Paris has a new young man – Hubert de Givenchy. His boutique clothes have won the world. They are modern (many separates), fresh and sagacious.
He knows – to the last ruffle – exactly how far to go. Everyone is crazy about his white shirtings – his upcut beach pants – huge chic bags – his new approach to colour – his blanchisserie.
1. The Garbo hat – pulled down to the eyelids – a Paris Ford – in dull blue silk bound in wool to match a coat that is lined and ruffled at the wrist in pale Madonna blue satin.
2. A white jersey hip-bound cardigan coat buttoned in real coral, its collar – real coral beads. With it, a white jersey sailor wearing a spiky hatband of coral.
3. Dead white shirting – and nothing could be so clean-looking – in a gypsy dress with an umbrella skirt and lashings of red and yellow printed Persian cotton.
4. An overblouse of printed pique in a curiously scrolled Persian pattern. Upcut pants – these, quite a feat of de Givenchy – in white pique. Upcut shoes in natural straw.
