-- August 13, 1972 Sunday -- -- - - -- - -- -Charleston, West Vli-flinl /'Vi.s/i/oii :\oir Richardson-Wandling Bridal Held Look of Quality Is Making Happy Return in Paris Styles By Patricia Khcltnn PAHIS--The Establishment now can stop all this messy business of trying to hide its age and its money. Maturity, propriety and the look of old money are all back in style in New York. Rome and, most of all. the Paris couture. If you're ready to look like a lady again, fall is going to be the season to do i t . Nobody is kidding anybody t h a t the whole world is going to jump out of its sportswear, especially its trousers, and into a more studied look in clothing. Nobody's even proposing it. They're simply offering us something more, and hoping to restore confidence in what used to be known as building a good, long-term wardrobe of high quality pieces. Here, as in New York and Rome, it all begins with the roomy coat that will go over anything from pants to a floor-length evening gown. It can be anywhere from jacket- short to fingertip to seven- eighths to just covering all the : knee-length hemlines. Armholes are deep, whether neat dolmans, raglans or set-ins. Midi and maxi coats are still around for cold and rainy weather. Next comes the suit, the important tweed or double- faced cashmere, with a short nr long jacket that can he blouson, boxy or fitted. Most skirls are straight or only ·slightly flared . After t h a t , the short cocktail dress. You'll see it bare and covered, in stiff gazar to filmy ruffled chiffon. Evening becomes opulent and glamorous again, with lots of glitter in embroidery and fabric and a trend to stiffer fabrics--less matte jersey and yards and yards of gazar, taffeta, faille, benga- line. ottoman and brocades. There's still plenty of chiffon, crepe and satin for softies. AM) TIIK day dress has a fighting chance for a change. The most popular one is still the shirt, cither with a marked waistline or as a chemise with or without a belt. But there are others--the bias body dress, the belted midriff with pleated flounce, the blouson with narrow or wide skirt. Everything looks expensive, even in the most conservative daytime styles, with all the cashmeres and double-faced fabrics. There are a lot of plaids and tweeds, but fewer prints and then usually small ones. There's every shade of gray known to man; a lot of black, brown and beige; bright red, bright green, bright blue, bright yellow, bright turquoise, and pastels that go from cool to hot. Fur is wrapped around necks, cuffs and coat borders night and day. Most of it is fox. There are a. lot of big sleeves, narrow belts, the return of the tunic or layered skirt, and what could make big waves in the American market for spring--the loose, sleeveless coat. Dior's play on a variety of short coats in high colors is almost a cinch to be picked up by the New York ready-to-wear houses. As for pants, don't let anybody tell you they're out- mooed. Paris couturiers are showing fewer of them, but they're still showing them day and evening. You'll find a big fresh supply of wide-legged pants in every couture boutique in Paris. PARIS A L W A ' Y S shows hats. Most of them are small, cloches and soft brims. Heels are climbing, usually about three inches for day and often higher for evening. Most day shoes are two-color ghillies or pumps on low platforms. For evening, silver, gold and dyed-to-match silks. Hair is neat, often in a short pageboy or pulled back into a chignon. Lips are bright, cheeks are rouged and eyes are defined by liner and smoky shadow, but not heavily. It's a quiet mood, despite its moments of showy, gaudy opulence. The brightest moments are at Ungaro, who pulled out of his confusion of recent seasons and showed a collection cf pretty, wearable clothes without a trace of the forties, fifties and sixties. American store buyers seem happy, and are predicting good days ahead for selling serious clothes again. However. John Norman, director of fashion information for Vogue patterns, said his buyers bad difficulty getting variety. "Kv- crything looks so much alike."
