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.

Old Navy docks hereAn Old Navy store has been launched in the Baltimore shopping corridor. The 18,500-square-foot space at Long Gate Center in Ellicott City opened its doors July 30, but celebrations continue throughout the month with a grand promotional hoo-ha Aug. 16.Folks not familiar with this 200-store chain should check it out because it's one of smartest examples of concept marketing going. Old Navy is the budget-minded cousin of the Gap Inc., and as the name implies, offers no-nonsense clothes and gear we tend to associate with military surplus.

Yves Saint Laurent showed a short, skinny smooth leather skirt in Paris a decade ago, and it became a mainstay of women's wardrobes throughout the world all during the 1980s.Last year Karl Lagerfeld jazzed up his Chanel collection with zippered leather jackets based on the ones motorcyclists wear. He showed them with day and evening clothes, and many women picked up his cue.That was just the beginning. Now designers on both sides of the Atlantic are heavily into leather. In Paris, Milan and New York, the fall and winter fashion collections were filled with leather styles -- and not just motorcycle jackets either.
