Jonathan Saunders designs for “a woman or man who understands and wants a balance between simplicity and decoration in what they wear.” The Scottish fashion designer is famous for his work with prints and use of traditional silk screening techniques. The result? Every piece has its own specifically designed print and creates a visually exciting collection.
Jonathan Saunders at London Fashion Week has been happening from September 2003 until 2008, when he decided to take his collection to New York Fashion Week. He returned to London in 2010 showcasing a line filled with soft, pretty pastels. Flirty hues were also spotted in the designer’s spring 2011 collection. “Beauty, cleanness, optimism, and lightness,” Saunders said. “I wanted this to be a real summer collection.”
For the spring 2012 line shows at London Fashion Week, Jonathan Sanders has brought back sugary shades. Well, the ones from South Beach. “The colors of pills,” Saunders laughed. Oh, and super-cool prints, of course! Season after season, Saunders reinvents femininity giving it a personal flare. Jonathan Saunders’ fall 2012 collection included shirtdresses, flared skirts, sweaters, but also jackets and skirts characterized by a particular elegance.
On his modern and incredibly alluring spring 2013 collection, Saunders said that his main source of inspiration was “a Michael Clark disco girl”. “The hardest collection I’ve ever done,” Jonathan Saunders revealed after a show.
“I wanted to push myself to find ways of still doing pattern, but without printing – so by using texture, sequin, and woven effects instead.” For his ore-fall 2013 collection, the designer still kept his feminine approach yet adding some masculine touches. There are A-line skirts paired with loose knits, jackets, pants, but also glam gowns.
Jonathan Saunders will be showing his fall 2013 collection at London Fashion Week on February 17. Remember to check back for the designer’s latest collection!
