London Fashion Week: Jonathan Saunders
Jonathan Saunders took a leaf out of Marc Jacobs' book this season, with a collection that was heavy on the stripes and low on anything too complicated.
The joy of this collection was its simplicity - there were no crazy silhouettes or cuts, just beautiful, wearable clothes with metallic stripes or dark sequins that shimmered their way down the catwalk. However, there was a fun 'party in the front, business at the back' twist; a lot of the pieces had completely plain backs, making them look completely different depending on the angle.
Starting off with oily metallic separates, the look slowly moved into a series of textured teardrop pieces - mostly dresses, which looked delicate and pretty without being twee. Then, the ombre began, on wide trousers with matching tees, and peachy maxi skirts.
An art deco style swooping print came next, in matching late 20s / early 30s silhouettes of slightly flipped midi skirts and strappy tops or cardigans that then continued through most of the show.
Key pieces included the sharp striped dresses with metallic inserts (or were they prints?) and the heavily sequinned slip dresses that closed the show. See a video of the whole lot below.
