Bell Bottoms

How do you feel about bell bot-
toms? Did you wear them back in the
'60s and vowed never again? Brace
yourself because if what we hear is
true, bellbottoms are on their way
back! Remember, more than 20 years
have gone by and there's a whole new
generation that never experienced
the experience
TAT() years ago, in Europe, there was
some indication that bell bottoms
might happen again. But even
Marithe and Francois Girbaud, whose
greatest successes have come from
their interpretation of street fashion,
backed away. What did happen was
a greater acceptance of a wider, fuller
leg and the return of the palazzo
pant. Now the trend-spotters have
reported seeing bell bottoms in the
all-night jazz clubs in London. They
call them "flares: They've surfaced
in Canada and have been seen in
some of the trendiest discos in New
York and Los Angeles. There's even
an army-navy surplus store down in
Galveston, Texas, and the owner has
been buying Seafarer jeans (Navy
issue work jeans) and selling them in
indigo and black overdyes to punk
rockers and bikers.
Recently, two former employees of
Landlubber leased the name from the
Boston company that made it all hap-
pen back in '68. They are getting
ready to introduce the '90s version
of that famous silhouette. They want
to show today's trendy teens what
they missed.

The last thing the petite woman
wants to hear is how "cute" she looks.
Women under 5' 4" are speaking up
in a big way, according to Spiegel, the
catalog retailer that produces two
special issues a year aimed spe-
cifically at the petite market.
"The petite woman wants to be
taken seriously, not to be treated like
a little girl," says Janet Koehn,
Spiegel's fashion director.
Sharing their guidelines, the fashion
consultants at Spiegel offer the fol-
lowing tip for petite women to
remember when choosing clothes.
• Pay attention to scale and propor-
tion. If you like checks, go for an
elegant houndstooth, instead of a buf-
falo check.
