For fall, Jean-Paul Lespagnard imagined a woman obsessed with motocross who gets dressed to join her lover as he returns from fishing for a type of herring called maatjes.

It was quite a specific scenario, and so was the Belgian designer’s show. The clothes loosely referenced the biking theme via a motocross print colorfully spelling out Lespagnard’s name on a jacket, its shoulders cut nearly diagonally, as well as a black biker-type suit patterned with gold flowers.

There were also knit tops with matching shawl collars in a graffiti herring motif that looked cool, though there was no need to show the same thing in four different colors.
