NEW PARASOLS. I

NEW PARASOLS. The new parasols are large, and have curious handles carved with birds and animals, the new shot silk en tout cas, with coloured borders, rejoicing in papier-mache handles, matching in tone and taking the form of very large rings. Ecru and black para- sols are more used than any other, which is fortunate, for they harmonise with all dresses. Ecru muslin parasols with gold ribs are a novelty. If you have by you some semi-worn.out parasols, you may make them look a great deal better and fashionable by throwing a canvas handkerchief with Byzantine bordering edged with lace, across one side, and tacking it on lightly, the so-called handkerchief parasol being quite a new idea. Or you may take a wide flounce of Spanish lace and gather it on as full as you can just below the centre point, so that half the lace hangs beyond the parasol all round. There is the Mandarin shape, which is wide and flat, like a Japanese parasol; and the Pagoda, raised in the centre after the manner of a pagoda. They are very much trimmed, lace being arranged even on the inside, and full looped bows on the outside. Transparent black parasols are still used, but far more often are lined with a colour such as red, which shows them off better.—Cassell's Family Magazine.
