Paris: Always eccentric designer Marco Zanini turned to his favorite filmmakers for ideas this season; flicks from Alfred Hitchcock, Tim Burton and John Waters inspired a collection characterized by throwback glamour, fantasy and mild kitsch. Sci-fi chignon updos and severe cat-eye shades punctuated outfits ranging from full-skirted “New Look” ensembles and boxy satin suits to sparkly knit sets and retro-modern swimwear. Although Zanini wasn’t aiming directly for midcentury housewife aesthetics, his collection definitely caught a bit of that Stepford bug that has been going around. –Whitney Kessler
