This outerwear-focused collection bore many of the Saunders trademarks — the graphic shapes, bold colors, and vibrant prints. But the designer pushed himself this season, working with new fabrics and a softer color palette to produce a standout collection.
“I’m trying to be less formal and experiment. I used bonded felt. I still push bright colors, but they translate to a softer palette with the new fabrics,” he said. Among the standouts were a burnt orange cropped jacket made from bonded felt, and a knee-length coat with colors that morphed from black to rust to bright orange. Saunders’ three-tone textured knits gave depth to the collection, while his inventive, camouflage-printed knits complemented the collection’s angles and graphic shapes.
