Keen Eye Should Be Kept on the
French Styles, Prominent
Fashion Writer Says.
RESTAURANT FROCK IS BRAND

Cut and Line Which Marks It
Real expression of Paris is found In
the restaurant frock. And this Is the
time of year when designers over
there arc bending the best of their ef
forts to create dresses of such charac
ter. Then, observes a fashion writer
in the New York Times, while we In
inerica do not go in for the restaur
ant frock as sucn, suu we nave a .dis
tinct predisposition to a dress of this
tjpe, and It Is from those, models for
Parisian restaurant life that we take
vans of the ideas which carry us Into
pore particularized American crea
tions. The dresses, In fact which are
being worn now In Paris are those It
behooves us to watch from this side of
the Atlantic If we wish to be any
where in touch with fashions as they
proceed along their varied ways.
But the restaurant dresses that are
Mff just now are the loveliest It
jeans, which have ever been made.
They are simpler even than the sim
plest of day-time frocks, but they have
that distinction of cut and line and
fabric which marks them for leaders
la their own generation. Most of the
toping has disappeared; uneven
tens, except those very much re
inained, are taboo, and altogether the

Quite Interesting are the newest of
the dresses from three of the leading
Parisian couturiers. They are Jenny,
Polret and Prcmet each of whom Is
entitled to a distinct command for
fashion as It exists and shall exist. All
the waistlines are as long as Is consist

material Is the only real consideration
about the gowns, and, while the skirts
are long, they are not unduly so, to
Instigate a riot In the camp of those
who bate to see the -skirts of dresses
drop too far.
Sparkles With Brilliancy.
Jenny's dress is made of black crepe.
The French call It "crepe morocaln
nolr." It Is then trimmed with the
slightest tracery of beads in silver and
gray. It might, upon this description,
be called dull, but only by one who did
not know the art of a French designer.
Those clever ones and especially
Jenny can make black and gray and
silver shine until they glow with color,
and that with only the merest bit of a
pattern of trimming with which to
create a contrast
The bodice of this frock Is typical of
so many of the newer waists. It is
Just a trifle longer than the normal
waistline and manages to give that

ter of fact. It Is studiously arranged on
a foundation or lining dress, which
holds It uncompromisingly In place.
The bigness of the sleeves Is only an
excuse for gtvlng.actual grace and line
to that portion of the freck, and the
sleeves are a center of the design of
the costume as a whole.
Around New York just recently a
great many dresses of this general
character have been noted. They were
mostlv made of a dull and heavy crepe,
or of a shiny black satin of one .of the
standard and reliable weaves. But the
sleeves nre always very big and floppy.

Many of these dresses ere made

But here have been seen frocks made
In the most brilliant of colored crepes
and satins, which have held their place
along with the general throng in a
quite remaraaDie way.
Colors Much More In Vogue.
The later news from Paris says that
colors are much more In vogue than
they have been In the recent past But
In Kew York, wherever well-dressed
women are gathered together, there Is
a surprising preponderance of black.
Creation in Ivory and Metal Brocade.
During the last few weeks one has
noted some exception to this general
rule In the way of all-white frocks seen
on many of the younger girls of the
theater and dances. But as a rule,
these frocks are made along plain and
simple lines, Just as their black sisters,
and they take the tone of their gen
eral effect from their harmony with
the personality of the wearer. ,
Often a white dress on a very ac
centuated brunette type will create the
most vividly colorful effect And
again the all-black costume on a girl

Again the waistline Is long, without
being too unwieldy In Its general pro
portions, and again the design and con
struction of the frock are so simple
that they seem to defy competition in
that particular direction. The black
satin Is so arranged that It seems to
make the foundation gown, but noth
ing of that sort has really happened.
The two materials are so blended that
between them, they make a pattern
and a clever combination that seems
destined to make the gown which

From this gown It will be seen that
no particular accent has been put up
on the waistline. At that point a

NEW L AGE SHAWLS
Models From Paris to Replace
. Silk for Summer.'
Foundation It Brussels Net and Some
time a Net With Fine Thread
but Coarse Mesh.
That lace shawls In exquisite color
ing are likely to replace the now popu
lar silk ones for summer wear seems
evident from models brought over
from Paris. The foundation for these
shawls Is Brussels net md sometimes
a net with a fine thread but coarse
mesh that reminds one of veilings.
This Is black with color Introduced
One model Is a large square, em
broidered with a wide border of Pals

Several of the shawls are shaped
similar to a half moon because. It Is
said, this type drapes more grace
fully than the square or oblong. A
model of this kind comes in black net
with black silk fringe. The body of
the shawl Is braided in a running
design as a border, and with scrolls
and plumes. White wooden beads are
used to emphasize the scrolls.
Gauze fans with painted birds, but
terflies and flowers compose an in
teresting part of one collection. The
colorings are very soft quite differ
ent from those of the vivid feather
fans recently used. In dull blues,
greens and yellows, they are designed
with an eye to harmonizing with light

A pheasant In soft browns, a pea

motifs for other designs.
A few of the fans are embroidered
lightly In silk of the same color as

painted ivory sticks, Its painted gar

NEW SATIN EVENING WRAPS.
Softest and Most Clinging Materials
Are Used This Season for
Some of the evening wraps for the
season are mnde of the softest and
most clinging materials. One, for In
stance, was of dark blue crepe. It was
fashioned In enpe effect and had large
revers of pure white ermine. On the
lower part of the cape ami at the sides
were placed shnpMl panels of the
ermine fur. Another wrap was of
onera satin to which was attached at
the shoulders an ovennnntie or lace,
headed by cord and frill of the Ince.
The lace was threaded with steel-colored
metal threads. A second mantle
was of raspberry-colored silk and
trimmed with gray fox and garlands of
roses. Evening frot-ks sire of gorgeous
silks and laces. One exceedingly pret

with gold Ince. Another was of white
satin over a silver lace skirt, which
was caught up with a bouquet of bine

BUTTONS SERVE AS TRIMMING
Demand U Heavy for New Idea In
Decoration for Gowns; Wonder
ful Effects Obtained.
In recent years we have heard and
seen little 'of buttons. Their use has
been confined to utilitarian purposes.
Now, observes a fashion writer, makers
are exploiting them as trimming.
Wonderful effects can be obtained
through buttons, and when tha at
tention of the fashionably dressed is
turned toward them a great demand

fur still plays Its part and an Im
portant part It Is, too as a trimming
for suits as well as other garments.
FLARING LINES IN TOPCOATS
New Models Flare From Belt to Hem
and Belt Is Low; Gives Long-
The straight up-and-down line Is no
longer smart In topcoats. The new
models flare gracefully from belt to
hem and the belt Is placed low to give
a long-walsted effect. Sometimes the
skirt section Is circular Incut to give
this graceful flare; and sometimes V
shaped sections are set In at the sides.
