Saunders’ razor-sharp vision was in full focus this season in a collection that played with “early digitization, synthetic color, tailoring and suits with flashes of color,” and showcased his first accessories collaboration with Smythson. Polka dots — ranging in size from pinpricks to Smarties — popped up everywhere. They were bonded onto sand-colored, tone-on-tone tailored jackets and screen-printed onto cherry red creased trousers and transparent silk and Lurex shirts. Saunders also created satin jersey varsity jackets in acid or emerald green, and Neoprene ones with photographic prints of blue skies with white clouds. Models in the presentation clutched two-tone leather briefcases or computer bags, in white and Smythson’s signature dark blue, or red and black, all of them with bold and graphic printed linings.
