LADY DUFF-GORDON, the famous "Lucile" of London, and fore
moit creator of fashions in the world, write each week the fashion
article for this newspaper, presenting aH that is newest and best in
style for well-dres.ed women.
Lady Duff-Gordon's Paris establishment brings her into clou touch
with that centre of fashion.
Lady Duff-Gordon's American estabKshment is at Not, 37 and 39
West Fifty-seventh street, New York.
By Lady Duff-Gordon ("Lucile").
sN the Spring the feminine fancy
lightly turns to fashions bizarre.
Wfe havo always a certain number
of what I call freak fashions, and
we indulge our love for the new and novel
by 'adopting these in their turn. It is bo
cause of the newness of the Spring; the
annual budding pf the flowers, and the flow
ing of the sap in the trees and shrubs makes
us Ions, like the earth, to cast asido our
Winter trappings and to put on as many
new things as our pocketbooks permit And
this is why I think that we women wear in
thete Spring months gowns and hats that
we would not wear at any other season.
Aa I have told you many times, this sea
son finds remarkably few freakish hats, but
as though to compensate for this our gowns
have many unusual features. And among
' these are the slit skirts and the near
trousers that some of the mondalnes are
Iain sending you tils week two models
that-'I think show the new Ideas to their
best advantage. The first one is the Tol
stoy gown. The skirt as you will see, fast
an to the front. The two sides are brought
together, the left over the right The left
side Is ace4 with satin of a contrasting
eeler, Tfcte arrangement gives thtt near-
trouser effect The peasant' blouse is what
gives the name to the whole costume, foe it
is modelled on the lines of those worn by
Tolstoy when he lived the simple life on his
Russian estate. The peplum is attached to
the skirt as you can see In the second fig
ure. Tho blouse is plain and tight and
draws on over the head like a Jersey. This
whole costume is created in old blue chiffon
broadcloth. The skirt facing is a bright
Worn with this is a charming littfc hat of
butter color straw swathed with blue and
green shot silk. The feather fancy out
spreading at the back Is the shade of
the hat
The second figure shows the bodice worn
with the Tolstoy costume. It is a very
charming yttle affair of blue chiffon over
green chiffon, and worn over a lace slip. It
Is simple, but delightfully chic. And right
here let me tell you that the day of tho
marquesetto and voile has passed for
bodices, and wo are back where we started
from the' chiffon counter. Everything that
can be made of chiffon must ho. This is

Mrs. Isabella Kellle, a writer and
a business woman, who has been suc

matrimony, fives her ldeaa on this,
