Models with slicked-back hair wore looks such as black, glittery dresses with one shoulder exposed, pleated peach chiffon capes, or high-waisted PVC skirts. The designer tempered the flouncier elements with sporty, masculine pieces, such as a dusky pink bomber jacket edged in pink PVC, or flattering wide-leg pants. It was a salable collection — with edge.
