The opening look set the tone: Karolina Kurkova striding out in high heels, a tight topknot, and a short, snug, strapless black dress made from rib knit and patent leather. Sarafpour followed with more of the same, featuring pencil skirts with patent panels; skintight pants; and black blouson jackets cut to hit just below the ribs, all layered over knit tops. She wrapped satin bustiers over dresses and rib-knit tanks, and made short trench coats from slick white or black patent.
This designer has a witty sense of proportion, which showed up in pieces like the black satin camisole with a loose, loopy bow; the tiny boleros encrusted with big sequins; and the cheerfully chic, oversize gingham taffeta blouses. But when a lovely, body-skimming pink satin dress appeared on the runway, it seemed to have wandered in from a different collection entirely.
