“It all began with us watching old people on public transport,” said Agi Mdumulla, who designs the collection with Sam Cotton. “Looking at old people who are a little bit senile, and who ride in buses and trains all day wearing all their clothes.” The show opened with a charcoal suit, featuring cropped trousers that had a rubberized rain spot pattern, and segued into enthusiastically layered looks that saw parkas under cropped jackets, smocks over trousers, and bomber jackets over suits. A rainbow digital stripe derived from the upholstery found on London bus seats was used for jacquard suits. A trompe l’oeil story had patterns printed onto T-shirts, and the inner designs of outerwear printed on to outerwear. Colorblocking was confident: A jade green blazer was teamed with mint trousers while an orange bomber was paired with matching pants — and a vermilion blazer.
