Background: In Paris, the designer Pierre Cardin revealed his new designs for the spring and summer on January 21. The colours will be bright and lively -- blue, red and yellow. Shoulders will be emphasized and skirt lengths will vary. The model in the blue dress and bolero-style hat displays what Cardin hopes will be touch of summer chic, while the girl in red shows how to stay cool with style in the sun. With the skirt coming down to just above the knee, and with the shoulders bare, the dress allows women to show off their sun tans as well. The flouncy yellow evening gown has a touch of the Spanish flamenco style, again with the shoulders prominently on display. As hem lines varied throughout the display at the Place Beauvau, this blue flower-patterned dress was one of the designs noticeably shorter than last year. Cardin suggested that satin beige shoes would best match the blue dress.
