PARIS, Oct 3, 2011 (AFP) - Emanuel Ungaro's spring-summer look for next year bid bye-bye to Britain's Giles Deacon, who is leaving after just two seasons at the helm, the latest in a merry-go-round of designers at the French label.

While Deacon sent out femmes fatales in lace and sultry mini-dresses, Ungaro's look for next spring -- billed as a team effort by its creative studio -- returned to more sober cuts in lagoon blue and pomegranate prints.
Studio head Jeanne Labib took the bow at the end of a show that offered monochrome greyish blue ensembles over heeled Roman sandals, on day seven of Paris' nine-day fashion marathon.
Ungaro has seen designers come and go since Emanuel Ungaro hung up his scissors in 2005, including a stint by Hollywood bad girl Lindsay Lohan in 2009 which the couturier slammed as a disaster.
