Jean Muir: Fringe Benefits 1969



'By Jean Muir' is the pay-off line for a clear and cogent fashion philosophy. Her clothes for day are clean-cut, simple; they're young for the young, youthful but not juvenile for a grown-up woman. For evening the Jean Muir look is extravagant and discreet at one in the same time.


Silk fringing - Three deep bands of it, round the trouser legs of an all-in-one suit, 62gns. In neatly- patterned chiffon, buttoned all down the front, shaped with an Empire seam. The matching stole, deeply fringed, is tied round the head. Jean Muir at Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly, W1.




Small-print chiffon Jean Muir evening dress with two deep rows of silk fringe round the hem and on the long, long scarf. It buttons down the front, has long transparent sleeves with buttoned cuffs; £54 1s. 6d. Shiny flesh-coloured tights £1 15s. by Berkshire, also at Fortnum's. Brown crepe evening pumps, 5 gns, with brown tassels, £1 10s; at Bally, Kings Road, SW3.
