Jonathan Saunders – LFW Day 3
He began his collection with his classic A-Line dress, which had a decidedly military-esque vibe seeming surprisingly understated for his typical designs; however after 11 outfits of muted greens and browns his signature bright colours began creeping in.
A bright orange accented his next outfit and from there the colours escalated to become his signature look we all know and love.
He used bright oranges, baby blues, vibrant reds and pastel pinks in a wide variety of beautiful skirt/dress/coat/jacket combinations before moving onto more elaborate gowns. Although most of the contrasting materials worked in his favour, such as the stunning simplicity of this dress which would flatter most female forms with its tight fitting bodice and beautiful printed skirt, others were possibly too adventurous for most members of the public to wear.
The final section of his collection focused on glamorous gowns which were a mixture of floaty, structured, printed and plain. He used elaborate, almost art deco-ish prints, as well as delicately dyed animal prints. He accented these with panels of what appeared to be black PVC, and although it could have gone in a wholly different direction, his designs remained classy and elegant. He also used white PVC in his final two outfits, one of which was a long-sleeved dress completely made of it, incorporating a rarely worn fabric with his ever-wearable A-line dress.
