Esterel and Feraud Hike Hemlines In Fashion Review By LUCIE NOEL PARIS (AP) - The Paris spring and summer fashion collections opened today with Esterel and Feraud both hiking the hemline three to five inches above the knees. Esterel delighted his audience by showing skinny narrow afghan or rajah pants with couturier styled dresses. The costume did double duty. First worn as a hostess outfit, the pants were dicarded and the dress was paraded for town wear with small brimmed millinery, gloves and handbag. Esterel introduces his collection with two" rhythms" — the first for street and city wear, he second "a little mad," he says, for sports. The city line follows a soft flowing flared silhouette. A bright red coat dress has cornet pockets and a pointed cowl collar in the front. A navy sheath and jacket are lined in lemon yellow and are softly tailored. Cinnamon, almond green, chef's mustard and navy blue are worked out with color contrasts or just plain. Esterel concentrates on sailing, automobile racing, cycling, beachwear and riding with different styles fo reach sport. Bermudas for cycling are laced up the sides, or skin tight and very brief. In beachwear he "dresses" bikinis with contrasting trousered legs, leaving the frilly-or-plain or bicolor G- string triangles outside. Louis Feraud concentrates on the young teen-ager ana unless you're built that way, his clothes are not or you. Feraud focuses on the leg, dressing it in a variety of ways, from plain hand-crochet style stockings to gaily striped hose on a white ground. His collection may be called a miniskirt line. class, two guests and five adults made the trip. After the movie, the group had dinner before returning to Osceola. If your family likes the flavor of sage (often used in poultry stuffing) you may want to add a little of this herb to the pastry you use for chicken Or turkey pies.
