Shaun Samson is known for his roomy, laidback silhouettes, and this season he worked them in a series of faded plaids, to cool effect.

 

Models wore oversized check shirts in shades of muted yellow, blue and red, paired with board shorts or chinos.

 

The plaids also gave a work-wear feel to the collection, as did the models’ Timberland boots and blacksmith-style aprons, which bore enigmatic pronouncements such as “adolescent, precocious, aspirational,” or “delusional, radical, bliss.”

 

And while the California-born designer’s fall collection wasn’t exactly designed for freezing climes, he nodded to the season by adding fur scarves and mittens.
