- Story Text: The world's fashion pack has moved to Milan from London, but you'd be forgiven for thinking you were still back in the land of upper-class tea parties on English lawns at Blugirl, whilst Clips stayed true to its animal print past, playing shiny black sequins against human skin to give the now everyday leopard spots new life.
The world's fashion pack moved to Milan from London on Monday (February 24, 2003).
Against a backdrop of a country house with a sportscar in the drive, models strutted about in thigh-length woollen stockings like rebellious teenagers determined to sexy up their school uniforms by cutting their tartan kilts to just below their bottoms.
The Blugirl look for autumn/winter 2003/4 was full of references to the past with printed satin dresses the models' grandmothers might have worn just after the war but slashed short on the hips and wide and low across the shoulders.
For the colder days, grab a long, slinky, woollen number with chunky polo neck which your mother might wear as a jumper but Blugirl's girl will wear as a microdress.
And if next winter calls for a bit of sportsmanship, don't let it be anything but horse riding -- tight black jodhpurs under a riding coat or brown corduroy will keep you in the best British pony club circles with a touch of Milanese style.
Eveningwear for autumn/winter 2003/4 was all black with tiger stripes and leopard spots of over-sized sequins sewn on barely-there lace, letting models flesh flash through for a three-dimensional animal print.
For day time, animal prints became flowers in carmine red embroidered into tops worn over skin-tight leggings in black or elephant grey.
There was a good taste of the 1960s in the show with sleeveless shift dresses skimming the top of models thighs either in tones of orange and cream or Clips trademark leopard print hanging off a black band at the bust.
Clips also reminisced about its schoolgirl days with models sporting high-buttoned double-breasted coats, sexied up with bright orange, yellow or red fur at the widely-cut collar.
