A color palette of inky black, scarlet red, powder pink and ivory set the stage for the dramatic silhouettes that were more evening wear fantasy than ready-to-wear. Sleek visors and barbell shaped belts in techno silver brought a futuristic vibe to the shaggy designs. Burton also injected some romanticism into the stunning display with feminine silhouettes and mid-drift baring tops.
