Slowly, Surely Designer Steals Big Customers By ALLISON LERRICK PARIS (AP) -- Last July, when the audience was relaxing over coffee after the grueling Dior,couture show, people were astounded to see half-naked models in weird makeup parading between their tables. When they heard that the clothes were designed by Daniel Le Bret, everyone asked, "Who in the world is that?" Now, Paris is well on its way to knowing that Le Bret is the latest, youngest, and most avant-garde member of the haute couture. A sculptor, writer, jewelry designer and former assistant to Guy Laroche and Ted Lapidus. this 27-year-old eye- browless wonder opened his very own couture house a year and a half ago. His new spring collection is the smallest in town: only 20 dresses, as compared to 100 or 200 elsewhere, and consequently 20 good ones. Already, slowly but surely, Bret is stealing away customers from the big houses. To his surprise, their average age 50. "I thought I was designing young clothes." he complains. DESIGNED FOR BODIES His clothes, in fact, are neither young nor old. They are designed for bodies, t h e one thing in fashion that will never go out of style. For spring, most houses are showing dozens of 1930s tea- gowns. Not Le Bret. "I thought the French were more intelligent than that. In the end, however, they will always return to the woman. She is the best source of inspiration," explains Lc Bret, who became interested in clothes because he "loved to watch bodies.' What he puts on bodies what makes them look good: the kind of timeless and ageless clothes that have added to the fe and shudders at the bought. Not one inch of leg should be isible. "The sight of two little ieces of flesh trotting down lie street is repulsive. Even vith a gorgeous 1930s dress ou can slil! see wrinkle: lockings and bony feet Clothes were meant to be com orUible, not to attract the at enion of oher people," insist he designer, who would have jeen apt to criticize a noble Ro Taan if he showed a glimpse o andal. This modern version of iquity includes long black an white tent dresses or ^nortnous black caftan. Whiti rcpe and satin pants are wid and soft enough to pass for loorlength skirt. Jackets, unst ·uctured but with an interestin hape, have no relics of a mor ·ecent past such as lapels, but ons, belts or bows. There are also a couple o Iresses over bathing suits, bu hese are more in the spirit o ancient dancing girls. SHAPE OP TODAY And all of the clothes follov vhat Le Bret considers th ihape of today: the cone. "E 1 erything contemporary is con cat. Airplanes, nouses, subwa corridors and cars are. So ar vomen," he comments. Conical or not, his clothes . Blattering indeed, "A designe must be an autocrat. He shoul never give women w h a t the want, except .for confidence Women need to be reassured b charms of Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Indians for ccn turies. "I'm a synthesis of Greco-Ro man drapery and Courrcges. f contemporary dress, in contrast, is like scaffolding. It cuts the woman into three or four pieces," says this designer whose goal is to put the dignitj back into clothes. Simplicity is the look. All hif dresses are made of a single piece of fabric like togas or saris, and have only one seam always on the outside an piped. Everything is in the cut as demonstrated by a b l a c k satin "tee-shirt" with natura rounded shoulders and one seam. UNLINED In black, white, both or on occasion, stripes, -most of Le Bret's clothes are reversible They are all soft and unlineti the better not to "shut the bod; in a box." His ideal is to make clothe, so easy and unpretentious that you can wear them to work, reverse them and wear the other side out to dinner. This means pants, or, if you insist on changing in the evening, long dresses. Le Bret has never made a short dress in his heir couturier. __ .... by their women," he says. frfi. as -men c How can a new make money when couturie it's we mown that established house Tiake theirs on perfume Simple. Le Bret will soon com out with his own perfume Triangle. "When you put it on at break fast, it smells like grapefruit, pleasant smell in the morning By dinner, the perfum changes, and the woman smel like damp wood. Very sexy, Le Bret adds.

By gently tapping it on the able, the cookie dough was forced into the tube further and packed down. Now I get round cookies instead of misshapen ones and they are easier to handle in the refrigerator or freezer.
