The collection accumulated pizzazz as it moved along: Graphic chevrons heat-bonded onto silk and trippy op-art tees referenced the road, as experienced at high speed, while dressier looks, such as a top and short shorts covered in paillettes, augured Vegas' bright lights and dazzle. The strongest looks, perhaps, were those in a relatively inexpensive pleated spandex—a column dress with a ruffle kicking out at the hem conjured, in a modern way, that louche, late-era Rat Pack glam. Elsewhere, meanwhile, things got a little more girly and soigné, courtesy of tailored pieces in a tile-patterned jacquard. All in all, this collection introduced a more sophisticated point of view for Opening Ceremony, albeit one still infused with the brand's signature sense of fun.
