Once the preserve of the bikini-clad, the bare midriff has been getting plenty of exposure off the beach lately. Designers are giving a yawn to the bosom and legs, and instead have bellied up to the midriff as fashion's latest focal point.Among the myriad of designer offerings for summer, Ralph Lauren framed the navel between cropped vests and hip-riding sarongs, while Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, shows some middle ground with bra-tops instead of blouses peeking out from under saucy little suits -- a look he carried over into his fall collection.

In early spring, they began sprouting -- several in jewelry collections, a couple on T-shirts, even a few on opaque pantyhose.But as summer approached, suddenly it seemed they wereverywhere: on Lycra leggings and on hot pants, on purses and tote bags, on barrettes and headbands, even on oversized sweaters and around the necklines of designer dresses.And spreading like crazy or not, we're not talking about weeds -we're talking daisies.That's right: Think "Laugh-In," think flower power, thinpsychedelic patterns.

PARIS -- Showing pretty clothes is not enough. Many of the designers presenting their fall and winter collections here in tents in the courtyard of the Louvre are trying to suggest other things: the end of the world, for instance, or simply the end of fashion. This premature fin-de-siecle blues is expressed in somber colors -- black is in first, second, and third place, followed distantly by wine and brown -- and the unfinished look, usually called deconstruction and marked by torn edges.

Get a leg upFor the past few seasons, women of style have limited their leg wear to black and cream. It has been black opaque pantyhose for fall and winter, while the warm months have found women wearing sheers -- either black or very pale creamy shades (but never white!). For the sizzling heat of summer, many have opted for bare legs or sheer neutrals that give the effect of a tanned leg.Come fall, that's going to change.Black, of course, is not going to go away. But the variety of colored and patterned hosiery and stockings may even tempt the most loyal fans of black to reach for something different.

Active sportswear has sprinted out of the gym, galloped away from the stables and schussed off the slopes. It's turning up on the runways in New York and Europe.Designers who survive beyond their first collections often credit street styles and real people as their inspiration, often finding fashion ideas in places most people wouldn't even think to look.In recent seasons, Americans' fascination with fitness and comfort convinced U.S. designers to incorporate the basics of active sportswear clothes that look sleek but feel great into their ready-to-wear collections.

Fashion flirted with hemlines, toyed with dresses and re-established pants as major players of the season. But the strongest message from the fall shows in Paris, London, New York and Milan, Italy, was an affirmation of the jacket as the heavy hitter in the current fashion scene.Sure, there are changes. Shoulder pads are no longer as formidable as the ones football players wear. Jackets are not so oversized that they could accommodate a couple of sweaters and a wool shirt underneath. Some have pronounced curves, as waistlines nip snugly above jutting or gently flared peplums.
