Viktor and Rolf find the future during Paris Fashion Week. The out-of-this-world show opened with a large door lowering onto the catwalk. A model dressed in a tailored black jacket with an exaggerated collar and somber black pants kicked off the show. A strong techno beat helped models strut down the runway with their faces painted bright red. Adding to the futuristic feel were excessively pointy shoulders and spiky ruffles all over dresses. And highly-constructed metallic silver dresses seemed to recall suits of armor with their harsh look. At the end of the show the designers stood under a red light as the drawbridge-like door closed.
