It may be crunchy, crackly silk or a soft, sleek silk. The shapes that It takes are many. It's shown in jacket dresses, in slim suits and in suits with wide skirts. Often, this wide skirt Is pleated. It appears for late-day in company with crinolines and for evening in drifting or crispy bouffant gowns, both long and short lengths. Blue, in shades of the sea, of a bird's wing, of the sky or the plumage of a peacock, is a big spring color. So it's shown in shimmering silk. But silk also tales to gray this season. Town suit by Eisenberg (left) Is in pure si)k gray herringbone sur- rah.
