Hunter Gather’s lineup of simple silhouettes had a rebellious edge this season. Broad-shouldered suit jackets with rolled-up sleeves were fastened with giant safety pins rather than buttons, while a black denim jacket and pants combo was covered with Jackson Pollock-esque splashes of paint. “We wanted it to be DIY, like it used to be back in the Eighties — where you’d splash your own paint on, or add your own zips,” said Chris Bailey, who cofounded Hunter Gather with David Bradshaw, at a presentation of the collection.

With models walking to the strains of The Clash, the punk mood also came through in zippers randomly placed on white jeans, and via bold bomber jackets in fluorescent orange or yellow nylon.
