Jonathan Saunders - London Fashion Week Spring 2008
(LONDON) After Spring 2008, Jonathan Saunders will bid London adieu and will be showing in New York next season, which may seem like the logical next step for this talented Scottish designer. Already he has had good feedback from the other side of the Atlantic and his clothes seem to get better, more sophisticated, more modern, and more wearable with each collection. Saunders, who wowed the fashion world with his explosive geometric prints, has become an ambassador of modern sophistication. This time his inspiration was Ettore Sottsass-focused entirely on a clean, sophisticated silhouette, which accentuated curves, and on color-blocking, using a much more minimalist palette of black, white, yellow, and turquoise. For night, Saunders proved to be a thoroughly modern contender in the style stakes, showing feminine ruffles on skirts, and long columnar gowns in white and black.
