OF COURSE The New Avengers, back this week, will be setting new trends... jet-setting, too.  Seven episodes of the new series are set abroad: three in the chateau country around Paris, four in Canada.  Cover girl Joanna Lumley, the fashion-setter Purdey, will look a bit different, as well.  The Purdey hairstyle - haute coiffeur's answer to the Beatle cut is becoming shaggier, slightly wilder, but still with the fringe.  A sexier Purdey, too?  "Let's say even more individual in style and fashion," said Joanna Lumley (with Patrick Macnee and Gareth Hunt, right).  "Nothing shocking or offensive.  But I'm sure people will notice me."  COMEBACK SHOW FACT: Inventor of the "Purdey Cut", hairdresser John Frieda, husband of pop singer Lulu, is the man who modified the style for the new series.
