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.

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!
