    Background: PARIS FASHION DESIGNER IVES ST. LAURENT DROPS THE HEMLINE IN HIS AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHION COLLECTION TO THE MID-CALF AND ANKLE LEVELS THAT CHRISTIAN DIOR MADE FAMOUS IN HIS "NEW LOOK" BACK IN 1947. NINETY PERCENT OF THE CLOTHES IN THE ST. LAURENT COLLECTION ARE BASED ON HIS NEW MAXI-LENGTH FOR COATS AND SKIRTS.

    SAINT LAURENT SAYS HE DESIGNS PRIMARILY FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION. THE SUCCESS OF HIS NEW LOOK DEPENDS UPON A WHOLE GENERATION OF YOUNG GIRLS WHO HAVE GROWN UP SINCE DIOR'S 1947 "REVOLUTION".

    IN THE FILM WE SEE FIRST A WOOL COAT PRINTED IN MAUVE AND BLUE TO IMITATE A PERSIAN CARPET. UNDER IT THE MODEL WEARS A TUNIC AND TROUSERS IN MARINE JERSEY.

    NEXT WE SEE A LONG EVENING OUTFIT CONSISTING OF A CAPE IN CHESTNUT FRIEZE AND A DRESS OF CHESTNUT CREPE.

    THE THIRD CREATION IS A LONG EVENING DRESS IN MULTICOLOURED PATCHWORK.

    FOURTH COMES ONE OF ST. LAURENT'S RARE SHORT DRESSES, A MINI EVENING DRESS MADE ENTIRELY OF FEATHERS.

    THE COLLECTION SHOWS SOME OF THE MOST ORIGINAL FUR COATS IN PARIS, COMBINING DIFFERENT FURS IN ONE COAT, OFTEN IN PATCHWORK DESIGNS. ONE OF THESE, A LONG-DAY-COAT IN CALF AND SEALSKIN, ROUNDS OFF THE FILM -- UNDER IT THE MODEL WEARS A JACKET AND TROUSERS IN BEIGE JERSEY.
