LFW: Jonathan Saunders

By: Tamara Arnew

London marks a decade of fashion for Jonathan Saunders, whose staying power was exemplified in his Fall 2013 collection. The look was militant and ladylike with a conservative yet embellished wartime silhouette. The nineteen forties pin up feel of the garments had all the air of domineering females giving them an edge past suffragette appeal. 

Army surplus green and leather looks opened the show with a sunset striped trench and matching strapless dress that were both minimalist with a sophisticated vintage. Fall inspired natural applique shapes adorned pieces that felt deeply autumn in design and transitioned into transparency and an updated turquoise blue. There was a great “every-woman” play of prints and textiles in the collection separates that encompassed Saunder’s affinity for a more graphically influenced body of work, a reassertion of his victory in versatility and the hard earned nod of his well-tailored following.
