and likely to remain so for a long time to come,

firms to bring in tke Directoire
style have not met with much
success, as I have before had
occasion to remark. A.t teatime
the other day, however, at one of
the smart Pans hotels, I saw one
of the leaders of fashion boldly
wearing a dress that was unmis-
takably inspired by the period in
question, and quite pretty enough
to make us like it. Xhe skirt and
jacket were of black cloth, the
latter being drawn in at the waist.
It had large lapels, and the white
known. As to colours, those
most in request are various
shades of red, ranging from very
pale currant to that of the fruit
when it is beginning to ripen ;
warm and luminous straw tints,
skyblue, pink and mauve. Tli ere

plenty of white.

given by the faskionable painter of tke moment, two ckarmmg women
ventured to suggest tkis style in dresses wkick, tkougk quite different,
were equally pretty. One was made of Fascinatioru and tke otker
of lace. Xkese dresses formed an amusing contrast, one ty V lonnet,

Tke fortkcoming appearance of tke spring dresses once more draws attention to tlie
vexed question of protecting tke new designs wkick, as soon as tkey are krougkt out in
Pans, are copied in tke most skameless way. One of tke principal worries of a leading
couturier is to protect kis inventions against pirates.
Few people reakse tke loss tkat is sustained ky a dressmaking firm wken a successful
design is imitated. Going to law is of very kttle use, and, even wken tke plaintiff
oktams a verdict, tke judgment is usually given in suck dekgktfully suktle terms tkat
tke defendant can leave tke court, feeling as kappy as if ke kad won kis case.
It is a great pity tkat tke law skould give so kttle protection to an industry so essen-
tially ckarmmg and Parisian, wkicli krmgs so many milkons of francs into tke country
every year. Tke competitor wko makes kis way into tke premises of a rival firm and
takes advantages of tke confidence sliown towards kim to kuy drawings and models, copy
tkem, and sell tke dresses as if tkey were kis own design, deserves to ke looked upon as a
tkief and to ke treated as suck. Legislators, wko are justly severe in cases of ktterary
plagiarism, ougkt to defend dress creations against piracy.

Every day, between $ a/*^ 7 />. m., half a million Parisiennes receive communion in the
form of tea and cakes.
It U an observance, and one might go so farad to call it a sacrament or even a religion.
Nicole is one of these 500.000 drinkers of hot water, and nothing in the world would
induce her, even for a single day, to neglect this custom, which is undoubtedly more important
to her than all the others.
The other day we were talking about the "great day " on which the anarchists and the
Bolshevists and the rest of the " ists " hope to bring about the final ruin of existing institu-
tions, and Nicole remarked that she did not care, so Ion cj as it did not take place at tea-time !
Five o'clock is essentially the woman 's hour because it gives such admirable opportunities
for gossip and tittle-tattle and talk about nothing in particular.
Nicole of course never goes to any tea-place except the on that happens to be in fashion.
There is a new one every year, but the surroudings never change. You always find the rooms
decorated in the same Louis XVI style, more or less modernised, the same conceited, absent-
minded and tyrannical attendants, the dame hot water, the same plum cakes and the dame
padtry, not to mention the dame band, the dame jazz and the dame lonely man waiting for a
girl who had not the dligbtcdt intention of coming.
Nicole dpendd dome delightful tuned in thid highly Paridian tea-room, where people
chatter in every language under the dun. She feeld that the overhead lighting /naked her look
her bedt. She telld all dortd of dtoried to her women friends, who arc thenidelved do budy chatte-
ring that they do not pay much attention to her. She named all the celebritied in the room,
and calmly adsertd that the young man dolemnly eating a cake in the corner id the Prince of
" Yed, indeed, my dear, and I
am certain he would bow if he daw me.
T^e danced together at Deauvillc ! "
Unfortunately the PrinctJ of
J la Led— if it id the Prince of JValcd—
does not raide his eyes but proceeds to
devour another cake.
Nicole aldo id a good cudtomer. In dpite oj her doctor' d advice and the danger of getting
fat, dhe managed to get through at leadt half a dozen caked in a dort of cadual way ad if dhe
did not really care about them.
The feminine appetite at tea-time id frightful. O pale and doulful beautied of the
romantic epoch, where are you now ?
In the evening, when dhe ditd down to table, Nicole will addume^y an angelic air
and remark to her hudband :
" I'm not hungry. Don't you think
dinner id an unneccddary meal ? It would
be much betted for you if you judLj ate a
little dalad, Like me ! "
And if her hudband objectd, the con-
verdation doon becomed domewhat acid. Tza
id daid to affect feminine nerved.

While retaining a line of great simplicity, Fashion cultivates refinement of details to an unprece-
dented extent. Never lias so mucli attention teen paid to what are called the accessories of feminine
Shoes, for instance, have attained a degree ot luxuriousncss hitherto unknown. Cinderella s slipper
would cut hut a poor figure in comparison with the little shoes of to-day, made of gold and silver lame,
hrocaded satin, emhroidered and headed velvet, hand-painted plush and printed hrocade, such as are now
in favour for evening wear.
These delicate marvels not only match the toilette hut torrow its materials, its tone, its ornaments and
its styles. Even the heels have incrustations of precious metals, mother-of-pearl, paste diamonds and
precious stones arranged in chesshoard patterns, designs or monograms. Some lacquered heels are decora-
ted with miniatures.
Shoes for day wear arc stitched and seamed to an extraordinary extent and are no less precious than
the others. Weh ave said good-hye to the suhstantial shoe and the high upper. Henceforth the skins
ot lizards, snakes and crocodiles, dyed, silvered, gilded and baltke, will he the favourite materials of the
chic shoemaker for his afternoon, carriage and dancing shoes. Deerskin and kid are printed and worked
up in all sorts of ways, and patent leather assumes the tints of the rainhow.
The shapes are exquisite, with a steady tendency towards the very pointed toe. The general style
is a semi Louis XV with ingeniously contrived openings. Such creations seem to he made expressly for
the feet of fairies. One wonders where this cra:e for refinement in foot-wear will stop.
