Raf Simons' brilliant new take on his preferred palette of sizzling colours had our mouths open in awe. From cobalt and apple green, to magenta and tangerine, every colour appeared to have been dialed up to an unbelievably high, yet pure, intensity. Just a shade shy of neon, the colors looked as if they had been heated and were just about to jump out of the frying pan. Simons layered the single color brights, such as a hot watermelon pant and black coat worn over a fuschia top and grass green jacket, or blocked them on the same outfit like a column gown constructed from a white tshirt and fuschia skirt. The colors were uber modern while the constructions - peplums every where you looked, voluminous palazzo pants, trapeze coats and heavy taffeta ball gowns-- borrowed something special from the hallowed halls of haute couture.
