Annus Domini Nineteen Hundred and
One promises to be a distinctly white
year in the annals or Fashion.
Already in Paris a perfect craze for
white gowns of every material for all
White gowhs'ilone in white cloth
the simpler the better are the smartest
thing possible for day wear at the mom
ent The idea of white gowns worn by the
cold light of a middle of-the-winter day
seems a bit frappe-isb,at the first glance.
but there is always that saving "but"
tacked to every' startling sartorial in
novation, somehow, when it is really
clever. In this instance it is beautiful
furs that invariably surmount the white
gowns that are the saving "but" and
give them all the warmth which cold
colorlessness needs at this season of the
I have been told that an actress, who
long since passed middle age, is respon
sible for this white wave in fashion.
Be that as it may, it is a fact that she
is wearing little else, and as she wears
it, and it makes one forget what year in
the last century she was born, it is like
ly to find many imitators.
One ot the white gowns that she
wears on her way to the theatre is in
white cloth with machine-stitched strap
pings of the cloth on the coat and skirt.
With this gown she wears a round not
Hat, like everyone's else, observe silver
fox boa twisted high about her ears, a
big muff and a black hat.
The only thing not white that she
deigns to wear is a most wonderful fur
coat, the like of which it would be bard
to tind, ahd which must have cost well,
enough to keep th6 wolf from the poor
man's door for many a day!
This wonderful coat is in the tinest
broadtail. It is loose and long so long
.that it sweeps the ground as the wearer
walks. It has a high rolling collar of
chinchilla, and a band of chinchilla out
lines it on either side to the feet. All
this is very good, but scarcely wonder
ful. It is left to the lining to make it
that which it does so thoroughly that it
it the joy and envy of every pair of
feminine eyes that sees it. This won
derful lining is made entirely of chin
chilla. The little Leasties are sewn so
that the dark parts come together, form
ing a star, and make it appear as though
Jbe-fur. followed a set design which, of
course, it does.
The effect is most unusual and origin
al. The old lady, who has possessed
almost everything worth possessing, in
her time sartorially speakug feels
this, for she never neglects an oppor
tunity to display that wonderful lining.
Under this "wonderful" coat she wears
always a white gown. And one may
look for an influx of long, loose black
coats, though perhaps not built on such
costly lines, to be worn over white
gowns. This I know, for 1 have seen at
least a dozen orders placed for them
since the ancient actress appeared in
her "wonderful" coa; ard white gown
the other day at a reception.
Boleros of sable and mink, with
toques of fur to match, are very smart
when worn with white cloth gowns.
Mrs. Clary Mackay was the first wo
man in town to affect white for day
wear this winter. She rarely wore any
thing else at the Horse Show, and was
very much criticised at the time for do
ing so; but the fad for white will soon
be so general that people will wonder
why they caviled.
Ruches of Mechlin in white and black
are another apparently unseasonable
fashion that is developing into tremen
dous popularity with the ultra-smart
Mrs. Mackay wears a huge ruche of
white Mechlin with' her sable cape when
she drives, and it makes a deliciously
soft touch against the rich fur.
The craze for white extends to hats
as well Mrs. Perry Belmont and Mrs.
Cornelius Vanderbilt are both wearing
Hat hats with one long white ostrich
feather twisted about them for their
only adornment. They have found doz
ens ot imitator,too, you may be sure.
The faehion-for wearisg.wbite in eve.
ning frocks is, ot course, nothing new
but this season it has been accentuated,
because it is as generally worn by the
mothers of possible debutantes as it has
bem hitherto Torn by the debutantes
themselves. Mrs. Stuyve Fish, Mrs.
Ollie Belmont and Mrs. George Gould
have worn, perhaps, the beet white ball
gowns seen "so far this season.
The fad for white for day wear seems
to have paved the way for the adoption
of cloth gowns done in all the lighter
shades, blue Gobelin blue, I think they
call it being the most in demand thus
Mrs. Jordan Mott is wearing one of
the prettiest of these new blue frocks
It is quite simple perfectly so, indeed.
The little jacket, is cut on the bolero
lines; the skirt is guiltless of ilouncn or
furbelow; the belt is Russian gold rib
bon threaded with blue, and the whole
success of the smart little frock depends
upon its exquisito coloring.
Apropos of color, one of the best ex
amples of coloring I have seen in a long
ieh while is the pink dinner gown worn
by an actress in a new play. It is the
soft deep pink that one finds in the
heart ot a rose that is, some roses. It
is in heavy satin crepe de chine, with a
wide flounce and narrow entre-deux of
lace and chiffon bo lavishly embroidered
in pink beads and pink pearls that only
a shimmer of the original white is left.
The crepe de chine is flecked all over
with the fine pink crystal beads in
broken lines. The bodice has the jewel
ed entre-deux arranged to give a loose
bolero effect, and strands of pink beads
ot a darker hue are strung across the
edge and fall nearly to the waist line.
Similar strands of beads form what
sleeves there are, and the top ot the
bodice is draped lightly in the palest
pink tulle. Town Topics.
