Jonathan Saunders was in a joyful mood, tossing stripes, checks, argyle patterns and even a made-over William Morris wallpaper print into this color-packed collection of street- and sport-inspired separates. Saunders said his inspiration for fall sprang from the Eighties, “a time period that was about freedom of expression…when no one had any money,” said the designer, referencing Leigh Bowery, Michael Clark and other artistic pioneers of the period.

The collection was full of contrasts: There were tracksuit-inspired trousers with red stripes down the side and olive waistbands; petrol blue tennis sweaters with olive and black stripes; short cashmere felt jackets with thick contrasting stripes and raw edges, and baseball jackets covered in an old wallpaper print that Saunders drew himself, recolored and bleached. The designer said he particularly liked the play between a silver leather jacket and the long, chunky orange and aqua scarf that topped it.
