The growing coronavirus threat chased the luxury fashion world from Milan to Paris. A real crisis looms for designers, retailers and shoppers. Many attendees were sleep deprived; some were already sneezing and coughing from seasonal colds. Design houses were handing out face masks before their shows. Several high-profile American buyers and magazine editors, including those from T: The New York Times Magazine, decided to leave Paris early; some didn’t come at all.

Vogue has been chronicling fashion trends since 1892, and for a great span of that time, accessories have taken a back seat to clothing. Debates about shifting hemlines, wild new couture shapes, and the play of sexy silhouettes versus a more serious, ascetic way of dressing have long reigned supreme.
