Initial Reaction:

High-octane androgyny.

Model behaviour:

Julia Nobis in a sparkling tuxedo jacket that shimmered under the intense spotlights, and Saskia de Brauw with lots of skin on show and golden hair.

Fabrication:

Burnished metallics and high-shine silk - best in a midnight blue.

Stand out looks:

A nude tulle ballgown, tucked up into bronze masculine shorts, and a blazer haphazardly thrown over the shoulders, and the simple inky jumpsuits that punctuated the collection.

Colour impressions:

Crystal colours - ink black to deep blue and amethyst purple.

How they wore it:

Hastily buttoned, tucked into waistbands and with chests bare or covered with the sheerest of layers.

Hair:

A twisted back plait that came over the head to form a sharp fringe.

Make-up:

Graphic eye with dark charcoal glitter.

Set:

Runway covered in black glitter sand and a tower of intense spotlights.

Soundtrack:

Chanting trance-like music.
