Starting off on a menacing note with the music from “Jaws” and real sharks watching on, Olympia Le-Tan’s spring presentation at the Paris Aquarium turned sweet fairly quickly — in keeping with her tongue-in-cheek style.

The designer sent out a troupe of sailor chicks in extra-short petticoat dresses that showed off their garters; sometimes they posed as pinups wearing striped tops and tight Forties-style shorts in printed candy-pink satin.
More wearable looks included a pair of wide-leg sailor pants and a series of solid outdoor pieces such as a raincoat, trench and parka.

For the finale, Le-Tan upped the sex factor again, pairing high-waisted latex panties and fishnets only with nipple pasties and whimsical minaudières. This season the latter were shaped like fish or disguised as a Joseph Conrad novel — fittingly, the one where disaster strikes at sea.
