Do you remember that classic scene in The Graduate, where Mr. Maguire corners Benjamin to tell him the secret to success? "I just want to say one word to you. Are you listening?"
Well this season, The Word isn't "plastics."
It's, uh, "prune."
Okay, well maybe plum or purple in English. But hints of the color purple are the It fashion word this fall in Paris. I've inadvertently made the rounds of many of the boutiques pre-rentree, and apparently if you aren't tuned to prune you just aren't anywhere.
No total-purple outfits, please. No matching purple tops and bottoms. Just a hint. One smidgen, one item.
Thus spoke the fashion gods.
