SLEEK LOOK

bodices of black suits. Both
styles come with matching
skirts.

Bill Blass: Ruffles are a
favorite Blass motif, and he
usually shows several variations
each season. This time, one suit
consists of three tiers of large
ruffles, starting at the bodice
and ending at the hipline. Other
suits have ruffles only at the
bodice or at the hip. Colors are
black, and black and beige.

Christian Dior: Choices
range from sweet to
sophisticated. Among the
former are black and white
eyelet suits with pink sashes.
Among the latter are off-the-
shoulder suits in sequined
fabrics and in jungle prints.
Other styles come in zebra
stripes, and in silver and black
swirls. Dior suits are known for
the fit and support of their built-
in bras.

Flora Kung: This designer is
known for her floral print silk
dresses. Her swimsuit line, in-
troduced for the first time this
year focuses on the fabrics
rather than any innovative
designs. Kung shows a one-
shoulder maillot in a wavy
stripe. Other suits are done in a
brown and green camouflage
pattern, a pattern that looks like
marble, and an oversized rose
print.

Gitano: This youth-oriented
manufacturer is showing bright
colors and splashy prints.
Themes include tropical florals,
stonewashed stripes, chemical
compound prints, and color
blocking. Cabana sets come in
novelty prints.

Gideon Oberson suit in
black, white, gold and hot
pink. Gideon Oberson
collection at Begadim.
