The Paris Craze for Black
and White Millinery
The "Chicago Tribune's" Paris correspondent speak
ing of hats, says: Paris has gone crazy over black
and white. It's either all-black, all-white, or black
artd white in combination; not only in Paris, but in
London at Christie's, in Berlin at Gerson's, in Vien
na at Drecoll's, the demand is for black and white
exactly as it is appearing at the Taces in France.
Black and white is the smart, the sure, the safe
thing to wear today. It always looks chic, it brings
out every good point in its wearer. It is discreet,
yet startling. And it certainly is fascinating.
"I have never seen so much black and white in
my life as I saw in the three weeks I was in Paris,"
said a buyer. "And equally true is the fact that'
I never saw women look more stunning.
The hats . for the most part were solid
black, made either of chantilly lace or of maline or
satin. Sometimes there was a touch of white in the
hat, but usually that was introduced in the dress or
in the footwear."
' Our early planning and buying has made it pos
sible for us to supply every desire, every fancy, as
our newest arrivals includes models for every type of
face and figure.
