From flirty baby-doll dresses to Mongolian lamb jackets, the Paris fall shows featured plenty of great looks.

Veronique Leroy: High-waisted skirts, baby-doll dresses and satin confections that laced up the front were some of the best items at Veronique Leroy. She juiced it all up with Mongolian lamb jackets that evoked “Barbarella.”

Haider Ackermann: After a two-season hiatus from the runway, Haider Ackermann presented a sumptuously somber collection with hints of military and Asian influences. Highlights included his richly embroidered jackets, which were worn over skintight latex pants.

Lutz: Unexpected juxtapositions and transformations made for a solid show from German Lutz Huelle. An oversized gold scarf became a fetching top, for example, while a trenchcoat came with tails.

Tsumori Chisato: This Japanese designer’s fairy-tale collection was populated with embroidered owls and bright prints of playful cats and wistful trees. Striped ponchos and a patchwork dress of velvet and silk looked good.

Christian Wijnants: Young Belgian Christian Wijnants whipped up artsy knitwear, but his best looks were the colorful fringed confections that closed the show.
