What better way to turn heads than a blinding dose of raver neon? That seemed to be the season’s M.O., as the highlighter trend memorably jump-started by Prada’s Linea Rossa relaunch last fall continued apace, both at shows like Off-White and Marine Serre and on the streets, which were littered with shocking pink pant suits and other warehouse party looks.
