    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 1: BALMAIN: IN THE SPRING OF 1970, ONE EXPECTS A BIG REVOLUTION IN FASHION. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT SKIRTS ARE GOING TO BE MUCH LONGER BUT I THINK THAT THIS REVOLUTION IS MUCH MORE IN THE WHOLE APPROACH OF THE PROBLEM OF FASHION. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MANY YEARS IT SEEMS THAT WOMEN WILL DARE TO BE ELEGANT AGAIN. TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF IT I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU THE BRIDE FOR A COUNTRY WEDDING. THE DRESS IS AT THE NEW LENGTH...30 CMS FROM THE GROUND, IT IS MADE FROM A THICK COTTON ENCRUSTED WITH VERY PRECIOUS SENEGAL COTTON LACE. IT IS WORN WITH A TURBAN, AND SHORT GLOVES TO MAKE IT VERY CASUAL. FOR THE MORNING AN ENSEMBLE WITH COAT VERY SLIM WITH THE NEW LENGTH....VERY HIGH WAIST LINE ENCRUSTED BELT WORN WITH A TURBAN OF PRINTED SILK HIDING...HAIR AND A DRESS MADE OF NAVY BLUE WOOL WITH A STEEL BELT. FOR THE AFTERNOON AN ENSEMBLE OF THE NEW LENGTH MADE OF...IN POSITION TO THE LENGTH OF THE SKIRT, THE JACKET IS EXTRA SHORT, IT IS WORN WITH A BLOUSE OF WHITE JERSEY AND ALL THE ACCESSORIES ARE OF BLACK AND WHITE PATENT LEATHER. FOR COCKTAILS, HERE COMES A SALMON PINK CREPE DRESS...VERY SOFT......WRAPPED AROUND WITH FRINGE.



    IT IS MUCH LONGER AND THE FRINGE PLAYS A BIG ROLE ALSO THE HAIRDO AND ACCESSORIES TAKEN FROM THE THIRTIES. AND NOW COMES THE LONG SLEEVE. IT IS CUT IN PRINTED ORGANZA EDGED WITH OSTRICH FEATHERS IN THE TONES OF THE ORGANZA. IT IS WORN WITH INDIAN JEWELLERY AND A TURBAN OF THE SAME MATERIAL.

    Background: THE PARIS COUTURE COLLECTIONS FOR SPRING AND SUMMER OPEN ON MONDAY (26 JANUARY) WITH THE MAJOR FASHION HOUSES INCLUDING PIERRE BALMAIN PLUMPING FOR LONG LOW LINES.

    BALMAIN'S HEMLINES ARE PREDOMINANTLY MIDCALF LENGTH CREATING WHAT HE CALLS AN ELEGANT LOOK. THE COUTURIER FEELS THAT NEXT SEASON'S FASHIONS WILL SEE A REVOLUTION IN WOMEN'S CLOTHES AND THE WHOLE PHILOSOPHY TOWARDS THEM.

    BUT THE OVERALL MOOD OF THE DESIGNERS AT NEXT WEEK'S SHOWINGS IS EXPECTED TO BE SOFT, FREE AND EASY. THE DARING DECOLLETE IS DUE FOR A BIG COMEBACK AFTER YEARS OF PRIM HIGH-NECKED DRESSES. IN MANY CASES DEEP SCOOPED DECOLLETES, CUT TO SHOW THE CLEAVAGE OF THE BOSOM, WILL TEAM UP WITH LONG BILLOWING SLEEVES ON FORMAL CLOTHES.

    HERE PIERRE BALMAIN INTRODUCES HIS OWN CREATIONS.
