“After all the warm, wintry colors and woolliness of fall, I wanted to use a lot of color,” said Jonathan Saunders of his resort collection. To that end, Saunders took his palette of graphic red, black and white, plus washed out neons from graphic designer Peter Saville’s acid-hued artwork for New Order and the Pet Shop Boys, while prints were influenced by Ettore Sottsass’ “Ultrafragola” mirror. Psychedelic patterns, such as oversize florals featuring black-and-white flowers traced in orange and set on a fluorescent background, were tempered by sharp sporty shapes — structured jackets and elastic-waist shorts. There was also quite a bit of shine, delivered in satin that was used on whole looks — a green trench, for example — and decoratively, as in a big floral motif on a reverse duchesse satin T-shirt.
