Ever since Romain Kremer won a prize at the Hyères festival in 2005, he has stuck to his uncompromising vision: a techno world in which cybernetic hues and male anatomy reign supreme. He has also garnered a cult following, and the hyped überstylist Nicola Formichetti styled his shows a few years ago.
Kremer’s latest collection, a future odyssey sprinkled with Pierre Cardin references and large, 3D-like glasses, was a hit-or-miss affair. While the sexy bandage tops, one-piece bodysuits and loose pants and shorts were winning pieces, the strapped jackets looked unflattering. And the netted, Lady Gaga-worthy beekeeper hats struck a jarring note.
