Jonathan Anderson said he set out to work with the “clichés of resort,” thinking about how a girl would wear her bourgeois mother’s clothes. That translated into a collection with an almost exaggerated femininity — and lots of edge. There were soft wool gabardine trenches with rough seams, bow-tie blouses featuring dramatic capelike sleeves and cotton bustiers with delicate sleeves.

Anderson also collaborated with textile designer Jessica Mort, a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins, on three pieces in the collection, including a skirt resembling a sarong. Crafted from ruched net fabric, it seemed more suited to urban landscapes than seaside ones.
