Paris & London fashion seems to be talking about three-dimensional fashion, and the future. Tonight, at Salle Wagram, the same place where Alexander McQueen staged his dance-marathon collection, his successor, Sarah Burton, gave a magical rendering of both. The show started calmly with snowy white bell-shape coat dresses and laser-cut calf skin, resembling lace. All the models wore helmet like white-blond wigs, their eyes shielded by visors. Then Ms. Burton turned up the volume, first with feathery and fur coats (like dandelion fashion heads before the wind catches them), and gradually the shapes became monumental in scale. Ms. Burton’s presentation was beautiful, but the monumental aspect was riveting — how it affects your eye. Tomorrow, in the McQueen showroom, I’ll take a closer look.

Glimpse at Fall 2012 Paris Shows: Chanel, McQueen, Valentino, and More

The end is in sight! Today in Paris,  Chanel showed a crystal cave filled with sparkly eyebrowed models in black and layered jewel tones. Alexander McQueen was very floral, showing both dresses covered in flowers and dresses that look like flowers for fall 2012. And Valentino Paris showed lots of lady-like leather, scalloped necklines, and intricately beaded dresses. See these shows and more details in our fashion galleries. – – By
