Early Autumn Modes Which
Show the Marked Tendency
Toward Mannish Effects in
Smartest Tailored Costumes
LADY DUFF-GORDON, the famou3 ,,LucileM of London, and foremost
creator of fashions in the world, writes each week the fashion article
for this newspaper, presenting all that is newest and best in styles for
well-dressed women.
Lady DufT-Gordons Paris establishment brings her into close touch with
that centre of fashion.
Lady Duff-Gordon's American
establishment is at Nos. 37 and 39

Stunning Tailored Costume Showing the Flowered Waistccat
and the New Chiton Tunic. yf
By Lady Duff-Gordon ("Lucile").
JARIS has evidently .grown a
bit weary of the eternal
feminine, and there is a
trend toward the masculine
in the early Autumn costumes. There
Is a certain boyish touch that Is very
charming, I think, and I am glad to
note that the redunXant frllllness of
the present mode is to be toned down
Bomewhat. Of course. I am devoted
to the femlnJne myself la clothes and
manners, and I deplore much of tho
rampant strenucusness of the pres
ent, but, after all. the Summer Is the
time for frills, and when the Aufumn
cornea with Its more "serious work and
pleasures one should dress a little
more severely.
There Is nothing at all nun-like In
the new costumes. They are tailored
of course, but not too severely. Their
masculinity is shown in the waist
coats with which nine out of ten o?
tho Fall tallleurs aro fittted. In the
past when we wanted to say o. some
woman that ehe was utterly mascu
line we have eald that sho wore the
breeches. To-day we might say that
ehe wears the waistcoat.
The most Important thlug about
the new waistcoat (1 do hope that
none of you ever call this a vest) U
that It can be made of some highly
colored fabric contrasting with ths
costume Itself or that it can be high
ly decorative in effect. The giy and
ari-colored cretonnes and velvets are
very effective, and are perhaps more
modish than any other fabric. Next
in importance to the fabric used Is
the stylo chosen, for thero are many
different kinds, each one Just as
pretty as the other. I am sending
you two examples of the waistcoat
costumes that I liko very much.
They were worn at Auteuil the other
(Jay, and were admired exceedingly.

Quaint Afternoon
of Rose Voile
White Channelise,
the New Draped
i Skirt.
t J4--
Jfe Brighter Side of Turkey Trotting
note the double-breasted effect which
is so smart There are two little
points similar to those on the men's
evening waistcoats. The whole cos
tume is, I think delightful. It is
brocade eponge. The curious little
tunic of accordion pleated chiffon is
one of the very smartest touches.
These tunics are tery popular with
the mondaines whose figures are
6lenderly youthful. The coat worn
with this is one of the many Russian
blouse models with which wo have
been Inundated the past year. The
manner in which the sleeves are fin
ished is, however, new, ard I think
rather unusual. Worn with this is
one of the piquant Tarn o Shanter
hats of velvet which promise to be
very much worn this Winter.
The Recond waistcoat costume la
of hunter's green velvet, and the
waistcoat is a charming but some
what cubist effect in green and red
velvet The turn-back collar on the
waistcoat is one of the new touches
which when added to a gown mean
so r-'jcb, and the adorable handbag
of green taffeta needs no praise; it
is so perfect
And now just as a fillip to this dis
sertation on clothes 1 shall send you
the picture of a quaint little gown
that I designed for a recent bride.
It 13 one of those semi-transparent
affairs which have captured Paris,
Vienna and even New York, 1 hear.
The under body is of chrmeuseand
lace, white of course. The curiously
Involved drapery for that is al) the
upper skirt Is and the bodice are
of embroidered voile. The colors
aro rose and white, and the crushed
girdle is of rose silk. The hat you
have seen before, but never a back
