Lee Alexander McQueen's last collection was shown today in Paris. References to great works of art, imagery of wings and feathers, strikingly unusual prints, the color red: all of the late designer's signatures are here in this brief, 16-look show.

- "She's not involved in this collection," said Ungaro owner Asim Abdullah just before his show commenced this afternoon, Paris time. He was referring, of course, to "artistic adviser" Lindsay Lohan, whose future at Ungaro had long been in doubt. [WWD]
Maison Martin Margiela showed its first collection since Martin Margiela's departure from the label was confirmed, on the day owner Renzo Rosso announced he isn't seeking a new designer. There were big fur hats, trompe l'oeil trousers, and chiffon shrouds.
