    Background: DIOR'S COLLECTION FOR SPRING, 1968, WENT BACK TO THE PAST FOR ITS INSPIRATION, WITH FLASHBACKS TO THE TWENTIES, THIRTIES AND FORTIES. ONLY THE HEMLINE HAS RESISTED THE TREND BACK TO PRE-WAR STYLES. IN LINE WITH ALL THE LEADING PARIS COUTURIERS--EXCEPT BACMAIN -- DIOR KEEPS THE SKIRTS ABOVE THE KNEE.

    FROM THE TWENTIES, DIOR HAS TAKEN SHORT SKIRTS WORN WITH PALE STOCKINGS.

    FROM THE THIRTIES, BERETS AND FEDORA HATS IN AL CAPONE STYLE, PLEATED SKIRTS, FLOWER TRIMS AND SCARVES KNOTTED AT THE NECK.

    AND FROM THE FORTIES COME WIDE, TIGHT BELTS, REMINISCENT OF DIOR'S SENSATIONAL NEW LOOK SHORTLY AFTER THE WAR.

    RED, WHITE AND BLUE ARE DIOR'S COLOURS FOR THE SPRING, WHILE SHAPES RANGE FROM FRILLS AND FLOUNCES ON EVENING DRESSES TO HEAD-HUGGING BASQUE BERETS.
