From the dark florals at Alexander McQueen and Nina Ricci to the poetic fringe at Lanvin and Valentino, the fall collections have a rich, bohemian vibe. And as I plan my trip to Paris and Milan this month for the next round of fashion shows, I find myself gravitating toward that look. A fringed skirt, an embroidered coat, and a pair of snakeskin boots are perfectly suited to the romance of Europe in the autumn. I’ve long wanted to visit Vienna and, wardrobe-wise, this might be the time. I can’t think of a better outfit in which to sip mulled wine and stroll along the Danube.
