    Background: THE ITALIAN AUTUMN-WINTER READY-TO-WEAR FASHION COLLECTIONS WERE SHOWN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AT THE PALAZZO PITTI IN FLORENCE. THE CLOTHES WERE DESIGNED BY ROME AND MILAN HIGH FASHION HOUSES.

    THERE WILL BE LITTLE CHANGE THIS YEAR IN HEMLINES, WHICH REMAIN ABOVE THE KNEE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW MAXICOATS, ONE OF WHICH BY DE SIMONE WAS WORN OVER A BIKINI, THE TOP HALF OF WHICH CONSISTED OF COILED STRING AND TWO DISCS. THE LINE ITSELF ALSO REMAINS UNCHANGED - NARROW, OFTEN BELTED, WITH SLIM REDINGOTE COATS, SHORT JACKETS AND SUITS, AND MANY TROUSERS WITH LONG JACKETS OR TUNICS.

    ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUCCESSES WERE GYPSY EVENING-DRESSES WITH FULL SKIRTS, JEWELLED BODICES AND PUSSY-SLEEVED BLOUSES. FABIANI SHOWED SOME OF THESE AND KRIZIA HAD SIMILAR MODELS. FLOPPY COWBOY-STYLE HATS WERE ALSO POPULAR WITH DESIGNERS - INDEED ALMOST EVERY MODEL HAD A HAT TO MATCH.

    KEN SCOTT OF MILAN DREW ENTHUSIASTIC APPLAUSE WITH HIS 'FANTASY IN THE FOG' COLLECTION. HIS FOG-TONED AND GREY FAKE-FUR COATS WITH ANKLE-LENGTH HEMLINES WERE ALSO MUCH ADMIRED. HE DESCRIBED THE FABRICS HE USED AS 'RICHLY TEXTURED VELVETS, A FANTASY OF FUR, TRANSLUCENT TULLES AND SHEEP CHIFFON'.

    LA MENDOLA ACCENTUATED THE BUSTLINE WITH FORM-FITTING CLOTHES FOR DAY AND EVENING. THE NEW SOPHISTICATED WOMEN OF THE '70'S WILL BE DRESSED BY LA MENDOLA IN FUR AND FEATHERS.
