FURS: For Rea


By Debbie Boros
Nineteen Sixty-nine and the
seasons ahead promise a "romance
of furs.'' More popular than
ev er, fIurs are being marketed in
every imaginable style; in two-
tones, chevrons, and tweeds, as
well as solids. The high furs are
possibly more in evidence than
the flat furs, worked in horizon-
tal bands and wxrap styles. These
are complete with toggle fasten-
ings or button closings, some
accentuated with leather inserts.
Furs are also being manufac-
tured in any length, ranging
from wraps and stoles to maxi-
coats. As lr. Ray Harrison of
Jacobson's said, "''ith Paris no
longer setting the standard for
length, the choice is left wide-
open for the individual. Fashion
trends now enable the person to
wear whatever he wants, without
having to worry about last year's
wardrobe being outdated by
changing fashions."-
The furs, themselves, are avail-

able in wide selection.

"It's a Cardin
Pierre Cardin, world famous
clothing designer, has decided to
beat his copiers to the sewing
machine. Revealing his new line,
Cardin said, "Why let other peo-
ple copy my clothes? Why not
copy them myself?"
And so the most recent show
at Pierre Cardin-New York he
had dresses, stylistic copies of
Cardin originals, at prices start-
ing at only $89.
Featured in the show were
Cardin's famous mini-skirts with
skinny-ribbed sweaters, some tra-
punto drsses, and a dress with his
signature from his Paris collec-
tion with petal panels or hemlines.

On Rings and Things



- ---- - -- ----- -- -- - -

Formerly, the accessories that
a young woman wore were noth-
ing more than that, accessories-
something added on which played
a secondary role next to clothes.
Nowadays, with the near count-
less types of jewelry available, it
is no longer worn as merely an
accessory. Nor is the use of jew-
elry limited to just one ring or
a set of, beads. More than ex er
before its use is restricted solely
by soace, rather than whether too
much is in GOOD TASTE. With
eight fingers to a person there
is room for at least six or seven
The age old, traditional class
ring has given way to homemade
rings, large and small rings, snake
rings or any other type of ring,
even the pop tops from a can of
beer. Perhaps if the finger must
be placed upon one type it is the
gaudy, large rings. Whereas the
number of rings one can wear is
limited, the amount of jewelry
hung around the neck depends on
the strength of the neck.

Realistically, many loops of
small or large link chain, beads or
just any type of necklace can
heighten and accent the dress or
blouse worn beneath. Chain us-
ually comes in either gold or sil-
ver, while beads are to be found
in multitudes of colors, even
plain brown beads get hung.
Even the old stand-by earrings
have changed with the rest. The
choices here range from small
pierced earrings to the bold round
ones that hang down to the
shoulders. The variety in be-
tween includes little ringing
bells, globes, plastic eyes, hang-
ing fringe and IUD's.
The sources are almost as nu-
merous as the choices. Recently,
much of the jewelry is of the
Arabian style, with emphasis up-
on some taken from the Islamic
culture. Back at home the Amer-
ican indians have been making
turq]uoise jewelry for about one
hundred years, yet only recently
has it sold for more than a
tourist item.
