Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012
“It’s a Miami color palette. And nothing strict in any way,” said Jonathan Saunders, surveying the sunny Deco-inspired pastels, fresh greens, and vibrant watermelon pinks hanging in his showroom. “I’ve been toying with the idea of ‘pretty’,” he said. “Everything’s A-line or full. And I’ve been looking at negligee details and nightwear.” 
As the designer who got his start by pioneering London’s new wave in print design in the mid-2000s, Saunders has come a long way from being a promising specialist. With this show, he’ll reinforce the fact that he’s grown into someone who thinks about a whole wardrobe—separates, as well as dresses, and eveningwear, in shapes with an air of feminine modernity. Yes, there’s still pattern (there is no getting away from it this spring), but it’s done subtly, in ombré’d jacquard textures, waffly knits, and delicate silks. How did Saunders acquire this sophistication? From getting close to American women, it seems. This year, he’s gone to New York, L.A., and Boston, doing trunk shows of his hit color-blocked fall collection, followed by a showing of his resort. Which, when you think about it, is pretty amazing for a young designer who’d never set foot in the U.S. until he went to the AngloMania-themed Met Gala in 2006.                                              By Sarah Mower [via]
