She had always dreamed of a career in science, but she was already recognized for her superior sewing skills and keen eye for color. "I remember going on a tour of Europe with my high school teacher and going to see Cardin and Pucci and Gucci and I didn't care about them at all," says Barnes. "But she really pushed me.

American menswear designers are joining their women's wear counterparts in unveiling less-expensive secondary collections that many Southern California stores will be banking on for fall.

Sure, most men don't enjoy shopping for clothes all that much. But when the need calls for sharp-looking duds, they can even out-fashion the fashion slaves. A case in point: a trunk show for Jhane Barnes menswear collection at the Alex Sebastian store in Costa Mesa. No talk of the World Series, but just guys previewing--and apparently digging--the silk, cotton, viscose and the eco-friendly Tencel fabric used in the fall/holiday line.

The "media alert" for the first Camarillo outlet mall shopping spree to benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving touts an informational exhibit, a sidewalk sale, an all-day . . . wine-and-cheese reception.

THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MEN'S UNDERWEAR SINCE JIM PALMER: Finally, equal time for sexy, sensual men's underwear. While women have numerous shops devoted to high-end unmentionables, men have had a far tougher time finding fine-quality undergarments. But now in the Beverly Center is Boxer Bay, carrying men's briefs, boxers, robes, nightshirts, neckties and more--all made of luxurious cottons and silks available in Europe but almost impossible to come by here.

If menswear designers have their way this spring, American men will be dressed in "kinder, gentler" fashions; clothes that wear gentler and are kinder to the wallet. At the annual Men's Fashion Assn. gathering in Los Angeles last weekend, structured suits and coordinated sportswear gave way to "softly constructed" business clothing and mix-and-match separates.

The new Bullock's Men's Store at South Coast Plaza obviously has its mind set on men. But it's too soon to tell if men will see it as filling a shopping niche.
