Woman's Sphere. THE CULT OF THE EVENING COAT. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

Woman's Sphere. THE CUI-T OF THE EVENING COAT. A Parisian fashion writer says the new evening coats will be ecclesiastical in their cut, in their incrustations of sold and silver, and in their stoles, and for those who have at the collars will be of priceless lace. They are given imposing names— "Chinois." "Chasuble," and 'VPagode." "Make them of brocades ana velvets in which a queen might be crowned ; line them with ermine, and edge them with sable: fling- a bit of priceless lace against tha throat, and you have the evening coats of Paris." • • • • THE DRAPING OF THE COAT. Nearly all the evening wraps are draped, the drapery coming under the arms and at the bottom, wrapping the figure closely below the hips. Al though the evening corsage i& invariably low, tha coat makes no pretence of covering the throat; pvpn if the long, closing line is edged with fur, or the coat is finished with a wide collar of fox or sable, both the collar and the closing leave an open V at the neck....

Some Narrow Escapes. PALMED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 February 1914

§Some Narrow Escapes.§ By Adam Bachelor. PALMED OFF. Living in lodgings, a bachelor is subject to many risks that do not attack the adult son "living with his people under the guardian eye of a good, tough mother, uni protected by more or less sisters who know what women are, and appreciate their duty towards their unmarried male relation. The young, attractive, unwed' male dweller in boarding-houses is peculiarly open to attack. He lives en .familie, as it were, with a certain number cif spinsters, most of whom may rea sonably he suspected of cherishing mauimoniai designs on any eligible within hitting distance. The close association of the general home na turally conduces to familiarity—the familiarity that breeds contretemps; and the youth, if- not equal to that eternal vigilance which is the price of liberty, inevitably finds himself selected by one or another of the ladies, and being cut out from the mob, so to speak, hedged' off and cor nered in as hers exclusively. The brandi...
