Playboys, daredevils and the golden age of motor sports were the inspirations behind this luxe, outerwear-focused show. “I was looking at images from the golden era of the Fifties and Sixties,” said Martin Cooper, the brand’s chief creative officer, after the show. “The racers were reckless, and their lives were about luxury, abandon, daring and sexiness.” That translated into a lineup of biker jackets with a double racing stripe down the front, and sharp, belted field jackets layered with knits or paired with statement shearling gloves. There were puffy parkas and coats, too, some with leather or fur trim and details, and one short, belted leather coat that popped in teal. Outerwear — which makes up about 40 percent of this collection — may have been big on the runway, but it wasn’t the only story. There were chunky knits with ribbed biker details at the elbow; neat, gray military-inspired suits with patch pockets, and other tweed ones with epaulets.
