Imagine a very glamorous female James Bond who needs to pack something for trekking through the desert, then change for black-tie nights in Dubai.

She'll sneak into the Ralph Lauren store - using an alias, of course - to shop for spring.

There was something fitting about the fact that on the wrap day of Fashion Week. Fluid silks and satins were draped across, around and over models' bodies to create slinky dresses and goddess-like evening gowns.

To anchor these flyaway slips of shimmering fabric, Karan embroidered sea glass, mirrored panels and metallic chain links at the hip, neck or across the hem of a wrap skirt.

Jackets came elongated and had an easy swing - a seductive alternative to the boxy, boy-cut variations on display throughout the week.
