Perhaps inspired by the slash-and-burn style eighties revival we saw stalking down the runways, designers have eschewed the polite prints of summer for high tech looks for fall. Solid colors ruled the runways, either in bold blacks or muted neon shades. Fabrics themselves were substantial, employing nouveau weave techniques and were manipulated with origami-inspired pleats and geomtric draping. Not quite your standard pocket-protector gambles, these babies are more the revenge of the nerd.
