PARIS, Jun 27, 2008 / FW/ — If a predominantly gay football team were to be created on another planet in outer space, they would need to contract Kremer to create the uniforms. His use of space-age foam filled nylon in neons and nudes created a scene from a future day and age.

Also, interestingly, every model wore bright white, patent leather Nike tennis shoes. His first models created the unique mood of the show by walking out in feminine, see-through, mesh, ankle length dresses in a palette of neons.

Following this was the theme of football pad-inspired tops, some with ruffle or ruching detail. The somewhat “normal” pieces in his line were white Capri length pants paired with electric blue or shorts with deconstructed white t-shirts.

The shorts, however, were made of foam that stood away from the body, and barely covered enough for the imagination. This show was an interesting breath of fresh creativity for the day, however its unclear what market he is targeting.
