    "LEMON ICE" IS A GLAMOUR COAT AND DRESS IN ACID LIME -- AND AVAILABLE IN THE CUT PRICE LINE. THE CLOQUE DRESS AND BOLERO ARE MATCHED BY A COAT WITH THREE-QUARTERS LENGTH SLEEVES. THE SUMMER-STYLE HAT IS OF LEMON YELLOW FEATHERS.



    "USEFUL" IS A NAVY AND GREY FLECKED SUITING COAT FROCK IN A DOUBLE-BREASTED STYLE. IT IS ROUNDED OFF WITH A LARGE NAVY STRAW HAT. WHILE THE USUAL COLOUR AND DASH ARE MISSING, THE HARTNELL LINE IN GENERAL REMAINS MUCH THE SAME.



    "SKY-HIGH" HAS THE EMPHASIS ON SILK. THE DRESS -- AND ITS FRONT BOW AND BOLERO BACK -- IS TURQUOISE SILK. THE LARGE HAT IS OF SWATHED PINK SILK ORGANZA.



    AND, FINALLY, HARTNELL'S SUGGESTION FOR THE OPENING DAY AT THE ASCOT HORSE RACES -- A GREAT DAY IN THE FASHION WORLD. APTLY NAMED "FIRST DAY," IT IS AN EMERALD AND NAVY PRINTED CHIFFON DRESS WITH MATCHING COAT. AND THE HAT IS ANOTHER LARGE NAVY STRAW ONE.
