It's rare that a single designer, especially a newcomer, can change the course of fashion. But Romeo Gigli, who emerged as a design star here last season, has apparently carried it off. Gigli's soft look, body-hugging dresses with draped bubble skirts have influenced the Establishment here. And Milan, usually a bastion of hard-edge, sophisticated tailoring, has capitulated to a fall fashion look that is surprisingly rounded and soft.

Corso Como 10 is a street name, but it's also the name of the newest boutique attracting attention here. The shop belongs to Carla Sozzani and Donato Maino, whom fashion aficionados know from an earlier incarnation as the business partners of Italian designer Romeo Gigli. They say the store is a move away from status designer labels as well as swanky street addresses.

As the 1990s loom, fashion watchers are searching for the designers who will chart the course for the next decade. And they may have found two leaders in Christian Lacroix and Romeo Gigli, both playing the same theme--rich decoration--in different keys. For spring, Paris-based Lacroix's ready-to-wear collection, shown Sunday, was a tumble of clashing colors, patterns and fabrics.

Runway fashion here is presented as an art form, a grand fantasy of color and shape that often predicts the future's reality. So it did not matter this weekend that Romeo Gigli's models hobbled and minced because their gold-lace leggings were tethered to their sandals in a most inhibiting way.

Organizers got more (and less) than they bargained for, pitting Orient versus Occident in a panel featuring two of the world's most directional designers at the International Contemporary Art Fair at the L.A. Convention Center this week. On one side was Yohji Yamamoto, Tokyo-based guru of the Eastern school, master of dark anarchic styles that billow and tilt and fall into unexpected origami folds.

After seasons of broad, Joan Crawford-style shoulders in everything from T-shirts to evening suits, a certain narrow-mindedness has crept into fall fashion. Sloping shoulders--with no pads or small, rounded ones--are often accompanied by closely fitted bodices and lantern-shaped skirts. It's the look proposed by Milan's Romeo Gigli, whose fall line includes outfits pictured here.

The Dressing Game: Jaye Davidson, whose performance in "The Crying Game" rated a nomination as best supporting actor, is expected to arrive from London today, in time to make the Academy Awards ceremonies, a spokeswoman for the film said Sunday. The heretofore unknown Davidson is at the center of a heavily-hyped secret plot twist in the film, and the actor's decision about attending the Oscars--and in what outfit--has been the subject of much speculation.

Italian designer Romeo Gigli must have been watching a lot of "Starsky and Hutch" reruns when he designed his fall menswear collection. The leather jackets, stovepipe jeans, and wide leather belts with double rows of grommets scream '70s cop series. How about this red and oh-so-retro sportswear as seen on this model strutting down the runway in Milan.

As Italian designers unveil their spring collections in Milan starting this weekend, women's fears about the return of sky-high hemlines might well be put to rest. A preview of the new styles, photographed for The Times, indicates how Italy's cutting-edge designers all think for themselves. Krizia's Mariuccia Mandelli makes the strongest case for short with a thigh-grazing suit skirt to wear with a jacket that closes by way of a loosely tied knot instead of buttons.

A new, international fashion uniform emerged during this season's ready-to-wear collections, as top designers from Italy, Paris, New York and Los Angeles presented their own versions of a daringly spare ensemble. It starts with stretch pants that fit like exercise tights worn with a sporty turtleneck jersey or a high-collar blouse. Over this body-contoured combo goes nothing at all, except an oversize jacket that some designers call "the boyfriend jacket." The look is pared down and plucky, but Los Angeles women aren't likely to be shocked.
