Madison Avenue Monday: The Fall Style Story

"The fashion world took quite a hammering this season.  It looked for a while as though we were doomed to appear with skimpy, drooping shoulders; skimpy, no-stride skirts, and all kinds of uncompromising lines....  But, as usual, designers propose and customers dispose, in the good old democratic way, so today we have a 1941 silhouette that makes sense."

"Long jacket, low set-in belt, wide lapels all point the way to a new trend in suits this autumn. 
Two-piece suit from Davidow."

"Kimono sleeves and slim skirt stamp this fitted topcoat and classic wool dress
as new 1941.  Ensemble designed by Charles Armour."

  1. Sophisticated 1940s daywear looks like this always set my heart aflutter and make me yearn desperately for a time machine so that I could go back and stock up on scads of them to see me through the nippy Canadian fall and winter that lies ahead.
