AP/AFP – German designer Philipp Plein has imagined a dystopian future where luxury glam survives and everyone worships the rock band Kiss.
A fleet of rag-tag, fire-spouting vehicles including a robotic dinosaur, monster trucks, motorcycles and patched-up military trucks roared into the big warehouse to open the show.
A rock band played on the back of an open-bed tractor trailer and drummers pounded on plastic barrels.
Fire-twirling dancers seemed to suggest one surviving tribe.
The men’s and women’s looks themselves were heavy on hard rock glamour with just a touch of menace.
Women wore chain mail dresses, T-shirt minis with Kiss motivs or sexy business suits with thigh-high boots decorated with crystal-encrusted straps.
Men wore suits with the distinctive Kiss script as a motive spray painted denim and Plein emblazoned hoodies.
Hair was decorated with spikes, and faces covered with half-skeleton masks, or painted like Kiss band members with big spikey dark eyes and white face.
