There was an explorer vibe permeating Editions M.R’s nonchalant collection, imbued with soft-shouldered traveler jackets, floral camouflage motifs and those superpractical polo shirts — this season done in cool terry cloth. High-waist, full-length pants — some rendered in washed-out denim — had a marine drift, which designers Mathieu de Ménonville and Remi de Laquintane said they took from locals in northern France. The collection was also more ornamented this season. Cue floral embroideries on field jackets and Salvador Dalí’s lobster transformed into a humorous logo on polo shirts and sweaters. But the standout category was the label’s take on the trenchcoat. One looked like an elongated safari jacket and came in either robust canvas or feather-light nylon. The other married Editions M.R’s Left Bankcharm with pure comfort, as it walked the line between a bathrobe and a lounge-y outerwear piece.
