. Many of his evening gowns and pajamas flow around the body in tiers, beautiful to see and comfortable to wear. As for his color mixtures, whether subtle or bold, they are simply great works of art.
