  • Description


    BALMAIN DESCRIBING HIS CREATIONS AS MODELS SHOW THEM (SOUND OF FILM).



    TRANSCRIPT: BALMAIN: PARIS IS ONCE AGAIN PROPOSING A NEW SILHOUETTE FOR THE COMING WINTER. THIS TIME I HAVE THOUGHT THAT MAYBE WE HAVE VERY COLD DAYS AHEAD. AND FOR EXAMPLE THIS SUIT, VERY CASUAL, IS CONCEIVED FOR COMFORT, WITH ITS HOOD MADE OF THE SAME FANCY JERSEY AS THE SWEATER, AS WELL AS THE STOCKING. THE SKIRT IS STILL VERY SHORT, THE JACKET IS SHORT TOO. IT HAS DETAILS ON THE SLEEVE, ON THE SHOULDER. IT IS WORN WITH HIGH LEATHER BOOTS. THE OTHER MODEL IS VERY TYPICAL OF THE NEW COATS FOR THE WINTER, MUCH WIDER, MUCH ??? COMFORTABLE THAN IN THE PAST, CUT IN HORIZONTAL STRIPES, AND WORN WITH A LONG STOLE OF THE SAME MATERIAL, OF WHICH THE FRINGE HAS BEEN WORKED IN THE SAME COLOURS AS THE STRIPES, AND THE HAT IS OF WHITE FELT, OLIVE (SHAPED).



    BALMAIN: HERE COMES THE BRIDE. HER DRESS IS VERY STRICTLY CUT, AND INCORPORATES THE TRAIN LIKE A BIG CAPE. IT IS TRIMMED WITH MY WHITE MINK, AND SHE IS WEARING A SCINTILLATING CROWN INTERWOVEN WITH ORANGE BLOSSOMS AND FLOWERS. IT IS THE IDEAL DRESS FOR THE WEDDING OF A PRINCESS IN A FAIRY TALE, WHEN SHE HAS TO CROSS THE FOREST IN THE CRISP MORNING, WEARING A REGAL ATTIRE.



    BALMAIN: AND NOW, THIS IS A TYPICAL SHORT EVENING DRESS IN BLACK SILK ORGANZA, VERY RICHLY EMBROIDERED WITH GOLD AND TURQUOISE, AND HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF LITTLE FEATHERS, GOING UPWARDS, MAKING IT VERY GAY LIKE A PARADISE BIRD.
