Fashions, by Fay Hammond, Los Angeles Times Fashion Editor, from a 1960 theater program:

Fashions, 1960

A few of my favorites…

New York designer Catherine Scott achieves a charming effect in a tri-color costume of Forstmann’s sheer Sandretta. Its big-sleeved, short-cropped spencer is vivid red to top a softly box-pleated navy skirt and shows off a white silk shirt.

(More on Catherine Scott here; more on Forstmann’s Sandretta here.)

Somali leopard collars a chamois colored coat of luxurious fleece from the house of Brittany. Giant pearl buttons line up in a double-breasted row here, while slanted pockets accent the coat’s fluid, tapered silhouette.
