French musical legends haunted Paris Fashion Week. Dries Van Noten spun Serge Gainsbourg classics, interspersed with segments of dialogue from the films “Slogan,” “Cannabis” and “Anna,” and Louis Vuitton played hits by the late Parisian songbird Edith Piaf (of course for every high there is a low: the house’s preshow music was lifted from “The Muppet Show”). Inspirations varied elsewhere, from Chanel’s cheeky “Our House” by Madness to a live concert at Hussein Chalayan by the white-gloved Jean-Claude Chapuis, who produced a symphony using crystal wine glasses, or crystallophones. Here, some of the week’s top hits.
