6:45 p.m., Paris: "If I miss Alber because of f*cking Margiela..." lamented one soggy American editor hustling into the Halle Freyssinet at 6:32 p.m., exactly 62 minutes after the show was scheduled to start. Don't worry, cherie---the waiters were still serving orange juice and champagne. The late-starting Margiela show and persistent rain---not to mention talk of a manifestation in town---meant that traffic was worse than the LIE during Labor Day Weekend. The ever-thoughtful Alber respected your struggles. As of now---6:45---the lights are just dimming and Frida Gustavsson is opening the show in a grey silk skirt and nude tank. Signing off---for now...

Yes, Maison Martin Margiela started exactly 49 minutes late. And yes, half the audience was damp (to put it mildly). But upon exiting the tent below Pont Alexandre III,the crowd encountered a full brass band playing a live version of the music that signaled the end of the show---perfectly timed so those exiting didn't miss a second. Bien fait!
