Leathers Afoot For Spring '59 Are Ablaze With Glorious Colors LOU RAY'S Apparel STATE * FIFTH REDLANDS Color, in fiery, flashing tones, keynotes the new shoe styles for women this spring. Taking in a whole family of color — from geranium pinks to hot oranges, from bright blues to salad greens — shoes this season depend mainly on the beauty of the leather and hue for distinction. Leathers are softer than ever before. . . so soft and light, in fact, that you can almost see the toes move under them. Smooth leathers are sleek and shiny. Textured leathers have fine, light grains are highly polished. There ore lots of suede in bright colors. Beautiful aniline leathers that show the nalural markings of skin often are glazed or given a matte finish. Patent is as popular as ever in both black and bright colors — especially a brilliant, shiny red. Daytime shoes are cut high and straight with throats either straight or "V" shaped. Tailored pumps have new trim such as flat bows of real gold or silver, and unvarnished wood buttons. In spectators, the second color or texture of leather is applied in new and fancy shapes. Straps Everywhere There are straps galore on all kinds of shoes: T-straps, instep straps, double straps and sha |H .'d straps. There are more low, curvy heels on daytime shoes. Dress-up shoes are simple in shape, but flaunt imaginative trim ranging from large, life-like daisies and anemones to bunches of cherries (these on red patent), to jeweled wishbones. Colors arc bright and gay — with a new bright blue, a bright pink and vivid green leading the list. The most popular beige is a light bone shade, but there, arc some very dark beige — almost o light brown. Pastels shed their misty look and become strong and bright. Among them are petunia, a purply pink; a vibrant "hot" pink; coral; raspberry: and yellow. Some of these bright colors are touched off by a washable white leather sole. White will appear early, both alone and in combination with other colors. Some white shoes will have block leather soles. Textured white will continue popular. Black "n White Smart Fashion Pace This Year From Easter on, the fashion picture will reveal an interesting background to its many colors in a profusion of blacks and whites. In checks — from large to small, in pin dots or huge coin dots — in abstract prints or florals — in geometries or stripes, and in a host of textured tweed-type fabrics, black on white, and white on black will be used in exciting profusion. What wonderful accent-inviting combinations! Picture the exciting exclamation points of hot pinks, deep blues and blue greens — corals and red-tones to dramatize the simplicity of black 'n' white. Newly-important with these two tones are soft muted greens and glowing yellows. Glazed black leather is pointed up for newness as are the more traditional shiny patents. Jackets Latest Collection Fad Spring — and the style news hs jackets! Fashion-minded women now collect jackets as they collect sweaters. . , and for the same reason. . . their almost limitless wardrobe-stretching possibilities. Jacket! Riling Slender basic-looking dresses gain newness with the addition of one of spring's small, short cut jackets. There are collarless "coolie boy" styles, big collared models — rib cage to hip length, tailored cheeks to silk shantung, collared and collarless, floral prints and solid color wools. Cropped short at, or just above the hip. these imaginative new jackets look unbelievably smart over slim sheaths, billowing skirts, skinny pants or basic dresses. Finely detailed for a custom- made look, they are available in a rainbow range of colors to blend or contrast with every costume. Picture n pale-gold pure silk jacket, that dips to just below the waist, cut simply as a boy's and worn over a basic dress. Or, if you're in the mood for vivid color, try a white linen, waist length jacket with an exotic tropical pardon print accented in every shade of hot pink. With the Oriental influence apparent in every phase of spring 's newest fashions, a dramatic orange jacket lushly accented with black wool braid trim and black braid frogs can turn last year's sheath or skirt into a dramatic new season costume. For the bandbox look, n simple linen jacket gains fashion impact with an unexpected combination of colors — sky blue banded in yellow and while.

Although the fabrics look ami feel like wool, they should b e pressed with an iron set at the rayon selling — 250 to 300 degrees. Pressure on the fabric should be light, and the iron should be in contact with the fabric for the shortest possible time. Remember that the fabric should be pressed on the wrong side. If it is necessary to press on the right side, use a dry press cloth.
