Bill Gaytten took the rat race literally in his fall collection for John Galliano, sending out models that looked like they just jumped off a bicycle.

The British designer paired snug blazers with black tights streaked with curvy stripes in colors ranging from deep violet or cider yellow. Elsewhere, the pants were worn with roomy outwear, like a burgundy satin puffer with diagonal stitching on the sleeves, and a metallic blue leather jacket bonded with matt jersey.

Even the evening clothes reflected the activewear spirit. To wit: A jacket made from a midnight blue fabric woven into a diagonal harlequin pattern was paired casually with a crisp white shirt and cycling pants.
