Autumn Fabrics to tke rore,
The Fall season is upon us with winter al
ready casting its long shadow.
To fully enjoy this wintry weather one must
he properly clothed and in very truth the materials
for winter clothes offered here far surpass those of
any preceding season.
MATERIALS RICH AND BEAUTIFUL.
Pluahes and Velvets, plain or brocaded, a single tone or
several reflected in one. Richness of texture and coloring
delight the eye and make the choosing of a suit hut the in
dulgence of one's fancy.
Broadcloths as soft as Crepe de Chine with the lustre of
satin, in black, all the taupe shades, royal purple, prune, som
bre browns and white for the handsome suit or one piece dress.
For trimming these broadcloths there are many new ornamental
braids and buttons and these are in even greater demand than
formerly.
The simple tailored suit of hipcord, either plain or
two-toned color effects, in any of the fashionable colors, is espe
cially smart.
For evening wear the same softness of material predom
inates. Brocade of the most 'delicate hue, all shimmering with
silvery threads. Moire, that at the first glance looks to be but
one dull, rich mass of color, takes on innumerable tints with
each change of position.
Charmeuse in all its varieties is decidedly in favor, both
for day and evening wear, and may be used for the entire
gown or in combination with other fabrics.
TRIMMINGS.
All the lighter laces are in vogue, often several different
kinds being used on one gown.
Nets, chiffons and like materials covered with spangles
and rhinestone dew drops are conspicuous as overdraperies.
Beads are much in evidence, novel ornaments being made with
which to loop up the drapery.
Gold and silver lace in dull tones with many metal threads
are extremely good.
A display of bags from Liberty's' unique, skilfully made
conceits can be seen upon entering the Millinery department.
VELVET, VELVETEEN AND CORDUROY
SUITINGS
are contributing largely toward the charm of the present ex
hibits. 22, 23, 24, 28 inches wide complete, showing of fash
ionable colors, including new two-toned effects.
Priced at $1.00, $1.50, $1.75 and $2.25 per yard
GOSSARD CORSETS
for the Autumn and Winter season are indispensable to the
perfect fitting gown. New models now ready in our corset
department.
