Jonathan Saunders has solidified himself as one of London’s print masters, but for Spring 2013, he wanted to present designs that not only tricked the eye, but presented something more sensual, with bare midriffs, plunging necklines, and slinky silhouettes. Glitz was at play with a collection heavy in sequin embellishment and iridiscent metallics, modeled on a cast including Jeneil Williams, Jourdan Dunn, Herieth Paul, and more.
Iridescent pencil skirts were paired with flesh-tone tops while metallic and patent leather stripes uplifted easy dresses, blazers, and crop tops.
Saunders got back into his signature groove with scallop and polka dot print dresses and separates and experimented with ombré.
Some of my favorite looks were those composed of thick colorblock stripes, adding a ’70s flair to the collection.
This was definitely new territory for Jonathan Saunders and I think he did a great job with stepping out of his comfort zone. On my splurge list from the collection are definitely the striped crop tops, perfect for pairing with everything from high-waist pencil skirts to wide-leg trousers.
