The costumes were created in simple tones, on natural fabrics like linen, cotton and knits all devoid of surface details. This allowed the lighting designs to create color, and texture on the simple surfaces.
In addition, the clothes needed to be able to shift from factories, open fields, industrial interiors, and other modern spaces which the lighting facilitated by shifting color and patterns. The neutral scenic space also contributed to the total design.
