The footwear industry appears to be suffering from the Hollywood sequel syndrome.Case in point: platform shoes.First, it was a '40s look popularized by Brazilian bombshell Carmen Miranda. Then, the comeback in the mid-'70s, and now in the '90s -- a decade touted for its back-to-basics approach to fashion -- the too-tall shoe is showing up again.Happily, many platforms this spring are downright feminine, resting on soles only 1/4 -inch thick. But then again, there are the throwbacks to those '70s-ish shoes-on-stilts.

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.

"I thought I knew her pretty well, but this threw me.""That's kind of the point," said Sherry Darnell, the girlfriend in question. "Everybody who knows me thinks I'm so prim and proper. I get tired of that image. I do have a wilder side."Radnor and Darnell were shopping together before the holidays so she could point out some specific styles.

Chicago--When a fashion director who travels around the world to ferret out fashion trends goes out on a limb and says, "The single most important piece to add to a fall wardrobe is . . . " you sit up and listen for the end of the sentence. Especially if you don't have to wait until fall to find the gem she's talking about.Pleated skirts are the items that Joan Kaner believes are the absolute essentials for pepping up a wardrobe. "I'm bullish about pleated skirts," says Ms. Kaner, senior vice president and fashion director for Neiman Marcus stores around the country, "because they change the whole silhouette with their movement, their mobility."

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.
