The show opened quietly with a bustier dress with a black bodice and a fluttering sky blue skirt cut in a Fifties length. Simons reprised the glossy bell-shaped skirts, the pinch-waist tuxedos and the sleek bustiers worn over cigarette pants, models’ hands jauntily tucked into pockets.  A modernist at heart, Simons gave familiar silhouettes futuristic verve with bold, even strange colors: icing the edge of a black bustier dress with granular neon yellow embroideries, or lighting up a column of creamy Guipure lace by tinting the edges of floral shapes a shade of red as searing as a laser.
