those of you who like to keep abreast
of the latest fashion with succumbing
to short-lived trends.
As far as the colors themselves are
concerned, it's as if the designers just
couldn't decide whether to show
pastels or brights so they decided to
offer both. Charlotte Perry, the
manager of New Image, clarifies this
by separating "Pastels for spring and
the brighter colors for summer."
Judith Gale, and LSA junior says, "I
plan on wearing a lot of pastels this
spring, - especially in prints."
Pink is clearly the leader of the ice
cream cone pastels, with mint and
peach close on its heels. These soft,
pretty tones are countered by the
bold, bright colors such as reds, blues,
purples, and yellows. The fashion
world calls them things like mango
and fuschia, but don't let them fool
you - we know orange and purple
when we see it. Sara Jevons, of
Benetton, describes a decrease this
spring in the neutral tones in favor of
these racy shades. She eleaborates,
"You're either going to see one tone or
lots of colors."
For a really dramatic effect, black
and white are as hot as ever. Marti
Walker's Becky Foote says, "We've
doubled ordered everything in black
this year." Brad Horowitz, and LSA
junior adds, "I like girls who wear
black layers." Additionally, Jacob-
son's and Nusport offer deep, rich
colors not usually associated with
spring wardrobes. For instance,
Nusport displayed the rust and
mustard tones of Anne Pinkerton.
This may take some time for the more
unfortunate among us to accept - you
know who you are. If you haven't

made it to warmer climes often
enough to keep that year-round tan, if
you haven't had the chance to see a
single palm tree, or if you haven't felt
the sand between your toes since
those far-off days of summer, then
you'll probably stick to the long-
awaited springtime colors and leave
the mustards and marigolds to the
aesthetic elite.
As far as pants go this spirng, you'll
have lots to choose from. Leggins,
those limb-hugging pants made from
stretchy materials, seem to be the big
news for the season. A few emphatic
salespeople hastened to inform me
that stirrups are definitely dead. Now.
I bet you're saying to yourselves,
"Hey, what am I supposed to do with
all my barely-worn stirrup pants?"
Since I, too, was nearly shattered by
this newsflash, I have to tell you I
think there just may be a remedy for
this potential catastrophe. Maybe, if
we're tricky, we can wear our slouchy
socks over the stirrup things and fool
everyone. Now, this won't work if
you're wearing sandals, and I
wouldn't tell the kids at home to try it,
but I'm just a risk-taking-kind-of-a-
girl and heck, sometimes I get kind of
nutty when styles come and go before
I have a chance to cut off all the tags.
In your excitement over the
season's great shoe selection, don't
get so flustered that you forget about
socks. Coordinating spring's colorful
socks with your outfit will give it a
more finished touch. In addition to
the assortment of polka dots, checks,
and geometric designs, solid socks in
heavy cotton, slouchy materials are

out of her home. Eventually, "things
got out of hand" and Arnold decided
she needed her own store. Thus
Patricia Miles was born this past
"I looked everywhere before I found
this location...there are three things
to keep in mind to make a business
successful: location, location, and
Arnold enjoys being right across the
street from Matthew Hofmann, a
jewelry store, and Renaissance, a
higher-priced clothes store. "We
share a lot of customers," says Ar-
nold. "This location is great. It's cen-
trally located, near campus, and yet
it's got a nearby parking structure.
And it's near Jacobson's."
Arnold describes her customers as
those who are looking for "different
and exciting clothes - something not
everyone on the street will be
The store carries some career and
professional clothes but mostly
casualwear. It also carries handbags,
both exotic and funky jewelry, and
other accessories.
"We'll enhance anyone's present
image," says Arnold. "If someone
just wants a basic top or skirt, she
would go to Hudson's or Jacobson's.
If she wants a look, she comes to me."
"Basically ," says Arnold, "the
clothes I sell are fun clothes. Clothes
for people who are looking for
something different, yet affordable."
Just around the corner from
Patricia Miles on North University is
the newest addition to the family of
high-fashion retail, L'Ultima, which
opened the beginning of this month.

Owner Suzy Chen, a resident of Ann
Arbor for almost twenty years, says
she had noticed a lack of high-fashion
stores in Ann Arbor. The purpose of
L'Ultima is to provide Ann Arbor with
"something else - something more
elegant and a step up from other
sstores in the area." L'Ultima fits
that description. Here, the fashion-
minded customer can spend
anywhere from $150 to $300 for a
single item of clothing. The store is
arranged much like a museum - a
display table of delicate shoes when
you first enter. Individual outfits are
hung on the wall almost like paintings
in a gallery. Be sure to notice the
exotic mannequins - one in the
display window on North University
and one in the middle of the store.
In spite of the prices, Chen says
"There is definitely someting here for
the student - especially graduate
students starting out in the business
Altough L'Ultima does carry some
casualwear, its emphasis is on
dresswear -including clothes for the
professional woman.
"I have a woman coming in
tomorrow who needs at least five out-
fits for her new job," said Chen.
L'Ultima specializes in French,
Italian, and Japanese-influenced
designers, including Morisane,
Amuleti, Parrini, and Noelle Roudine.
The store also carries designer han-
dbags, belts, individually designed
jewelry, and Charles Jourdan shoes.
"We are the odnly ones in Michigan,
except a place in Troy, that carries
Jourdan shoes," commented Chen.
They are comfortable, elegant, sexy-

looking shoes."
In regards to the high prices of all
her merchandise, Chen says, "You
are paying for quality."
"I think there is a demand for (high
fashion)," added Chen. "There isn't
another store in Ann Arbor where you
can by clothes for weddings or
graduations. People need dressy
clothes, and they couldn't find them in
Ann Arbor.
"I like helping people look nice and
dress well. I opened the store because
I wanted to do something I really
liker, that was fun. As soon as it stops
being fun for me, I sell the store."
Mark Freedman, the owner of
Nusport, a clothing store for both men
and women, also noticed the need for
high-fashion stores in Ann Arbor.
"I found there was a gaping hole in
the market between the stores
already here and what people were

looking for. There was no place for
the hip, up-beat professional to spend
his or her money. There were a few
stores, but they were considerably
more expensive," said Freedman.
As far as price goes, NuSport is
comparitively cheaper than its com-
petitors. Most items are under $100.
Though most of his customers
range from ages 23 to 45, Freedman
gets a lot of students.
"I didn't really expect much
student business because of our prices
and our locaton (200 E. Washington)
which is off the beaten track."
NuSport specializes in clothes for
people who like to look good without
spending a lot of money. "We carry a
lot of separates. I like it when people
can come in and find a piece that will
go with seven or eight things they
already have, rather than have to buy
a whole outfit," Freedman commen-
