Veil" Is One
of the Season's
THB Influence of the East persists in the
Winter's modes. It asserts Itself in the
prevalence of rich brocades. It la teen
In the Oriental effects of evenitng wraps. The
headdress Is especially significant of the East.
The harem veil Is lomethlnr known hereto
fore only In literature or by occasional represen
tations on the stage. This Winter, for the first
time, it will he a part of the adornment of women
of the West. At one of the smartest dances on
Fifth avenue this Autumn, beaux mkde their
obeisance to a partner who looked at them as
the shy violet of the harem lookv at her lord,
through a bandage of veiling placed across her
eyes. It is the same mode of face drapery shown
In the photograph reproduced on tbis page. Sur
mounting It is a modified crescent In pearls.
Various forms of veil will be used, according
to the taste and the Ingenuity in adaptation of
the wearer. The encircling band of ribbon or of
Jewels Is again to be seen In the evening. A few
seasons ago the Greek fillet was popular. This
Winter It will he of the Oriental nattrre, for even
a fold of silk or a band of vermt rtbbnn has a
barbaric Jewel or design to add lts note of rich
ness to the original simplicity if ; that decoration
by the 0 reeks.
'Even where It might be expected leest the Ori
ental note Is struck in dress. It Appears In the
metal trimmed tuft of a fur cap. tThe orown of
a cap, shown on this page, is of net embroidered
in a conventional design In silver heads. In
front is a semi-military ornament of. ribbon and
silver wire, topped by a bit of the si.me kind of
fur as that which outlines the crown of the cap
and which Is carried up to Its top. iVcross the
crown, which settles closely and comfortably np-
,on the head, making a charming outline for the.
face, Is carried a loose fold of velvet of the same
color as the fur. The colors black and silver
are among the favorite combinations of the
The eumptuousness of the East is strikingly
apparent In the wraps worn to operas, to dinners
and dances. Manufacturers are rivalling each
other In the production of rich stuffs, and no
woman seems to practise economy in the direc
tion of her after 6 o'clock cloak. An example
of this richness Is a long loose cloak of gold net
worn over a velvet gown. In previous seasons
the material itself would have been regarded as
rich enough in effect. This Winter the gold and
silver nets in wraps or gowns are finished with
an edge of silver gold ribbon, as carefully
bound as though It were the braid with which
the tailor finished your street suit. From the
front and in the sweeping point at the back long
gold tassels depend.
Of velvet brocades, the design picked out with
silver or gold thread, there Is no end. Every
woman who can afford It
has at least one such
gown. The brocade ap
pears also in cloaks. A
handsome cloak Is fash
ioned In velvet and bro
cade. The sides and
front are of velvet. The
fan-like inset in the back,
and the border around
the edge of the cloak and
fastening it In front, is of
the brocade. The velvet
Is of purple, the brocade
of purple and gold.
