Anya Hindmarch has a history of repurposing iconic items and using them in her designs.  A few seasons ago (before Karl did it) she raided the supermarket to bring us bags and accessories based on the familiar food items like cereal boxes.  Now, she has mined the universal symbols of transportation and safety for this collection.

The clean, graphic lines of the icons work in some, but not all, instances.  We disliked the unfortunate placement of some of the patches over the models' crotches, and the highly literal interpretation of certain other looks (stop = red and go = green) but the imagery works on the bags and clutches for the most part.
