The skin show in fashion seems to be over, at least in New York. The fall collections were the most covered-up in years. At Calvin Klein the models were practically buried in clothes.The trend toward basics, symbolized by the Gap, may or may not spell a threat to designer fashion, but some designers are not sitting still. They're co-opting it.At Perry Ellis, one theme running through Marc Jacobs' collection was the pocket T-shirt dress, like the Gap but designerized. These pocket-T's were long, slit up the sides and made of gray wool jersey or rayon and Lycra spandex in colors.
