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.

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.

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.

In just a few years, Apple's iPod MP3 players have gone from geeky gadget to "gotta have it." But having the pricey gizmo may no longer be enough. This fall, couture designers from Chanel to Marc Jacobs are offering cases in calfskin, signature canvas, you name it - sometimes at more than $300 a pop. But is the average MP3 junkie ready to dish out more for a posh case than for the player itself? "Over the last year or two, the market has shifted on iPod cases," says Dean Constantine of XtremeMac of Weston, Fla. "It used to be that protection for the iPod was the most important thing.

Under all the lace and velvet, sturdy tweed and filmy chiffon, fall fashion's modern fantasies of Edwardian dandies, Russian officers and Scottish Highlanders are built on old-fashioned jackets.Romantic is the operative word this season, as international designers ransack archives to revive vintage jacket shapes drawn from across the centuries and across the globe, from the snowy Tyrolean Alps to the misty English hunt country.Blowing the dust off the foppish styles first set in the drawing rooms of late 19th-century London, designers on both sides of the Atlantic dote on dandy looks this season.
