Faint rays of early evening sun filter through the palm trees in the courtyard of the historic Los Altos apartment building where guests are arriving for the first runway show of L.A. fashion week. Veteran retailer Shauna Stein is sipping white wine out of a plastic cup and soaking in the scene. In her 25 years in the fashion business, the co-owner of the On Beverly Blvd. boutique has made the runway rounds in Milan, Paris and New York, but never here.

I was shocked by Mary Rourke's commentary on I. Magnin in the March 5 View ("The Decline and Fall of High Society Shopping)." The gist of it seemed to be: Magnin's is old-fashioned and dying; anyone modern shops at Neiman, Saks or Shauna Stein. May I ask how Rourke would feel reading her article if she were an employee of a healthy Magnin's like the much-expanded Beverly Hills store? Might she feel, as I do, that someone was knocking her livelihood for no good purpose? I am not a disinterested party, being a sales rep who deals with the store, a customer and a Californian who'd like to see the last great California better store survive.

The "less is more" school of thought is a dominant one in fashion and furniture right now. The basic formula is to cover a simple structural mass with a smooth coating of solid-color fabric--stretchy, to ensure fit, in many cases. There is no ornamentation, print, or artificially constructed silhouette. Shape comes from the form beneath the fabric. In fashion, the concept is most apparent in the catsuits that are so popular this season.

IT'S EASY TO FEEL like Alice in Wonderland when you're wearing a Calvo hat by Ombretta Capecchi. Festooned with whimsical objects, they're perfect for a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Capecchi named her line for calvo, the Italian word for bald, and that playfulness comes through in her hats ($70 to $250).

It takes but eight minutes and $18 million worth of special effects to lay waste to a civilization in the new Las Vegas extravaganza "Atlantis," presented hourly in the ritzy Forum Shops mall at Caesars Palace.

The Look: This fall, women who dress like English dandies ready for a horseback ride will be right in fashion. Three-piece suits, white shirts with extra-long collars and neat little neckties are the way to go. And don't forget the top hat. Do It Big: Last spring, Milan-based Domenco Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showed the dandy look with a '70s Mod spin. One pantsuit from their new collection has a long, body-contoured riding jacket with romantic puff sleeves.

When Italian design duo Dolce & Gabbana showed butterflies in their spring and summer collection, the insects really took off. This outfit--a shirred silk chiffon gown (not a top) with a built-in corset over silver Capri pants--was one of the finale numbers at the Milan show. According to our model, Marta, these butterfly creations are flying off the racks. After seeing the dress on the cover of the February issue of Elle, she ran to Bergdorf Goodman to get one.

If you like to be one season ahead of the fashion pack, now is the time to buy something made of vinyl. It appears that patent leather, along with synthetic look-alikes, will be everywhere by fall. Slick and shiny as midnight rain, black is the preferred patent color but white, orange and red have also been seen on runways. Big-name designers across Europe mixed it with traditional fall fabrics. French designer Thierry Mugler used it for playsuits and leggings in black, white or pale-blue.

Shoes this season are flights of fancy. And the favorite inspirations for them are the 19th-Century Russian Empire of Nicholas and Alexandra, or the 18th-Century courts of the French kings Louis. Rich tapestry, brocade, taffeta, satin or velvet styles are meant for day as well as evening wear. Even leather and suede shoes are embroidered, some in gold. The shapes are unusual too. They may have round, square or pointed toes, but heels are always shapely.

And on this day before Halloween we present an ensemble as the designer intended it--and our own seasonal interpretation. THE DESIGNERS: Italy's Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are the natural choices for this Halloween trick. Their fall collection for the Complice label is circus-themed.
