Marc JACOBS is quite the prankster. In September, the spirited designer staged his runway show in reverse. Then he designed a Louis Vuitton bag covered in bad jokes. Now, Jacobs is trying to pull a fast one by selling two nearly identical floral rings that come with one big difference -- a whopping $875 price gap. The oversized poppy design comes in two versions. One is from Jacobs' high-end collection ($907), while the other is from his mass Marc by Marc Jacobs line ($32).

PARIS -- After 16 years at the helm of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs showed his last collection for the French fashion house Wednesday morning. It was "for the showgirl in all of us," it said in the notes, a moving depiction of the Paris of our dreams on the last day of Paris Fashion Week. The set was an amalgamation of things from blockbuster Vuitton shows past, including a carousel, a fountain, a train station clock, a hallway of hotel doors from fall 2013, and an escalator from spring 2013's Mod-themed collection.

In the media maelstrom surrounding the shoplifting trial of film star Winona Ryder, the sweetly demure Marc Jacobs coats and dresses the actress wore in court were as oft remarked on as her defense. And now, it looks like the actress' wardrobe tactics have paid off. Ryder is appearing in Jacobs' spring advertising campaign, which was shot by lensman Juergen Teller at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. Jacobs, who presents his fall collection in New York on Monday, was unavailable for comment.

The most popular season for fragrance buying is upon us, and with it, the clouds of perfume that mark the entrance to many department stores. Looking for a whiff of Marc Jacobs' vampy new Lola? How about Thierry Mugler's Alien Liqueur de Parfum, which is aged in oak casks? Even if most shoppers aren't actively seeking the stars of the fragrance world, they will get a sniff as they run the gantlet of atomizer-armed perfume girls who gleefully spritz shoppers and keep stores joyfully aromatic.
