They came in fitted and ruched knits and a bell-shaped sleeveless velvet, and there was a lot of novelty in a group made from swagged silk threads, especially the narrow gold number. The smart investment this season? That would be the slender coat-dress. Everybody's got a version on their runway, but Rue du Mail's—with its one draped and fringed lapel—is more sexy than boxy, guaranteeing higher returns.

Taralis showed a couple of biker jackets in quilted washed and distressed leather. Less tough? Not from where we were sitting. That's hardly a complaint, though: His jackets still look great, cut lean and a bit meaner than in the past thanks to a bold, slightly peaked, and of-the-moment shoulder. The fit looks right on his slim trousers, too. As for the denim, it can be hard to justify a spot for jeans on a runway, but the designer gave them a reason for being there by adding edgy industrial zippers that snaked up the legs. Now might still be a difficult time to get a young business up and running, but from the looks of the editors and retailers lining up to greet Taralis after the show, many people were happy to be rediscovering him.

Another Great Dries Van Noten Show
Dries claimed he was bringing together two key flavors of Fall—David Bowie and the Ballets Russes On his catwalk those inspirations were so thoroughly absorbed into a heady collage of color, print, and texture that specific references were irrelevant the fabrics, the texture, and the color combinations wore Just amazing cant get over it
a place to find prints, patterns, coats, pants, and dresses which can go about a woman’s daily business without coming off all stark and careerist. All of that was present aplenty in the opening of this collection: jackets which seemed to be made of marbled tweed, tan pants with a tuxedo stripe, coats with fur sleeves, and easy-to-wear, not-too-fitted, silk long-sleeved day dresses with a dynamic diagonal-splash print. Job done, then, in the pragmatic department.
