For Fall 2009, Christian Lacroix sent his models down the runway with luxe neck coverings. From fur to ruffles and a simple tie, there was something for everyone.

This Fall 2009 collection was a simplified version of Christian Lacroix's couture offering and was very well received by the fashion folk.

Implications - The neck has been an area of focus for today's fashion designer, with new releases of necklaces, shoulder jewelry and inventive scarves dominating the runways. The neck represents a part of the body that, though sexual, is highly elegant. This signifies a shift in the perception of beauty, proving that sexuality is secondary to subtle sensuality and classiness in today's society.
