1C -My 20,1975 Stutdhnr Guette-JfcuJ Chtntafift, 1MW Inside Fashion Adolfo: 'Not China of Today' By Engetk Skcpparf NEW YORK-What will be next fall's most popular uniforms? Though Adolfo showed his new fall made-to-order collection for'the first time the other day at the St. Regis, he already knows some of the answers. Number one is his contour conscious long crochet dinner dress with a slightly Chinese look about the mandarin collar and the silk frog fastenings at the neck. Mary Miragliotta Marries G. P. Watkins on Saturday Miss Mary F. Miragliotta, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Miragliotta of 2389 Savory Dr., became the bride of George P.

Other versions in navy and white or beige and brown are scattered around the country from coast to coast. A casual cardigan sweater in the same colors always completes each costume. The Oriental look is nothing new to Adolfo. He has always liked it, but he goes farther this year in jackets of genuine Chinese brocade with marabou feathers. They are cut short with kimono sleeves and worn over long knit sheaths. "They are old Chinese, classical but exotic. They are not at all the China of today," says Adolfo. * * * THE CHINESE jacket is just part of his plan to provide his customers with the evening separates that they seem to like so much. Last spring he sold his hand- painted organdie pinafores and picturesque blouses to at least 300 women for $695 each. His equavalents for fall, he hopes, are long wraparound skirts of velvet in deep brilliant colors that he likes with long- sleeved blouses of chiffon that shade from pale to dark. The pair can become a trio with a braid-bound, velvet bolero and a foursome with velvet slacks. Not all his customers, though, are in the mood for separates, so Adolfo provides them with chiffons that are right out of the late shows. Made in a marvelous dirty no- color that he calls absinthe, they have glittering beaded tops, shoestring straps and skirts cut in uneven, handkerchief points. Sheaths, both long and short, are real flapper dresses, band-beaded from neck to hem by Adolfo's Oriental work team. The daytime uniform in Adolfo's collection is the crochet suit that his customers buy fresh every season. Adolfo, who never kids himself, has always acknowledged his debt to Chanel. Some of the latest versions have her classical, shortish, swinging jacket, one with a contrasting stitch around the edge to look like braid and a longer version with an already crocheted in belt, though Adolfo likes a real one worn over it. His latest has an art nouveau pattern, crocheted in three colors down the front. * * * IN THE collection, Adolfo also likes full- length crochet coats, tweedy gray and brown mixtures that have long collars of badger or fox. They are worn over matching dresses. One thing Adolfo doesn't have to worry about is customers who insist on exclusive designs. Except when they ask for a special neckline or color, Betsy Bloomingdale, Jan Cdwles and Nan Kempner don't mind the least bit. meeting their best friends at the same party in the same dress. It's better by the dozen, they believe.

Not for lack of young dreamers, anyway, reports the Institue of Life Insurance. Here is what the Institute found in a 1974 survey of people between the ages of 14 and 25 when it asked them to rank items by how essential they were to have in the future: "Ownership of a home" as at the top of the list for young Americans. Next in order of preference were: a pension plan, a savings account of at least $5,000; life insurance amounting to at least $50,000; a college education. Rounding off the list of selections were: a new car, an air air-conditioned home, an opportunity to travel abroad, a stereo system, a master's degree, a color TV set and a dishwasher. According to the Institute, which has been surveying young people since 1970, there is a trend toward more "conventional" lifestyle preferences. For example, in a 1974 survey, 43 per cent of young males questioned predicted that within 15 years, their lifestyle would be that of an executive or professional. Only 34 per cent predicted this lifestyle for themselves in 1970. Team our shirts and slacks. Both 20% off Sale 12.80 Reg. $16. Long sleeve shirt jacket is texturized woven polyester suraline.
