The best accompaniment to a collection characterized by old school anarchy? Endless possibility as presented by buoyant parade of hair color, of course. Just days after Marc Jacobs sent a line-up of pastel above-neck confections down the runway, Matty Bovan took the trend to super-saturated levels, with hairstylist Syd Hayes and colorist Josh Wood having created a series of cheeky manes perfectly matched to the show's layered ballgowns and exaggerated silhouettes.

The spectrum began with Mariana Zaragoza's lengths, hued an overdyed hot pink and secured in a punkish bouffant. Next came Dree Hemingway, her buzz cut colored a similar shade of roseate, while Ariela Soares's cerulean updo offered a pop art counter to the navy iteration that followed. But the main event came courtesy of Finn Buchanan, who closed the show in a blonde buzz stamped all over with iconic Coach monogram in a clever mimicry of animal print—and a nod to Bovan's seasons-long collaboration with Stuart Vevers.

With the Public Image Ltd kicking off a North American tour next month, and front man John Lyndon (formerly of the Sex Pistols) premiering a documentary about the group, it seems the rebellious lean that defined the early '80s has legs in the present tense. And for the style set? Considering Bovan's cadre of dipped-and-dyed models, punk may just be the new pretty.
