Upon Gay Paris.
BLOUSES OF FILMIEST LACE
Spring, fresh, verdant and color
ful, is the keynote of the decora

ion opening at the Brandels stores.
A profusion of apple blossoms, pink
and red roses and luxuriant foliage,
transforms the display windows and
the entire store Into a garden or
woodland, while real canary birds
and white Java sparrows In highly
ornamental Swiss cages, give Just
the proper- touch of "atmosphere"
to the whole ensemble.

ties of the gowns themselves! Tier upon
tier of sheer, delicate chiffons end credos

shimmering gold and sliver lace, or gold
and silver beads, all these are Intrrduced
to make up a work of art that inspires
