t's fleece and crinolines,
bubble dresses and acid
denim. It's funky and
sophisticated; it's
anything goes. But be
forewarned: This season
forecasts strong gists of green,
green, green along with
traditional autumn breezes of
grey, black navy and burgundy.

FUNKY
SOPHISTICATED

BY ELLYCE FIELD

A rugged mix of denim and
khaki is the perfect choice for
active children.

THERE ARE MANY
CHOICES THIS SEASON
FROM RUGGED
ACTIVE WEAR TO A
REFINED STYLE.

Several area merchants offer
their opinions as to Fall's best
looks for kids.
Cindy Obron Kahn, owner of
R.G. Crumbsnatcher, boys and
girls sizes newborn to 10,
located in downtown
Birmingham:
"This is the year for old-
fashioned, sweet clothes, in soft
colors and textures. Especially
in infant wear, we are showing
ice cream colors — mints,
peaches, pinks. For all ages,
there's still a lot of warm and
cozy fleece you just want to
jump into."
"I buy a lot of clothes with a
sense of humor — crinoline
skirts, baby jodper outfits, sumo
wrestling baby sweats. Hats will
be pretty fabulous, both fun
and functional."
Loretta Lorion, owner of Loret-
ta Lorion Childrens Apparel,
sizes infant to 14 for boys and
girls, located in the Bloomfield
Plaza:
"This is the year of the pretty
child. There is a lovely, Euro-
pean, French schoolgirl-look
that's new in girls' clothing. I'm
showing a lot of sailor clothes,
petticoats, lace and ilet trim,
navys and burgundys. For the
holidays, there are lush velvets.
For boys, it's a very graceful
and mannish look, a macho-
European look. Especially for
dress, there are double
breasted tweed sport coats, un-
constructed with a drop
shoulder. Wear this with an
open-neck shirt."
Jan Gitlin, owner of Peanuts,
boys and girls, sizes infants to
14, located on the Boardwalk:
