fnvor of tld, for It glws a large va

designer this season, It seems, bus ue

bus drawn for his Ideas upon every
source of Inspiration.
I'olret, for Instnnce, has done n
great ileal In the way of Spanish eve
ning gowns which show panniers lutlg
lug out over the hips In many mid
voluminous folds. A frequent decol
lete Is termed "The Ihnpress Hit
genie." and when the sort of gown Is
cut very low, ns It often Is, there nre
delicate metal chains used to slip over
the shoulders and to hold the gown In
phlce. At this lmne, too. there !s In

discloses completely one sboiildel and
which has a point of the draped fab

It Is the evening gown which was
