Cubist Styles In Dress Are Introduced This Season
THERE are only a few real nov
elties thin spring In Amnion
if ono elim. nates tins absurd
attempt certain style authori
ties have made to introduce into their
costumes and hats the absurd forms
and coloring of the cubist and futur
ist school of painting r'or those not
UP in art Jargon It may be well to ex
plain that these cubists are French
artists of a revolutionary type who
have abolished painting In the so call
ed acceptation of the term They deny
not only any representation of nature,
but also any known or traditional form
of decora tion. These "artists" main
tain that they have Invented a symbo
l.sm In Dim li to express their individ
uality or. us they say, their "souls"
Mr. Ketioti C". recognized both in this
country HPd abroad as one of the
world ton roost painters, says. "If

that they remind one very forcibly of a
scene in a popular play where ona of
the characters holds up to ridicule wo
man's extravagance In paying absurd
ly high prices for hats with almost
no ornamentation. The unfashionable
model that pointed the "awful exam
ple" was too elaborately trimmed, and
madam to bring tbe price up to ap
proved millinery tariff took off a
feather on one side, bringing up tbe
cost of the model $5, while the re
moval of a bunch of roses brought the
hat up ten more dollars, and the elimi
nation of all but a whisk of ribbon In
creased the "demnition total to the
fashionable hat figure, J5.
The hat pictured is a sure enough
Instance of how the prices of hats sans
trimming are going this season. "It's
the line," madam reminds her custo
mer, "that Is the thing paid fo" and
It is the beautiful way In wh.. i the
feather is scraped almost out ui cx
istence that costs, one might add.
The hat illustrated is a girlish mode!
in burnt straw, trimmed with nothing
more exciting than a band of Hack
ribbon with picot edge and a sad
droopy looking bow of loops and ends.
A hint of the smart reparate coats of
the season can be pained by observing
the wrap of tan moire silk among the
cuts. The material makes the model
unsuitable for informal wear, but It is
very distinguished worn with a smart
afternoon costume. A Pulgarian col
lar is in evidence. fo. on this wrap.
