THE TRIUMPH OF TZAIMS LUKSUS 1963



TZAIMS LUKSUS


PRINTS


What Vogue Magazine
says under editor:
Diana Vreeland
MARCH-APRIL 1963
Editorial
PRINTS:
BOLD COLOURS
BOLDLY WEIGHTED
ON FABRIC, GIVING
A NEW PROPORTION
TO FASHION - TO
THE DRESSES ON
THESE PAGES
They blaze right out at you - urgent, contemporary, as brilliant as banners in heraldry; the designs - like mediaeval playing cards - startlingly bold, casting no shadows; the colours weighted on material in a way that astonishes the eye, refreshed it . . . really shakes up the proportions of fashion. these are prints one sees in dreams - bigger and brighter than life. But it's no dream we have here. What we have is a never-before idea and an authentic American fashion triumph: artist's designs applied to - dictating reams to the wearer: a perfected high visibility make-up - smooth hair: a spirit to match the prints - modern and adventurous. The artist is Tzaims Luksus, his "canvases" at right: printed on four-ply silk crepe {woven in France}
THE NEW BOLD PRINT DRESSES
LATE-DAY TO DINNER
Nothing to them - long sleeves, covered necks, elasticized waists - nothing but the glorious riot of colour. Both short; each made out of a single panel of silk - the print never repeats itself in Tzaims Luksus' designs. Dawnelle gloves. Near right: huge wavery stripes and whorls in a blaze of orange, green, yellow, fuchsia, blue. Far right: a print like a wildly magnified Paisley - swirls of fuchsia, yellow, and green. Dresses, at Bergdorf Goodman; Nan Duskin, Blum's, Chicago; Neiman-Marcus. Photo: PENN
