PATENT LEATHER BACK
Used Prominently for 1932 in Belts,
Bags. Hats and Shoes.
NEW YORK (/4b.- Black patent leath
er gleams forth as the most fashionable
of leathers for Spring of 1932.
The vogue of wool for daytime dresses,
the ’tailored suit for street wear, the
need for a versatile shoe to go with the
Spring costume colors are reasons for
the •return of high gloss black patent
leather shoes.
Quickening the return were the
modish patent leather accessories — belts,
bags and varied millinery and dress
trims so popular this Fall
During this season shoes have been
trimmed with black patent leather and
the opera pump of this leather also
made its appearance, but the prediction
its that by Spring the leather will be
used generally and other leathers will
be used for ornamentation.
A return of the patent leather danc
ing pump for men is predicted.
